ffpSweden have brought us many great things. Where would we be without our meatballs and Alfred Nobel? My student flat would be bare if it wasn’t for Ikea furniture. But best of all: Swedish music. Gone are the days of associating Swedish music with ABBA and other dodgy Eurovision-style tunes. I keep discovering new bands then discovering that they are Swedish. I’m really quite obsessed.

In particular, my love for Swedish pop music knows no bounds.
First Floor Power are no exception. They made music between 2000 and 2004, and vocalists Jenny Wilson and Karl Jonas Winqvist are currently pursuing side projects, but with talk of a new FFP album in the pipeline.

I find their music quite hard to define. Jenny’s vocals are terribly distinctive, and at times it’s heavily guitar-based but interspersed with bleeps that sound as if they have come directly from a 90’s console game. I think it’s probably best to just listen.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
