Säkert! – På Engelska

I’ve had a big soft spot for Swedish Hello Saferide since the debut album (I really loved it back then, most likely still do), but I haven’t really given a chance for Annika Norlin’s another moniker Säkert! . Mostly because the lyrics are a big part of her charm and my Swedish skills are nowadays pretty non-existent. It looks like there are other similar kind of prejudiced pricks out there, because now Säkert! songs have been released with English lyrics. The album entitled På Engelska is now out and available and the new music video is called Can I.

And how could I not post Hello Saferide’s Anna video, if I write about Annika Norlin. This is so cruel and brutal. It breaks my romantic heart every time. It’s from the second Hello Saferide album that was produced by pop guru Andreas Mattsson.

Hello Saferide – Anna

After that Laura Marling video I ended up watching other favourite videos from the past few years. One of them was Anna by Hello Saferide. I’ve seen that at least 50 times and even though I perfectly well know what will happen, the ending still makes more damage to my romantic heart than watching a Jean-Claude Van Damme movie marathon. This is just so brutal and heartbreaking..

..but I love it. Swedish Hello Saferide (aka Annika Norlin) is obviously extremely highly recommended artist. Anna is from her second album More Modern Short Stories from Hello Saferide that was released back in 2008. I prefer the debut though, but both albums are wonderful.
