Swedish Indie Pop fresh from the Post

staphanobell2.jpgEmail actually. Imagine my surprise to get a nice treat in my inbox - fresh new songs! Sometimes you half expect to get some crappy samples from somebody, but this was anything but.

I know, I said I rounded up my Swedish indie themed posts with Hello Saferide... but then Friska Viljor's "Monday" kept popping into my head, so I wrote about that, and then I get this email from Staphan O' Bell....

Ok, so what if a large chunk of my entries are from Swedish artists - with Swedish music, what's not to like? Sweden is after all, the land where Abba came from. ;)

"I'm Ok" is a sweet sweet song about...you guessed it - being ok. Actually, 'ok' isn't the right word - more like 'alright' (you'll get it once you listen to it).  The song begins as an easy listening acoustic guitar love song about a boy who gets silly nervous when he's in front of the object of his affections, that he needs to tell her that - yeah, he's alright - he's just crazy in love (which explains why he's acting weird most of the time).

The best thing about this song is that it swells into a beautiful finale of guitars and drums, which sort of reminds me of Glen Hansard's songs from the movie "Once". And of course, how could I not mention that it's another perfect use of my favorite percussion instrument - the glockenspiel...or probably something that sounds like it. Didn't the song just sound so nice with it?
