    Äventyr




    Sweden is starting off the new year on an uplifting note with the catchy, melodic and sympathetic dream house track Äventyr (Adventure) by 18-year old up-and-coming DJ music producer Teo Ludomir Wiik in a collaboration with 25-year old singer/songwriter Josef Johansson. The charming uptempo track, which incorporates dream house with Swedish vispop, comes with a nice message of self-exploration and is an optimistic way to start the new year.

    Ludomir debuted already at the age of 15 back in 2015 with the track Ready for Your Love, and has later on followed up with singles like Kiss and Tell [2016] and Closing In [2017]. The single Äventyr, and this month's entry for Sweden, is Ludomir's first official release in Swedish and was released back in January 2018. Apart from waiting for his commercial breakthrough, Ludomir has also done remixes for other artists.

    Josef Johansson is another up-and-coming young artist yet achieving his breakthrough. To fans of the Swedish selection for the Eurovision Song Contest; Melodifestivalen, some might recall his entry Hela natten (The Whole Night) from the 2014 selection.

    You've got many top 10s in 2018, it's a great result, but I think you deserve even more, so I hope you'll finally win this year!

    Re: FSC Sweden

    As for the Swedish results this month, not the best start of the new year I must admit, but hey at least I tried something else (although usually taking risks isn't paying off for me), still though... it managed to end up on the "left" side of the board, always a bit bittersweet though to know a couple of positions were "won" due to non-voting of some jurors.... still could be worse ....

    Thank you to all that voted for the Swedish entry in the FSC#119 - January 2019 edition

    FSC#120 - February 2019

    Vargas & Lagola
    Roads




    PRESENTATION:

    For this edition, Sweden is keeping it uptempo but going in another direction than the previous month with the songwriting, production and artist duo of Vincent Pontare (Vargas) and Salem al Fakir (Lagola) and the catchy, subtlety country-inspired "Scandinavian-styled", Indie-Pop song "Roads". The song, released about a year ago, managed to peak within the top. 20 on the Swedish official singles chart and became a local radio hit throughout 2018.

    This is the second time for Salem al Fakir as an artist in the FSC, the first being in FSC#23 - January 2011 with the entry "I'm So Happy". Technically, it's not the first time for the duo in the FSC either though since they were among the songwriters responsible for the following FSC entries:
    FSC#29 - July 201 : Swedish House Mafia - ""Save the World"
    FSC#56 - October 2013 : Avicii - "Hey Brother"
    FSC#57 - November 2013 : Veronica Maggio - "Sergels torg"
    FSC#77 - July 2015 : Axwell Λ Ingrosso - "On My Way"
    FSC#89 - July 2016 : Veronica Maggio - "Vi mot världen"
    FSC#105 - November 2017 : Axwell Λ Ingrosso - "More Than You Know"

    For fans of Melodifestivalen, the Swedish pre-selection for the Eurovision Song Contest, Salem al Fakir is mostly known for his 2010-entry "Keep On Walking", that ended up second in the selection and is his commercially most successful solo single to date in Sweden, peaking in the top. 3 on the Official Swedish Singles Chart. The entry was later on followed up in the same year by al Fakirs third, and so far latest, solo album (following his 2007-debut and 2009-follow up). After the solo career, al Fakir would be more focused on songwriting for other acts and projects, as well as lending his vocals on some of those, which he did for Avicii's 2012- "Silhouettes" as well as for the single "You Make Me" from the following year amongst other songs.

    Vincent Pontare on the other hand has never taken part in the selection, but is the son of Melodifestivalen-veteran Roger Pontare who entered the selection as an artist on five occasions, winning two of those representing Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1994 and in 2000. Vincent himself started his own musical career back in 2006 and managed two top. 10 solo singles in Sweden back in 2007 with the songs "Don't Hate On Me" and "Miss Blue", taken from his first solo album. Pontare followed up the debut album in 2011, but just like Al Fakir he has been mostly focused on songwriting for various other acts prior debuting with Vargas & Lagola in 2017.

    FSC#121 - March 2019

    Anna Leone
    If You Only




    PRESENTATION:

    For this March edition, Sweden is slowing down the tempo again with the beautiful, dreamy and peaceful acoustic Lana del Rey-esque Anglo-Folk-Pop-inspired ballad If You Only, performed by up-and-coming singer-songwriter Anna Leone, stage and short name used by 24-year old Leone Anabelle Lancelot. The song is taken from the singer's 2018 debut EP Wandered Away which also includes the previous 2017 releases My Soul I and I Never Really.

    FSC#122 - April 2019

    Smith & Thell
    (feat. Swedish Jam Factory)

    Forgive Me Friend




    PRESENTATION:

    This edition marks Sweden's 100th entry to the FSC (my 73rd) and to celebrate that we are sending the catchy Swedish-styled Country-folk-Indie-Pop track Forgive Me Friend performed by the duo Smith & Thell. The duo, consisting of singer/songwriters Maria Jane Smith and Victor Thell, debuted back in 2012 with the EDM-Pop track Kill It With Love, which would be followed by some stand-alone singles as well as songwriting and producing credits for other artists including the Melodifestivalen entries Groupie (performed by the duo Samir & Victor in the 2015 contest) and Human (performed by Victor Zia in the 2016 edition).

    The duo's fourth single, and first single taken from their 2017 debut album Soulprints, titled Statue (The Pills Song) got released in 2015, but except for some commercial success working for other artists, the duo would have their own breakthrough as a music act with Forgive Me Friend in 2018, which also was the first release from their EP Telephone Wires released in November of that year. The song became a radio hit in Sweden and peaked within the top. 10 on the Official Swedish Singles Charts and has lately started to gain interest internationally being added to radio playlists outside of Sweden and just recently debuted in the top.40 on the US Billboard Alternative chart.
