    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.

    FSC#123 - May 2019

    FELIX SANDMAN
    IMPRINT




    PRESENTATION:

    For this May edition, Sweden is sending the 20-year old singer and actor Felix Sandman with the well produced, fresh and catchy urban-inspired Pop entry Imprint, the second single released from the singer's 2018- solo debut album EMOTIONS.

    For fans of the Swedish national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest; Melodifestivalen, Sandman might be best remembered for his runner-up entry Every Single Day from the 2018-edition, which would also become his first, and so far only, chart-topper on the official Swedish Singles charts. The song was later on followed up by the 2018- stand-alone single Tror du att han bryr sig? (Do You Think He Cares?), a duet between Sandman and the winner of Melodifestivalen 2018 and Swedish entrant to the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 Benjamin Ingrosso, which charted in the top. 10 on the Swedish Singles charts.

    Sandman started out as part of the boyband trio FO&O back in 2013, and together with fellow members Oscar Enestad and Omar Rudberg, the group came to release two studio albums and also managed to qualify to the finals of Melodifestivalen 2017 with the entry Gotta Thing About You before the trio broke-up late that same year.

    Sandman can currently be seen playing one of the lead characters in the first Swedish Netflix original series titled Quicksand [swe: Störst av allt (Biggest of All)], and he also just recently released his first single taken from his upcoming follow-up solo album.

    Tungevaag & Raaban
    (feat. Luana Kiara)

    Bad Boy




    PRESENTATION:

    Summer has finally arrived (on the Northern hemisphere that is) and to get into the right summertime groove, Sweden is sending the catchy and modern dancehall-vibed-EDM-bop Bad Boy by the Swedish-Norwegian DJ/producer EDM act Tungevaag & Raaban with vocals by Swedish/Gambian singer and newcomer Luana Kiara.

    The duo consists of 32-year old Swedish DJ/Producer Robbin Raaban Söderlund and 25-year old Norwegian DJ/Producer Martin Tungevaag.

    Martin Tungevaag debuted in 2014 with the solo single Wicked Wonderland, which became a top. 5 hit in both Sweden and Norway as well as charting in some other countries.

    As a duo, they released their debut single Samsara, back in 2015, that became a chart hit in the Nordic countries, it's been then followed up by various singles with their latest top. 10 being All for Love released in 2018, later that year they also got a nomination for the MTV European Music Awards in the category Best Norwegian act.

    Re: FSC Sweden

    Another flop result for Sweden unfortunately, I know that "urban-leaning" entries tend to not be too popular with the FSC crowd but #26 really!? I expected at least a bit better... Oh well... hopefully we can turn the trend around in July...

    Thank you to all that voted for the Swedish entry in FSC#124 - June 2019 !

    FSC#125 - July 2019

    Molly Sandén
    Det bästa kanske inte hänt än




    After achieving Sweden's first victory in the FSC 7.5 years ago with the entry Spread a Little Light, singer Molly Sandén is back in the contest for the second time with her brand new single Det bästa kanske inte hänt än (The Best May Not Have Happened Yet). This catchy uptempo Swedish-language Pop song, which incorporates subtle club vibes, is the second single released from Sandén's fourth studio album (titled the same as this entry) and lyrically takes on the topic of moving on from a relationship that isn't working any longer.

    Sandén's first rise to fame came through her participation in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2006 at the age of 14 where she ended up third with the entry Det finaste någon kan få (The Prettiest Anyone Could Get), which remains Sweden's best position in the contest that Sweden withdrew from in 2015 and has yet to come back to. Sandén's younger sisters Frida and Mimmi also entered the contest the following editions.

    In 2009 Sandén qualified to the finals of the Swedish selection to the Eurovision Song Contest; Melodifestivalen with the entry Så vill stjärnorna (So Want the Stars), which was followed by the release of her debut album Samma himmel (Same Heaven) in the same year. In 2012 Sandén entered the selection again and ended up fifth in the final with the entry Why Am I Crying which became her first single to chart within the top. 10 on the official Swedish Singles Chart. In 2012 she also released her follow-up studio album, and so far only English language full album, Unchained which managed to top the Swedish albums chart. Sandén released the EP Like No One's Watching in 2015 which included the 2014 release Freak as well as the single Phoenix. In 2016 Sandén entered Melodifestivalen for a third time with the entry Youniverse which also managed to qualify her to the finals as well as giving her a second top. 10 single.

    In 2017 Sandén came back to the Swedish language with a more matured style and urban-oriented sound with the singles Rygg mot rygg (Back Against Back) and Utan dig (Without You) which later on were followed by her third album release Större (Larger) in 2018 and the single Sand.

    FSC#126 - August 2019

    NEIKED
    (feat. Miriam Bryant)

    How Did I Find You




    PRESENTATION:

    For this August edition, we're seeing yet another comeback for Sweden with music producer and songwriter Victor Rådström aka NEIKED and his longtime collaborator and childhood friend the singer-songwriter Miriam Bryant. Bryant ended up second in the FSC exactly six years ago back in August 2013 with her breakthrough track Push Play, which was produced by Rådström. The duo would continue to work on Bryant's solo career, with Rådström producing tracks for the singer's debut album as well as following English language releases including the 2016 single Black Car, which is Bryant's most successful track chartwise to date, charting in the top.3 on the Official Swedish Singles chart.

    Parallel to working on Bryant's solo releases, Rådström started his own solo project NEIKED in 2015 and achieved some international success with his 2016 single Sexual, which peaked within the top. 5 in markets like the UK and Australia.

    On this month's entry, Bryant is serving lead vocals as a featured singer for Rådström's solo project and it's the third single taken from Rådström's debut album the 2019 Best of Hard Drive. The song can be described as a melodic and warm midtempo Scandinavian-styled electro-Pop track.

    Re: FSC Sweden

    Haven't been logged in for a while so a little late, as for the results in the last edition, I will not say much about it, but I am thinking twice whether it's worth investing in this any longer...

    Regardless...

    Thank you to the few of you that supported the Swedish entry in this edition !
