Foreign Slippers - "It All Starts Now"

If You Like: Ben Howard, Angus & Julia Stone, James Vincent McMorrow
Sweden is hot right now. The indie music scene in Scandinavia is simply bursting with young talent, quite a bit of it falling into the indie pop wheelhouse. This track, from Sweden/London-based Foreign Slippers, is a classic mellow-to-anthemic tune that is nothing but charming. Aside from fantastic vocals by frontwoman Gabi Froden, and a rousing melody, the percussion sets everything off, keeping the song driving along. And it includes handclapping which is always a good sign. The track is off their new album, Farewell To The Old Ghosts, which you can buy right here. Enjoy!
