Frida Sundemo — “A Million Years”

Comparisons to Robyn and Lykke Li come immediately with Sweden’s Frida Sundemo, the latest in a long line of icy Nordic songbirds making perfect electropop tunes with a sublime mix of euphoria and melancholy. The pulsating beat and pristine production provide an excellent frame for that chorus melody — “Oh, I could stay for a million years!” she sings — and it’s no surprise that Sundemo has been touring with Charli XCX, since they share a glorious pop sensibility, captured wonderfully on this, “A Million Years,” for which Sundemo just unveiled a video. Sweden remains on top.
