Yung Lean – Red Bottom Sky

Loreen – RIDE
The Swedish artist Loreen just shared her official video for ‘RIDE’! The eponymous album was already released in November, five years after the release of her debut album.
Amanda Mair – Empty Blockings
Swedish songstress Amanda Mair released her ‘To The Moon’ EP last month and now one of our favourite tracks from the EP got a stunning video! The clip for ‘Empty Blockings’ was shot at Tylösand on the Swedish west coast, Amanda Mair says: “In the music video (…) I wanted to show the feeling of the continuously searchers desperation. The every day hope for running away from anxiety and sorrow but the faith is to weak and puts you in a circle of running and running until you don’t know what you’re running away from.”
Kasbo – Snow In Gothenburg
The 22-year-old Gothenburg-based Swede Kasbo also known as Carl Garsbo, released a new song called ‘Snow In Gothenburg’ on the 12th of December. Kasbo is planning a North American tour in Spring 2018 after touring with ODESZA. Check out his new song below!
Pandora Drive – Albino Heart
Panadora Drive is a new collaboration of Karin Park and the duo Thomas Knights and Nick Sheldon. Since yesterday their debut single ‘Albino Heart’ is out. The debut track is released with a brand new video and is part of their upcoming EP.
Emmecosta – Angry Eyes
After releasing their nocturnal ‘Velour’ EP in the summer, Italian / Swedish trio Emmecosta are back with their new single called ‘Angry Eyes’, which is a haunting reflection of seeing a woman’s angry eyes through a crowd of people. The single was released today in collaboration with Kitsuné and Icons Creating Evil Art.
HOLY – All These Worlds Are Yours
Sweden’s HOLY has just delivered a piece of pure psychedelic goodness. His new track ‘All These Worlds Are Yours’ – right off the upcoming sophomore album – is dreamy psych-ballad, soothing and puzzling at the same time. Hushed, pointedly fatigue vocals, innocent piano in the background, sunny 60s vibes…What is there not to like?
View – Leave a Comment (Short Film)
Finnish rapper View has dropped this badass short film called ‘Leave a Comment’ – it’s a seven-minute visual consisting of three snippets from his new eponymous album. View’s voice is as haunting as usual, and the movie definitely does the new record justice providing beautiful aesthetic pictures. Check it out – and leave a comment:
