Recorded in summer 2017 in his hometown Idrija and produced by Nikola Klavzar, The Unwanted Love Letter contains a whole pallete of feelings which one can experience in a breakup. Although it may seem at first that the album contains mostly sad balad songs, that’s not the case. Few folk-indie balads are accompanied by unexpected uplifting songs with catchy melodies and beats that call for clapping.
