Chill, Sweden. Even for just like a second, there's other nations trying to get some shine in the pop game y'know? The newest starlet from the pop graceland to bless us with her presence goes by the name of Marlene ∞, presumably pronounced "Marlene Forever", but it's hard to ever know for sure with those crazy Swedefolk. Debut single "Bon Voyage" is a temperamental ocean of salty-smooth brilliance, as her mood bubbles to the surface atop buoyant synth flourishes and her silky come-hither vocals lock you into a sensual R&B beat. Think Yadi meets Kate Boy, or just the perfect better-late-than-never addition to your summer soundtrack.
