It seems this week is going to be dominated by the two Swedish singers whom I declared were the best unsigned talent in that very richly talented country. Earlier in the week I mentioned the “new” song from De Montevert and now Hybris has signed and is releasing the “new” single from Big Fox. Here is my exact quote for what the future should hold for Big Fox from a post dated April 20, 2010.
It’s been 4 days since my last post. But I hope to have made up for my absence with the results from my scouring of the web for brilliant Swedish pop. I think I’ve found it in a piano playing singer-songwriter who goes by the name of Big Fox (aka Charlotta Perers). She accomplishes her sound mostly by herself playing all the instruments, and doing the production/arranging of the songs.
You would think that “Saturday” would be an uptempo pop song about partying from the title, but instead is a slightly melancholy (yet positive) song about being home alone on a Saturday night. Charlotta admits to being influenced by Feist, Regina Spektor, Frida Hyvönen, Jenny Wilson and Ane Brun but her sound stands out on its own at the same time. She is currently unsigned but I wouldn’t expect that to last long on the basis of the songs uploaded to her MySpace profile.
What is new is the video. It premiered just the other day on Swedish television on PSL. I linked to that site’s video instead of YouTube since they had the premier. But first here’s Big Fox’s new single “Saturday”.
