It’s in Swedish (obviously), and it’s a remix of a song called ‘Stockholm’ which got huge over in Sweden by Jonathan Johansson.
Amanda Mair has been causing a bit of a storm on the web for a few months. This seems to be the first video from her. It’s cute.
Haunting, cold beats from Sweden. Check out here.
One very, very strange video. But did you expect any less from Miike Snow? Exciting stuff!
Fun Swedish electropop. Check out here.
Swedish indie pop. The Slytest, consisting of young Swedes Dan Axelsson and Simon Larsson has had a fascination for American music since birth. The band manage to put some local colour to the recording with what in Sweden is considered “the Gothenburg sound” – indie choirs and vibrant distorted guitar melody lines in the vein of Broder Daniel and Håkan Hellström – two of Sweden’s major underground pop stars. Check out here.
Swedish pop. This would fit in to Eurovision nicely. Check out here.
I think one of the reasons Swedes do music so well is that they take the best out of genres and improve on them ever so slightly. I mean, this song is country. But it sounds poppy at the same time, but it’s still really country. And I like that. Check out First Aid Kit if you like.
The work behind this newcomer is pretty mind blowing. We’re talking about input on this sound from Peter Bjorn and John, and Lykke Li and Miike Snow. That’s amazing. It’s the sort of beat that oozes coolness without trying at all. Check out here.
Swedish retro pop. Keep her away from hammers. Check out here.
This is one of those songs that makes you think you can take on the world and come out winning. Whether you end up succeeding is another matter, but this is done with two Swedish pop superpowers and is worth having on your iTunes.
Beautifully life-affirming music from a super talented Swedish newbie. So happy to have discovered this. Check out here.
I love Ansiktet, even though they bust their vibes in Swedish which can be a bit problematic at times. The video is a bit out there but the song’s pretty awesome.
Courtesy of one of the most amazing Scandi blogs around, this will be my wake up alarm for the next week. A blend of the finest Robyn and Whitney Houston. Come on peeps, smile… Life’s good!
Sounds American right? Well, it isn’t. It’s Swedish. His real name is Ted Mauritz Svensson and his sound moves swiftly round the edges of 70’s americana and Randy Newman-esque singer/songwriter moods. It’s big sounding and heartfelt. Check out here.
