“Wish we could switch up the roles.”
Spanning genre, gender, and decade, Sweden is so much more than home to the creators of Ikea and Spotify. It’s a nation of pop-music prodigies!
These hits from the past five years are already classics, so you’d better get used to them. We’ll still be hearing all of them 20 years from now.
Feelings are weird.
The music industry is all like, “Gotta Catch ‘Em All!”
Whether you’re distraught, angry, or feeling sorta numb, these are the records that are there for you when you need it most. Some will cheer you up, and others will just let you wallow.

Short, up and bleached. Who can pull it off the best?
