Discovery: ORKID

Sweden’s ORKID, aka Matilda Melin, creates melodic, ground pop music.

By Graeme Smith

Definitely on today’s pop music pulse, ORKID’s new track Wasted is a tale of social anxiousness and excess. It’s told through Matilda’s smooth and soulful voice and some heavy percussion.

Matilda is 21 years old has relocated from Sweden’s far north to Stockholm. It feels she is right on the cusp of catching the world’s attention if Wasted is anything to go by. You can have a listen for yourself below, or via Spotify.
