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.”
