I didn’t plan to make a compilation with just Swedish women. I just stumbled on all these good tunes, either by Swedish solo artistas or by Swedish bands with a female lead singer.
Here is some very important information : )
- Little Dragon are currently supporting Gorillaz on tour. The band’s Swedish-Japanese singer Yukimi Nagano appears on Gorillaz’s album Plastic Beach and has previously worked with Swedish group Koop, José González and Hird.
- One of the band members in CirKus is Neneh Cherry.
- Malin Dahlström is the singer of both Niki and the Dove and Disdishdance.
- Fever Ray is the solo project of Karin Dreijer from the Knife. The new single Mercy Street is a Peter Gabriel cover.
- Titiyo is Neneh Cherry’s half-sister.
