- Seven reasons to adore the autumn in Sweden (22 Sep 16)
- Seven ways to beat wet weather in Sweden (16 Sep 15)
1. Julia Adams - 0400am
Another glorious electroballad from our favourite new Swedish singer. Not quite as wonderful as her previous hit Allt Jag Nånsin but what it is?
2. LNKAY - Hurricane
The first single from Stockholm singer, Ellen Stokstad - bold, dramatic synth pop with a hint of R&B edge.
3. Frida Sundemo - Keep An Eye On Me
This deeply moving song debuted this week on US drama Grey's Anatomy - Sundemo just gets better and better.
4. Zara Larsson & MNEK - Never Forget You
Zara Larsson’s ascent continues with this infectious deep house collaboration with Grammy-nominated British producer and singer MNEK.
5. DNKL - Otherside
DNKL’s name is an abbreviation of ‘dunkel’, the German word for ‘dark’. Odd then that their music is gently euphoric and utterly gorgeous.
6. Elin Bergman - Gasoline Dream
Yet another terrific female Swedish singer - we are truly blessed here in this Nordic nation. Bergman is a little ‘tougher’ than the likes of Zara Larsson, Seinabo Sey or Julia Adams though.
7. Tove Lo - Moments
Quintessential Lo. Deeply personal, startlingly honest and utterly fantastic. Best pop star in the world right now.
8. Korallreven - Here In Iowa
The farewell single from this Swedish duo is a distillation of everything that made them so compelling - adventurous, deeply melodic and unpredictable. They’ll be missed.
9. Kastrup - Come And Get Me
Hugely romantic synth drama from Malmö duo who might just have enough oomph for global success.
10. Leon - Nobody Cares
On her second terrific single in three months, Leon crafts effortlessly breezy synth soul-pop.
