It's an undeniable fact that Europe is taking over the pop and rock scenes. I've written about this several times in the past couple months, and while the U.K. is the usual suspect for this invasion (that Coldplay and Mumford & Sons are the two biggest rock bands in the world speaks to this), the new staging ground for America's European pop invasion is a different part of The Continent: Scandinavia.
One of the hottest pop stars of the year is Sweden's Tove Lo
. Releasing one hot single after another, she's ruling the charts and the festival circuit this summer. And our friends at Slurpee have a great profile not just on Sweden's hottest export but the resurgence of Scandinavian pop in general. It's a must-read for anyone interested in the state of world music today.
