High Five: Cool Sweden

Each week Kinderling gives a HIGH FIVE to music, artists, albums and other stuff we think is awesome!

Swedish music isn't all about Abba, Avicii, and Roxette! So it's time to shine a light on the music and artists that keep Sweden cool. 

We love the shiny pop stars, but we also love the kooky kids that tread their own path. Folk, indie, electonica, dance - unique sounds from unique artists that sing and play with their own distinctive attitude and style.

For a listening experience outside the box, enjoy this High Five: Cool Sweden....
