It doesn't sound much to ask for; some wistful music for when the
weather outside is setting a grey tone. But when I thought about it
most of the Swedish music I enjoy is usually warm and sunny pop, much
too full of cheerful vitality if I'm in the mood not to be. So what's
the solution? If its songs with introspective lyrics, a haunting voice
and a good selection of minor chords, then I will probably reach for
the album 'Halfway To Fivepoints' by Anna Ternheim every time. Even
the cover is cloudy.
Beyond that I had to dig a little deeper, and found that sunnier
Swedish bands have their rainy moments too. Occasionally.
