Karin StrömKarin Ström has managed to achieve quite a lot in her life. She has written two books, “Bensin” (“Gasoline”) and “Feber” (“Fever”), worked as a journalist on Svenska Dagbladet, Elle and a few more and also been dumped by a record label!
I don’t know if it’s because of these experiences or if it’s due to the fact that she has been living in London and Los Angeles or simply that she is just fantastic, that makes the music sound exciting, vibrant and very international.

It’s like a mixture of Irma Schultz and New Order, or Eva Dahlgren and Pet shop boys or…, ah it sounds like the panning synth melodies goes like pin balls in my head with Karin’s soft, but distinct voice caressing the music.

Karin has made a remix together with the Malmö guy Miki, , the captain, which is performed by Miki with his typical, kind of aristocratic skånska (dialect in Skåne, in the south of Sweden)

Listen and download the music:
