Staphan O’Bell – “Five Years Went Fast”

Staphan O'Bell

And I end this day in a great, uplifting way with a new sparkling pop track from Staphan O’Bell. It’s been six years since I wrote about his solo material, but last year I had the pleasure to hear one of the best ballads of 2013 when he sang a duet with Noras Falcon. Now he’s working an a new album again and “Five Years Went Fast” is the first taste from it, a quite pleasant taste.

Now I’m going on an excursion across the Atlantic Ocean, to the Canadian singer Maggie Szabo, now living in LA. Her latest single “Tidal Waves and Hurricanes” is a real soulpop pearl for a song where she in full shows what a great singer she is and what a wonderful voice she has. She owns this song.

Johan Fredriksson

Here are two songs from Johan Fredriksson, who is currently working on his debut album. The first song, “Can’t Seem to Let Me Go” is a countrypop-vibing, catchy story while the second one, “All Alone”, is a pop ballad with some obvious Mark Knopler influences.

Vandernite – “Day of Days”

October 23, 2014 at 1:45 pm


Vandernite is a band created by Jonas Hofvander, former member of The True. A few years ago his father was diagnosed with terminal cancer and passed away. Jonas started writing songs to get through this and continued doing so the following years. He started the band Vandernite and the songs he had written became a story that follows his mourning process and form the album “The Death of a Loved One”. Their plans is to release the album later this year, but already in Spring four of the songs were released on the EP “Day of Days”.

It’s a finely tuned, beautiful melancholy where the music reminds me of ballads from Alan Parsons project, in the harmonies, in the melodies and to some extent in the arrangements. Here are two of the songs, where Jonas writes that the title track was written during several years on his father’s birthdays and on holidays when the grief felt the strongest.

Dandan – “Secrets”

October 22, 2014 at 4:35 pm


You may have seen Dandan before in the choir or shaking the tambourine behind artists like Simon Norrsveden, Fou de Toi and The Fiery Piano. In Spring he decided to take the lead himself and released the debut single “Secrets”, produced by no less than Faråker. More singles are scheduled to be released this year.
I also take the opportunity to add two remixes of the song, made by Thunberg and Dream Lake respectively. I have written about these two artists before when Thunberg made a remix of Dream Lake’s song “Try”.
