Melissa Horn at Malmöfestivalen, Malmö 2012

Hannes and I went to a concert tonight with Swedish singer/songwriter Melissa Horn at Malmöfestivalen, the yearly festival in Malmö. Melissa Horn has been one of the most popular artists in Sweden since the release of her latest album, Innan jag kände dig (Before I knew you), and I’ve been wanting to see her for a long time. Her songs are all in Swedish, but I’d say she’s kind of like a Swedish female version of Damien Rice (give her a chance if you’re into music like that).

I noticed that the majority of the audience was female. Most male spectators seemed to be brought-along boyfriends, looking rather bored and out-of-place.
At last year’s Malmöfestival, I saw NOFX live. If I remember correctly, the situation was pretty much reversed there. At that concert, it was mostly guys and some unenthusiastic girlfriends who had tagged along.

    Hej hej,

    I listened a couple of her songs on youtube and I find her music very emotional. Like it! I wish I would understand what her songs are about :)

    Anyway, I just came home from Sweden; I fell in love with your countryside. We are missing some rain here is Slovenia :/ In Sweden everything is much greener. But I knew that of course… I will definitely come back.
