Good Girls Speak Up
Swedish pop artist EVE compels young women to stand up for themselves through a powerful vocal performance that evokes associations to SIA and hints of Adele. But the Swedish approach to production and songwriting bears a closer resemblance to performers like Molly Sandén.
EVE might’ve grown up in a small town, but she was surrounded by big ideas from the start. In a society where strong female role models like Therese Lindgren or Linnéa Claeson have been getting considerable visibility, EVE knows there’s a social responsibility to being an artist.
“The only thing I regret from my high school days is that I didn’t put a group of guys in their place.”, she explains. “They didn’t show any consideration for people surrounding them, especially not for women.”
As is common in Swedish musical education, EVE started singing and playing the guitar from an early age. “But I got more serious during middle school”, she tells us. EVE has moved from an acoustic singer/songwriter style to the current combination of pop and R&B that feels right to her.
EVE signed with Rexius Records 2017. Her upcoming single “Better” encourages you to put yourself first if you’re in a relationship that isn’t doing you any good.
Produced by Sebastian Ekstrand, “Better” will be available as a digital single later in February.
