Discovery: Bluephox

Bluephox is a Swedish pop artist whose sultry and fun-loving new track Gold caught my ear.

By Graeme Smith

Gold is brash drums, funky bass, guitar licks and charismatic vocals. It’s pop perfection that feels equal parts nostalgic and fresh. Just as the get the measure of it, a surprise electronic melody floats in. If the aim of pop music is to fill our lives with a little joy than Gold meets that goal and then some.

Bluephox is Stockholm-raised singer songwriter Philippa Magnusson. She grew up on a cocktail of Bob Dylan, Fleetwood Mac, Van Morrison and Sting and it’s evident in her music, especially the Fleetwood Mac influence. Check out Gold for yourself below.
