Only a couple of years back one could come up with plenty of clichés about Scandinavian music. Well, some people might still do. Yes, it’s all quite moody and melancholic; undeniable gloomy. And if not the other extremes are surely metal and charts pop in the finest tradition of ROXETTE and ABBA. But of course you do know better than this. Quite obviously the current music scene of the Nordic countries has far more to offer than outmoded stereotypes. Other than that you can spot a broad range of genres, artists and musical ideas when you focus your view on Europe’s north. And more and more the rest of the world seems to notice what’s going on in this musical microcosm. England might be the home country of pop music in terms of historical relevance but the Scandinavian countries are currently the place to look first when it comes to exciting new artists and a diversified selection of high quality music from various fields. nbhap
