1. Loreen – I’m In It With You
The 2012 Eurovision winner is still making lush, melodramatic pop music and this might be her best song since Euphoria.
2. NHGT – Redefine
The debut single from NGHT (Jens Andersson and Mikael Jepson, formerly of The Ark) conjures up New Order and early techno but has a snappy pop sensibility too.
3. The Royal Concept
Fashion This Stockholm band are clearly familiar with the work of the Rolling Stones and Reef. A big, big chorus too.
4. Elin Rigby – A Friend With A Car
Just as the nights shorten and autumn approaches, here comes the perfect soundtrack for long summer days. Elin Rigby’s timing may be suspect but this dreamy, electro-pop still shimmers beautifully.
5. John De Sohn – Rush ft Violet Days
Adrenalised electronic dance with just a hint of raw pop edge. This’ll get you going in the mornings.
6. Leon – Nobody Cares
Tove Lo’s almost alarmingly confessional pop has infected this deceptively breezy slice of summer pop – the chorus will soon lodge in your head like a giant hook.
7. Noonie Bao – Pyramids
Noonie Bao, one of Sweden’s more interesting pop stars, here channels Sweden’s most famous pop stars – Pyramids has a golden chorus that rings with the vocal clarity of Abba.
8. Cape Lion – Oh Girl
This has been the month of great choruses – Cape Lion offer us another gigantic earworm.
