Norwegian acoustic pop. Check out here.
This has to be the one of the best songs I’ve heard probably all year- its so intense and epic and thrilling all at the same time. English born and Swedish raised Miriam Bryant, 21, found herself secretly visiting the remains of her family’s burnt down house a couple of years ago. Singing herself thrilled by the moody environment, and reminiscing a childhood with constant presence of music, this was when and where she realized she would spend the rest of her life expressing herself through singing and performing.
Over the next years Miriam will have to overcome her aerophobia when being welcomed to the bigger stages.
With childhood friend Victor Rådström, 20, writer & producer, Miriam is now releasing her debut single, “Finders, Keepers”. Check out here.
Soft, dark Norwegian electro. Check out here.
I’ve been meaning to feature Jonas Oakland for some time, so I guess now’s as good a time as any! Keeping the proof that Swedes so electropop best, this song goes crazy when the bridge kicks in. Check out here.
A reworking by Oslo-based Todd Terje.
A French re-working of Robyn’s ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ by Marie-Mai. It’s nice.
Swedish electro newcomer Soso has released her entire debut album for all to hear. I’d have paid to get this album so I’m crazy happy she’s decided to give it away for free. Download it and listen to it because it is amazing.
Swedish indie mixed with some slow disco and broody folk. Check out here.
Fibes, Oh Fibes! (one of my absolute favourite bands coming out of Sweden) are releasing their new record later in the month. This is one of the singles.
You’ve probably heard this track already- it’s pretty huge right now. Icelandic folk/pop. Check out here.
What a grim day it is in London today! Hopefully this new track from one of my favourite electropop newcomers will cheer things up. April 20th is the date of the release of their debut album on Riot Factory.
Swedish dance pop. Check out here.
Don’t play this video if you’ve just had your dinner!
This is filthy but I love it and it’s sure to go viral quicker than you can say ‘gonorrhea’. It’s by Norwegian duo ‘The Products’. Check out here.
This Swedish synth is so airy and nice to listen to. Check out here.
I love it when a song takes you by surprise half way through. This is a dancey track by Michael Feiner. With horns! I know it doesn’t sound that exciting but it’s so much fun!
Scandinavian soul. If you’re in London you can catch her residency at the Native Tongue in Barbican. Check out here.
She seems to make songs that inspire some pretty incredible reworkings, doesn’t she? This one is by one of my favourite up and coming kids from Sweden, Andreas Moe.
