What’s this? Swedish pop chap THEOZ is back with the follow-up to his Melodifestivalen 2022 SMASH ‘Som Du Vill’. New single and video ‘Painkiller’.
What’s it like? He might be a young ‘un, but he’s sensible enough to know not to tamper with a formula which has given him one of the biggest Swedish-language streaming hits of 2022 so far. The title is of course in English, but it’s another Swedish pop tune from THEOZ, with a feel-good vibe that exudes summer from near-enough every note. Helped along of course by a sun-drenched music video.
Written by? Alex Papaconstantinou, Anderz Wrethov and Elin Wrethov.
More from THEOZ? There can’t have been many 16 year olds who have released a Greatest Hits compilation, but THEOZ is nothing if not a trendsetter.
You can find ‘Painkiller’ on our Best New Pop playlist.
