Despite releasing their debut album in 2021, Mormor, Dina Ögon’s latest single marks the first time we discovered them. Although it’s also clear those who uncovered them before us were as impressed as us! The band’s self-titled debut album (released in 2022) on vinyl is completely sold out 1 & 2 pressing), and show tickets sell out in minutes.
Well, we’re here now and the Swedish-sung single, Mormor (Grandma), is the perfect introduction especially if you seek seductive new sounds from Scandinavia. Dina Ögon are exceptional. We’ve not heard a band deliver Swedish soul with a warm harmonic touch since the pioneering 70s soul/pop The Gimmicks.
In an increasingly divided, sceptical world, the band’s music shines with an ethereal glow of peace, love and optimism. It’s the same magic dust ABBA sprinkled.
Self-described as – the bastard love child of Eric B. & Rakim, Fleetwood Mac, Selda Bağcan and Ted Gär, Dina Ögon’s style draws on the essence of sunshine free-spirits. Sweden’s melodic phonetics seems to enhance the warm and sensitive tone of the song’s lyrics too. We encourage you to pay close attention to the chords and strings are some of the softest and well crafted we’ve heard producing divine listening.
At the time of writing, the band members’ names remain elusive, so their music will do the talking, and it’s a language everyone can understand.
We also strongly suggest diving into their previous releases. Discover Tombola 94, Mellanrum and the faultless instrumental Efter Natten. All essentials for your playlist.
