Forming a new band around his songwriting, David Bilström’s alternative rock-folk blend continues to be injected into the David & Goliat project. David first had his sights on becoming an artist, but during his studies in England, he received a leftover guitar. Steadily, he added music into his expressive artistic abilities, with the Swedish songwriter going on to draw press acclaim and popular Swedish artists Nisse Hellberg (Wilmer X), Love Antell and Icona Pop seeking him out for opening slots on the stage.

Now returning in full force for the first time since 2021, David & Goliat has released ‘Nothing Comes From Nothing’. Filled with bounding guitar chords and a driven drum back beat, David creates a beautiful folk-rock illustration that dives into the impact of social media on your self-perception. As you dive deeper into his lyricism, you work your way through astute observations about the topic, politics and wider societal issues, and as you zoom out to the bigger picture you are immersed in glowing vocal harmonies, soaring guitar licks and an overall optimism. Packaging this heartfelt songwriting into a starry box makes ‘Nothing Comes From Nothing’ a wondrous listen.

David & Goliat share, “Our latest single is called ’Nothing Comes From Nothing’ and is a reflection of the zeitgeist we live in now. It’s an upbeat indie pop/rock song with country influences and a positive vibe. In contrast to the music, the lyrics comment on the role of social media today and the negative effects it has when based on lies and deception. Debates in politics and media are mostly about smear campaigns, witch hunts and trying to “win” the other side at all costs, rather than trying to build consensus and come up with something constructive together.

The cover art is a portrait of Baron von Munchhausen, also known as the ‘Liar Baron’, who was notorious for his tall tales and lies. All with the aim of making himself look better in the eyes of others. We all have the potential to create something good, but if there is nothing but empty lies at the core, sooner or later it will fall apart.
