My new Swedish pop favourite – Anna Järvinen

For the last few weeks I’ve had the song “Lilla Anna” by the Finnish-Swedish singer, Anna Järvinen stuck in my head.

She’s a Finnish-born singer-songwriter who moved to Stockholm at a young age, according to her Swedish-language Wikipedia Entry.

The rest of the entry goes on to say she was in a pop group, “Granada” for a while, but has been a solo performer for about the last decade, and that her solo work has received a number of Swedish Grammy nominations.

The entry also mentions that she’s an art teacher on the island of Lidingö in Stockholm.

I guess what I like most about the song is the whole 60’s vibe to it, and that she looks seriously like a cross between Björk and Glenda Jackson.

  1. Hmmm…it’s okay but not quite my cup of tea. I guess we’ll never have to fight over who’s the biggest fan of what artist or group….you’re getting more eclectic as you get older!

  2. I have her debut, Jag fick feeling, and liked it as background music but it never really grabbed me. This, I enjoy a lot more – the spacey, 60s vibe you mentioned.
