Trans-European Indie Express

Stop #15: Sweden

The Trans-European Indie Express comes to a halt in its home country, Sweden!

After a very interesting interrailing experience through the alternative landscape of European music, it’s time to dig into the depths of the Swedish music scene. Siri, the native Swede, and Anna, the German, look back at the influences that shaped the modern Swedish alternative sound. And what would Sweden be without their famous pop music? Obviously, the bull in the china shop has to be discussed but no worries, the train is not stopping at this genre for too long and will also take you through some poetry excursions.

All songs featured in the episode, plus many more that we couldn't fit into the hour, are available in our curated playlist:

The train arrives this Saturday at 4pm in its hometown K103! Can't make it? Jump on board at any time via our Mixcloud:

All aboard the Trans-European Indie Express! This show was created as Europe went into its second covid lockdown in the fall of 2020, leaving small, local bands without gigs and festivals - and leaving us without the possibility to travel. Therefore, we will attempt to travel through Europe as digital music tourists, exploring different countries by tuning in to their local, independent music scene and discover artists that are largely unknown outside of their home countries.


Anna Niere, Siri Christiansen och Iris Brinkman.
