Club Bizarre got some attention from Berlin (that we missed)

“– Let’s take a trip back to the sweet 90’s.  SoLBLoMMa made a cover of the 90’s club hit ‘Club Bizarre’ and made it modern and fresh but with a melancholic feeling to it. Perfect for the weekend, yes!”

We are glad to see Solblomma on the Phoenix Magazine Spotify Playlist for June 2018.

7. SoLBLoMMa

Charles de Gaulle

“My old friend Neil Mason is a man who knows about music, he founded and edits the excellent Electronic Sound Magazine and has written for NME, Melody Maker and many others. When Neil raves about a new act, I always pay attention and am always rewarded. SoLBLoMMa (Swedish, by total coincidence) is a case in point. Like an immortal Instagram Pippi Långstrump, SoLBLoMMa has been sitting alone in Charles de Gaulle for a hundred years, just waiting for you to join her for coffee and fika, and she is so terribly lonely. ‘Charles de Gaulle’ is surreal and dream-like, but poignant and heartfelt at the same time. A four-minute masterpiece from an alternative universe.

Solblomma måste ändå vara Sveriges charmigaste artist.
Med sin egensinniga stil och röst, samt hennes enorma kärlek till tåg är det svårt att inte bli charmad av hennes låtar och videor. För ett tag sedan släppte sångerskan singeln Charles de Gaulle, där hon sjunger om att hon är ensam och strandsatt på den stora flygplatsen Charles de Gaulle – lite som Tom Hanks-karaktär i filmen The Terminal.

Låten släpps både i sin originalversion som singel och som en mer chillad och vacker remix i videon som går under det passande namnet Tax Free. Videon är förresten filmad på Stockholm-Arlanda och Prag-Václav Havels flygplats, så en bit ifrån den franska.

Lyssna och njut.

SoLBLoMMa – Charles de Gaulle 

Featured in the first Nordic Music Scene (March) Stockholm-based SoLBLoMMa, a unique performer with a unique vocal (although recently I detected a similarity with her compatriot Robyn) and a nice line in alternative sad ballads, returns with ‘Charles de Gaulle’. 

In it she uses the metaphor of the loneliness of the huge airport terminal for the “every man is an island” solitude of personal life in the social media-dominated 21st Century, asking anyone who passes by to “come and sit here next to me”…I’ve been here for a century” in a similar way indeed to what Tim Booth did on ‘Sit Down’. Ok, so it does not have the hymn-like qualities of that classic song but this idiosyncratic polymath has a long experience of many musical genres, a cult-like following and assuredly something to say.

Once famously described by a critic as “Think Depeche Mode booted out the back of a transit on a cold, dark winter’s night, think Lykke Li taken by the dark side, think Kylie with Winehouse’s problems, think Emilíana Torrini on 45, Björk dating Goldie … oh, hang on… well, then we begin to see something remotely resembling SoLBLoMMa she’s well worth a listen although her inherent quirkiness is not quite so apparent on this track.

Solblomma NEW song!

sticky

April 13th, 2018

Charles de Gaulle is the first international single in a year from Swedish pop princess SoLBLoMMa (a “one of a kind artist”, if there ever was one!) and follows last year´s single Still Happy, that spread her name to English bloggers (toomanyblogs, Gigsoup, God Is In The TV a.o.). The track will next month be released in a handful of exclusive remixes – for instance one by the Swedish music maverick Johan Vävare who moved to Thailand more than 20 years ago, and hasn’t been heard of since. A music video accompanying the single will soon be released.

SoLBLoMMa is colourful with an exceptional personal expression. Quirky, original and totally alone in her uniqueness in Sweden. The English music journalist Neil Mason (former NME) has described her like this in the Electronic Magazine: “Think Depeche Mode booted out the back of a transit on a cold, dark winter’s night, think Lykke Li taken by the darkside, think Kylie with Winehouse’s problems, think Emilliana Torrini on 45, Bjork dating Goldie… oh, hang on… well, then we begin to see something remotely resembling Solblomma. With eyes you could stand teacups on, she’s got something of the Cheryl Cole about her… only with a Katie Price makeover… at night… with doll’s clothes. Sounds original, check, looks original, check. You could file comfortably under the current 80s electro revival and no one would bat an eyelid.”

The Girl Under The New Moon

March 4th, 2018

You’ll be hard pressed to find a more oddball, quirky character in the music business than Stockholm-based SoLBloMMa (Sunflower in English, and her real name).  The philosophy graduate is a multi-tasker; she’s also a puppet master, a clown, a designer of online IQ games and a railway geek to rival Pete Waterman. Vocally it’s possible to detect something of Cyndi Lauper, Clare Grogan (Altered Images), Polly Scattergood and even a stoned Björk, as one critic dubbed her.

In a long career she’s been signed to EMI (she now has her own label), had chart success under a different name but has also busked her way around Europe, scored a Portuguese TV series, worked with leading jazz pianists and saxophonists and dabbled in everything from trip hop to death metal, gaining a cult following along the way. Her direction momentarily is increasingly electronic. Her public persona is a brave one to wear in a country where overt individuality frequently encourages a condescending response.

She writes quite thoughtful songs, sometimes with a slant on unrequited love but she’ll tackle any subject. This latest single is one of the few she’s recorded in her native language – most are in English – and a well known folk song there.

The next one – ‘Charles de Gaulle’, scheduled for release on 30th March, is completely different as she reprises the role of Tom Hanks in ‘The Terminal’. In typical SoLBloMMa style the supporting video was filmed not at the Paris airport but at Stockholm Arlanda and Prague airports.
