Baskery’s ‘The NoNo’ is your Folk Alliance International Song of the Day

The International Folk Alliance Conference & Winter Music Camp comes to KC February 19-23. To get you geared up for the folk blowout, every day we’re posting a song we like by one of the event’s showcase artists.

There’s something about sibling bands. Instruments and voices seem slightly more in sync when it’s a trio of blood relatives collaborating. To that end, Baskery does not disappoint. Swedish sisters Greta, Stella and Sunniva Bondesson have cultivated a sound that is decidedly roots-rock – not quite what you’d imagine when you think of original music out of Sweden but no less entertaining. The Bondesson women know their way around stringed instruments, with Greta on banjo, Stella on bass and Sunniva on guitar, and they make good use of a kick drum, too. 

Baskery’s newest single, “The NoNo,” is off the upcoming EP Little Wild Life. It’s a little more electric than usual, which isn’t a bad thing.
