Indie Babe of the Week It’s already 10 days into May and I haven’t introduced you to a new Swedish electro-pop starlet. Don’t worry I’m here to fix that as Suvi has arrived on my headphones.

Gigantic drum patterns draw us in to this mysterious world where we can almost hear animal roars from every direction. Her soaring pleas for love are well noted and the chorus is towering and memorable enough to be [...]

Her handclap-filled new single “Out Of It” gives us a real quirky Kimbra vibe, and is too good not to rise up to every single chart in this world of ours.
