Back to Sweden we go with yet another impressive artist. Feivel was previously a member of the band Skilla and a collaborator with other Swedish artists of fame. As a solo artist, she offers up gorgeous, sweeping single Already Standing, for which she just released a new music video. Already Standing is a song that carries enchanting Scandinavian qualities that I love so dearly, as well as a pastoral and bittersweet pop sound that shoots straight for the heart. Already Standing is Feivel’s first new song since an acclaimed self titled debut EP in 2014. She’ll be embarking on a tour of Sweden and the UK come March 31st.

German singer songwriter Stefany June resides in the Netherlands, and there’s certainly some of the other worldly enchantment that I’ve come to expect and so dearly love about music from that region on her entrancing, artful new single Beat That My Heart Plays. Hauntingly icy yet intensely flushed, Beat That My Heart Plays is a compelling, stirring first introduction for me to an artist with 2 EPs and a self titled debut already out. There’s a touch of Lykke Li like poignant folksiness to the dark and seductive gem. Stefany June’s smoky vocals are so incredibly mesmerizing.

While Swedish songstress Tove Lo seems to be taking over the world with her debut album, let’s not forget another Swedish Tove that has delighted our ears in the recent past. Tove Stryke’s music is more edgy and spunky compared to Tove Lo’s pop music, and its easy to hear the difference on latest single Borderline, the title track off an EP out November 23. Borderline is a very unique and busy song that bounces with a crunchy, dancehall flavored beat and some Lykke Li like enchanting Swedish pop flavors, all glazed over with a sugary sheen.

OFFICIAL VID: Lykke Li – Gunshot

July 15, 2014

Swedish songstress Lykke Li released her much anticipated new album I Never Learn earlier this summer, and it was such a heartbreaking, beautiful dark pop work of art. I can’t wait to watch her perform songs off the album live at Outside Lands Music Festival come August. Today, she released a video for one of the most upbeat tracks off the album, the enchanting Gunshot.

Back to updated oldies we go, and with this one, we go even further back than that last remix I shared of Next’s Too Close by D.VELOPED. Now, we go back to the early 90’s (wow, flashback memories), with a remix of Ace Of Base’s All She Wants. Oh, how I still do love Ace of Base and their endless bevy of infectious Swedish pop dance tunes. On this delicious remix, Los Angeles producer SNBRN teams up with newcomer KLATCH to create a tropical, chill house version of the tune. For SNBRN, the Ace of Base remix follows on the heels of a hugely popular summer house remix of Morgan Page’s In The Air from last month. Stream below.

OFFICIAL VID: Porter Robinson – Lionhearted ft. Urban Cone

That new Porter Robinson is simply delish, and the new music video begs another share. Not only is Lionhearted incredibly Passion Pit-esque catchy, it features Swedish indie pop band Urban Cone, who was an IHM favorite for quite some time. And… NOT only that, but this new clip for the song is pretty dang cool, too. It reminds me of Japanese film series Battle Royale (which came before Hunger Games, kids), but not as ugly and brutal, since in Porter Robinson’s world (pun intended), weapons make pretty, colorful, symmetric shapes, rather than maim and destroy. Porter Robinson’s debut album Worlds is out August 12 on Astralwerks, and it’s going to be MASSIVE.
