Joyous delights from the mighty Seinabo Sey. The new album comes out next month.
Seinabo Sey slays Backstreet Boys. Beautiful Swedish talent!
Sweden’s finest – Seinabo Sey. Single’s out on 4th September.
Seinabo will release her debut album in the summer of 2015.
Seinabo’s ‘Younger’ has already hit the iTunes top-10 charts in over ten countries, and certified four times platinum in Norway and three times platinum in native Sweden.
It comes out May 10th.
Another year of music comes to an end, and with it comes the annual Random List. I’ve listened to the good, the bad, and everything in between. As usual, Alfitude bucks the trend with blog ‘best of’ posts to come up with a random list of highlights from the past twelve months. For previous years, check this out.
Biggest Trend Of The Year
Best Use Of Drugs In Lyrics
The bulk of Tove Lo’s album involves songs about love, misunderstanding or heartbreak. All three of which are better understood via narcotics and general misdemeanours through her lyrics. In all fairness though, it’s done so well that it all seems to make sense in the end.
Best Song That Should Have Done Better
Best Use of Primary-School Instruments
This track from Made In Heights was perfectly ‘on-trend’ this year while still managing to sound super cute through using a bunch of sounds you probably haven’t heard since you were at school.
Most Epic Gig Of The Year
This was a tough one, but in retrospect, it has to be seeing Rag’N’Bone Man in London back in July. Big man, big voice, and an immense sound. I really hope 2015 is his year. Speaking of gigs, follow the Alfitude Instagram for pictures, if you like.
Funkiest Scandi Act Of The Year
Danish Scarlet Pleasure have long been a favourite of mine, and 2014 saw the release of an EP which I’ve listened to far more than I’d like to admit.
Happiest Yet Moodiest Song Of The Year
This song from T.O.L.D is one of my favourites this year. Only because it’s such a headf**k to listen to. It’s sad and dreary, but it’s happy and uplifting at the same time. It’s confusing and beautiful. Kinda like life. Deep…
Most Exciting Major Debut
Seinabo Sey. I can’t fault anything this new soul powerhouse is doing right now.
Best Song To Make Babies To
Huntar managed to come up with the sexiest song of the year (in my reckoning, anyway).
Hottest Scandi Act
Swede Snoh Aalegra made a big impact both across Eurpoean and American blogs this year with her unique mix of RnB and soul.
One To Watch
I’m 99% certain that Years & Years will be 2015’s biggest newbie. It’s as good as British pop gets right now.
This new video from Seinabo Sey is exactly as I managed it to be- stunning, dark and soulful. ‘Pistols At Dawn’ is taken from her debut EP ‘For Madeleine’. Release October 13 / October 21st (US) / November 17th (UK).
This lady always give me goose bumps!
Enjoy… Ahead of Seinabo’s debut EP ‘For Madeline’ out 13th October.
The only way to catch Seinabo Sey’s debut London show at the packed-out Notting Hill Arts Club was through winning tickets. I was lucky enough to go and listen to her breeze through some pretty impressive, epic pop songs with a stunning voice. One of the most exciting Swedish talents to emerge this year.
