Combining the powers of Swedish and Australian pop rock, Tiny Fighter deliver a sultry sound with innocence and fury. The duo of Tim Spelman & Therese Karlsson aims to pull on your heartstrings one moment, only to ring your neck in the next. Their upcoming EP Tell Me (in stores April 26th) plays well with both sides of this spectrum, hitting it hard with the title track and "Where Are You Now" before gently bringing everything down with the finale "Katrina." With over a month before Tell Me drops, Tiny Fighter has taken to the reins of this week's Shameless Tuesdays!
Here's what Tim Spelman has to say about this week's Scandinavian-influenced playlist:
This playlist nicely captures my journey deeper into Swedish music, and Scandinavian artists more broadly, after leaving my home in Melbourne and moving half way around the world to start a new life in Sweden. Growing up in Australia my exposure to Swedish music was pretty much limited to ABBA and Eurovision. But after three years living in Scandinavia I’ve grown to appreciate the diversity and richness in the local music – from its’ famous death and black metal scenes to contemporary story tellers like Silvana Imam, Adna and Silja Sol.
There is an otherness to the music, perhaps a product of its geography being on the periphery, removed from the center of Europe. Not unlike Australia where its geographic remoteness tends to encourage a do-it-yourself, independent attitude to the creation and performance to music. And you can I think really hear this attitude, this uniqueness in bands such as Vulkano and Heilung. Exploring a country’s otherwise hidden music is just like getting falling in love with music for the first time all over again. Each of the tracks on this playlist captures a little, unexpected, joyous moment of discovery.
