The first time, I wrote about Hampus Carlsson, was back in 2014 when he released «Stjärnstoff och Damm» (Stardust and Dust) and now he has released his first album,«Är det det här som är livet?» (Is this, this one’s life?). Hampus sings in Swedish, so it’s time refresh your Swedish and take a listen. Personally I think, if he sung these songs in English, the charm and personality and meaning of the songs would be lost in translation.
My favourite song are «Sommarplågor» (Summer Plagues) and it was the first song I heard by Hampus back in 2013/2014 and since then I’ve been following him. The whole album has this positive vibe that makes you feel happy. You could call it a happy pill with only positive side effects. The album are reflecting Hampus colourful and positively personality – he is being him self – what you see, are what you are getting.
I recommend you take a listen to his album below, the album was release in the end of April this year. (You might get in a good mood after listening to this album).
