Linn Willner reigns as pop supreme in her single, Throne.

Sweden-hailing singer-songwriter, Linn Willner, showed the world how empowering pop is done with her latest dark pop hit, Throne. With the empowering lyrics and the sharp hell-hath-no-fury vocals, Throne is just as visceral as HBO’s Game of Thrones, but it is so much more than an angsty provocative track.

Just as with the original Riot Grrrl bands in the 90s, you instantly get a sense that the inspiration came from a deep and intimate place rather than through some twee inclination to better the world, and it is all the more hard-hitting for it. If you have ever been in a place where you’ve cursed your naivety and bounced back with scathing vengeance, this song is for you regardless of usual sonic taste.

While most artists struggle to find their authentic voice in the blossoming stages of their career, Linn Willner found that expressive confidence and boldness right from the start. We can’t get enough of her emotion-driven dark pop. Once the world gets a glimpse of her untamed passion and polished sound, we’re pretty sure they won’t be able to look away either.

Check out Linn Willner on Spotify and Instagram.

I Am Who I Wanna Be: Sublime Swedish singer-songwriter Elviise is simply sensational on ‘Lucid Dream’

After dazzling us with the beautifully classy ‘Whispers In The Night‘, Elviise took time to meditate deeply and realized that she was indeed headed in the right direction even though it felt like she was going backwards, on her exquisitely heavenly creation that is her third single called ‘Lucid Dream‘.

Elvira Johansson aka Elviise, is a highly inspiring indie pop/rock artist who is based in beautiful Stockholm, Sweden. She make dreamy music that is so soothingly meaningful, as her honest message takes you to a place which is so relevant, and helps you to believe in yourself again.

The lyrics tell the story how Elviise reality felt like a dream and for a long time, she didn’t know how to wake up from it. All the lies, the people who stabbed her back, the ones that left her to fight the battle alone. The process to keep trusting yourself and that you’re doing the right thing when everyone else is leaving.” ~ Elviise

Powered by the indie label Hearts In Horizon which she started with her supportive partner Robin Nordström during the start of this dreadful pandemic, Elviise has emerged from the darkness of her youth to really take charge of her destiny. You feel the ever-increasing strength that flows through her excellent vocals, to help others out there that have also suffered with low confidence and those feelings of wanting to harm yourself. It feels like she sings for more than herself, her piercing eyes are so honest and her gorgeous vocals only seek to uplift – as she floats majestically like a Queen over all the smoggy self-doubt – and to a much happier place in our hearts.

When life brings such unreal events, experiences, injustices and you hope that someone will pinch you in the arm so you can wake up from the unreal dream. It’s only then, when you think that everything is hopeless, that you can experience the magical moment when you realize that you actually have the control to change your reality. Change mindset, change gears. Fight back.” ~ Elviise

Lucid Dream‘ from the wonderful Västerås, Sweden-born, Stockholm, Sweden-based indie pop/rock artist Elviise, is a truly remarkable single from a graceful artist who is headed towards her prime.
