Joining the Swedish legacy of cle verly crafted pop music, Johnny Låga’s self – made debut
stays in your ear for hours. It breathes both confidence and f ragility as the powerfu l synths

– You know, I’m probably as fascinated sitting by the piano now as when I was eight years old.
The magic of i t is that it doesn’t get boring even for a day to keep exploring the m
