"Från Och Med Du" - Oskar Linnros.
For me (and many others) the most significant breakthrough of a solo artist in Sweden this year was that of Oskar Linnros - closely followed by his ex-Snook colleague Daniel Adams-Ray. It was that very rare occasion, post-band-break-up, when the solo careers actually meant something.
This song, co-written by Linnros and Fibes, Oh Fibes! frontman Christian Olsson, combines retro-soul and modern pop/rock influences, and is one of the year's freshest and most enduring hits.
Over the summer it turned Oskar Linnros into a superstar in his native country; it's already won him awards at this year's Rockbjörnen, and don't be surprised if he takes many more awards home before the awards season is over. As long as he leaves some for my beloved Salem to win, of course :)
