The Local's resident music guru Paul Connolly is back with a selection of his favourite Swedish tracks to see you through December and into 2015. No Christmas songs. No Swedish Idol pop tracks. Enjoy!
1. Nicky - Wake Up
 
Woah, where did that voice come from? Wee Nicky is only 19 but that creaky baritone could be compared to Johnny Cash. Keep an eye (and an ear) out for this chap.
 
 
2. IIIII (Lines) - People (featuring Adele Kosman)
 
A brilliant debut single from a brand new Stockholm band.
 
 
3. Linnea Olsson - Breaking and Shaking
 
Linnea was asked to support Peter Gabriel on his current tour. This gorgeous, deceptively infectious, slice of orchestral pop suggests why she caught the veteran electro star's ear.
 
 
4. Tove Lo - Talking Body
 
Ms Lo is back with a fantastically filthy but deeply romantic single from her debut Queen of The Clouds album, which has reached a remarkable no.14 in the US, as well as performing well in Scandinavia.
 
 

5. Hurricane Love - Nowhere To Go
 
Galloping folk-rock with hints of Ed Sheeran and Mumford and Sons - but don’t let that put you off if that sounds too mainstream. This is unique.
