Sweden wins pt.2 – Hello Saferide

I didn’t expect to find such a sweet piece of music on the Immergut festival as my predicted highlights Sometree and The Soundtrack of our lives seemed to be the only two bands worthwhile (at least for me) but there she was – committed to every single note and line of her music, Annika Norlin who – together with half a dozen Swedish companions – is Hello Saferide and creates cute songs that are somewhere between the less artsy Regina Spector songs and a more experimental Amy McDonalds.
Especially the cheeky, yet emotional songwriting is so charming that you can’t help but smile when you listen to the lyrics.
And seeing her live is a treat because Annika is one of those unique characters that really live their songs on stage.
