Ulrika Olund - Sick And Tired

Ulrika Olund - Sick And Tired
2010, Sunday Morning Music

Sweden's Ulrika Olund walks the thin line between singer/songwriter and pop/country with her latest single, "Sick And Tired", due out on August 4, 2010. It's a decent single with real pop sensibility and country accoutrements about extricating oneself from an unhealthy relationship. Olund's voice is enjoyable, with a solid sound in her lower register that turns into a breathy sound as her voice ascends the scale. Olund backs up "Sick And Tired" with a re-recording of a fan favorite, "Crust Of The Icy River", a song explaining her defenses and distance to a would-be friend or lover. Both songs are well-written, and Olund's voice is offbeat but highly enjoyable. With this combination it hopefully won't be long before Olund graces us with a full-length album.

Rating: 4 Stars (Out of 5)
