Sweden: Honungsvägen - "Istid" (feat. Jonas Bergsten) – beehype – Best Music from Around the World

Honungsvägen

It isn’t for sure that magic happens when brilliant people start work together. Things could fall apart and what looks like a great idea could end up in something completely different.

Well, that’s not the case when the mastermind Henrik Oja gathered the best that northern Sweden could offer in pop music.

Honungsvägen (Honey way) is a street in Umeå witch is located on the same latitude as places like Iceland, Greenland and Alaska. So maybe it’s not a coincidence that the first single is called “Istid” (Ice Age) even though the lyrics cover far more interesting things than just geological changes.

The person behind the lyrics is Annika Norlin, which some of you recognize as Hello Saferide and her way to connect personal affairs with reflections about the society is always remarkable.

The vocals belong to Christina Karlsson and Jonas Bergsten and the latter one actually released one of the best albums in 2015. Jonas’ sister Kajsa is also a part of this super group.

If you like Honungsvägen you have much more to discover when it comes to the pop scene in the northern parts of Sweden, besides the one I’ve mention you have bands like Katohjärta, Vapnet and INVSN.
