Who? You may well remember Josefine Myrberg from her time on Swedish Idol, or from her subsequent time as a popstar, if you were reading us back in 2017. She’s been quiet for a while, but now she’s back and launching a new pop career under a different moniker. Råsa!
What’s she out with? Her debut single ’97’. It’s a ludicrously infectious and instantly endearing tune. And it turns out that ’97’ is a much catchier lyric in Swedish than it is in English!
What does she say? “I often talk about my emotions and I am a very emotionally driven person, I cry almost every day, but I also laugh every day, too. There is no better feeling than sharing your experiences with others. I want to feel that feeling with those who listen to my music. In terms of genre, I would describe my music as Swedish pop that’s a bit wild or dirty. It does not have to be perfect, because life isn’t.”
Written by? Råsa herself, along with Mattias Jonsson and Fredrik Lundström.
You can find ’97’ on our Best New Pop playlist.
