Hello Saferide

With 50 plays, Swedish singer songwriter Hello Saferide (her parents probably prefer Annika Norlin) was last weeks most played artist at FTC Headquarters. With her simple but effective guitarplay and a voice you immediately fall in love with, her album "Introducing Hello Saferide" feels like a cool breeze on a hot summer night. It's a perfect mix between uptempo songs and some more laid back tunes. The song that will grab your attention first will probably be "My best friend" with an insanely infectiously catchy chorus ("Damn I wish I was a Lesbian so I could fall in love with you" - never thought you would sing that out loud, huh? Well, think again!). However, with every listen you'll discover more gems on the album. Watch the colourful video for "If I Don’t Write This Song, someone I love will die", which probably is my favourite song on the album.

So put of your shoes, lie your feet on the table, kick back and let the delicate indiepop songs of Hello Saferide refill your batteries.

Lily Allen?

Nah...Lily Allen heeft ook zonnige zomerliedjes (ik vind dat nr LDN wel een cool nr trouwens), maar heeft allemaal ska/reggae achtige dingetjes en een beat. Dit is meer gitaar en handclaps...teksten van Hello Saferide vind ik ook sterker.
