What’s this? New music from Sweden’s Jasmine Kara – her first release where she’s singing in her native Swedish. This is her new single ‘Du Var För Bra’.
What does that mean? You Were Too Good.
What’s it like? A big and bold pop chorus is paired with Jasmine’s trademark retro-soul stylings for an impactful listen. Or rather, multiple listens – which we absolutely know we’ll be having with this one.
What does Jasmine say? “Many people probably recognise themselves in that idea of pushing away the person who tries to come close. The fear of exposing oneself, being left behind, making mistakes and perhaps even hurting the person who actually only wishes you well can become too overwhelming. So overwhelming that you flee instead of daring to stay and allow yourself to get closer.”
Written by? Jasmine herself, along with Peter Kvint and Albin Lee Meldau.
You can find ‘Du Var För Bra’ on our Best New Pop playlist.
