Who knew I had such a thing for Swedish pop

The bet-they’d-be-amazing-in-concert Miike Snow will be playing tonight at the Biltmore in Vancouver (next time they come they’ll be playing a much bigger venue. I’d bet my entire broach collection on it).

They’re Swedish. And I love them. And it made me realize how many other Swedish artists I love.


Like the beautiful, stylish, and so-much-fun-to-see-live Lykke Li. And the Shout Out Louds, whose song Tonight I Have to Leave It remixed by the Russian Futurists is one of the most played songs on my iTunes.

Then there’s the wacky and wonderful Tough Alliance whose song Someone Special makes me want to dance dance daaaaance, the Swedish Paul Simon-esque sound of Suburban Kids with Biblical Names and the bright, pretty Marching Band which sounds like spring breezes and colourful sunsets.

Found the image of Lykke Li here.

    I didn’t! If I weren’t desperately trying to get everything in order so I could fly away to Turkey, I so would have.

    […] Is happy road-trippin’ music. Plus, they’re Swedish. And because I have a thing for Swedish pop, I love them. Listen to them here. Cover art from their MySpace page. […]
