Sweden has been having an indie-pop renaissance in the last few years, from Icona Pop’s explosion on the airwaves to Say Lou Lou’s sold out show at Baby’s All Right a mere few weeks ago. In many ways this makes sense – this is the nation that produced ABBA, after all.
Swedish songwriter LÈON appears to be next in line. She just released her debut single “Tired of Talking,” and needless to say we’re impressed. It’s almost unimaginable that this is her first release. The folk-tinged pop number (featuring snaps and whistles) provides the perfect backdrop for her crisp, flexible vocals.
Keep your eyes peeled for this one.
