January has been a pretty stunning month for new Scandi music, so here’s our roundup of the best of the month. The Soundcloud list is pretty comprehensive, but criminally Zhala’s brilliant Aerobic Lambada is absent from YouTube.
So we’ve compiled a handy compendium of the best songs from October.
Firstly a YouTube playlist…
Or on Soundcloud if your prefer…
Of course a few tracks are missing from each, namely the wonderful Kill J who aren’t on either.
It can be hard work keeping up with Swedish pop ladies but it’s worth putting in the effort because they really do know their way around a stonking tune. Sirena has released a couple of good tracks before and today sees the release of Chemicals, which reminds us of fellow Swedes Marlene and Tove Lo, with a dash of Sia’s dramatics thrown in for good measure.
