While plenty of American music is played on the radio here in Sweden, there aren't enough Swedish songs on the radio in America (though Jose Gonzalez is half Swedish). Of course we all know ABBA, but there's a lot of great music being made in Sweden right now that you probably don't know about. Here are two Swedish singers I'm loving right now.
The first song, by Melissa Horn, is in Swedish, though it's one of those songs where the words don't really matter--just listen to the music and you know everything she's saying. It's called "Jag saknar dig mindre och mindre," which means "I miss you less and less." (I don't think she really does). Check out Melissa Horn's website here, where you can find more links to her music. You can find all her music on Spotify here.
The second is in English, so no explanations necessary. Read more about Amanda Nair here, and find her on Spotify here.
What are your top two songs right now? Let me know in the comments below if you enjoy hearing new songs here, and I'll do more Swedish music posts in the future.

I don't know if I have a "top two" right now, but I've been loving this one lately. https://open.spotify.com/track/3tkQWyvZNVftVFlEVvZ539
