Argjentina celebrates in pure R&B style

The Albanian-Danish singer Argjentina released her second single 'Gør Det For Mig' (Do It For Me) this month with a new music video. Shot as the singer celebrated her 21st birthday the video is packed with a lot of Argentina's friends partying to her latest track.

Strange as it might seem, Swedish people don’t cross the road unless the green man at the crossing is lit. Even if they see no cars for miles in any direction, they’ll wait patiently until they’re told it’s safe to cross.

Most people dress the same, eat at the most ‘hip’ places and listen to the same popular artists. It’s one of the many idiosyncrasies, often conservative, that I discovered in Sweden.

The single on the new album from Swedish electro/pop trio Artymove sums up the band’s response to their country’s national reserve: “Fuck That!”

That’s why I love them.
