Linn Koch-Emmery – Hologram Love

Rock isnโ€™t the first genre that springs to mind when thinking of Swedish music. Sweden (and Norway, for that matter) are mostly referred to as โ€˜pop walhallaโ€™. While Linn Koch-Emmeryโ€™s music sure has pop melodies, most people would call it indie-rock.

Sheโ€™s a Stockholm-based musician, who also has German and British roots. Her short and sharp songs reference โ€˜90s rock music, but sound very contemporary to me. Her most recent tunes, especially, feel catchy and slick, in part thanks to added synths. They add a freshness to her music, that goes down well with her killer choruses.

Emmery explains: โ€œI wanted to figure out how indie should sound in 2020. Itโ€™s about writing your own history, rather than rewriting someone elseโ€™s and applying it to yourself.โ€

Her new single Hologram Love is another simple, direct song thatโ€™s easy to love. A feel-good track that precedes her debut album, due out next year.
