Title - ‘Right Up Your Face’ (Curb)
Artist - Sofia Loell
Sweden has already given us a ton of great pop music (Cardigans, Cinnamon, Eggstone, etc.), but there is still room for more as the debut album by rising star Sofia Loell shows. At 21 years of age she already is proving herself to be a formidable songwriter capable of creating an entire album's worth of very catchy tunes. Although her production is very "today", she owes little to the Brittany or Destiny's Child school of tired, R&B based music that's the glut of the airwaves. Instead, she provides jangly, up-tempo pop with just enough of a rock & roll feel to keep you awake on the road, along with some interesting chord changes to keep things interesting. If you want a collection of songs that sounds like somebody's greatest hits album this is it !
