swedish pop // singer-songwriter

Laleh’s album, Me and Simon (2009), shines with pure pop energy and good fun. There are no experimental edges for avant pop lovers, yet there are enough memorable melodies and clever hooks to keep your attention. Iranian-Swedish artist Laleh crafts vibrant pop songs, sweet lullabies and ballads, sung mostly in English with the occasional French and Persian (not to be confused with Arabic) ear candy. Laleh’s stand-out track and my personal favourite is “Simon Says”. With its lovely arrangements, subtle multi-layered vocals and playful lyrics, this one you will carry and hum for the rest of the day.

Strong melody and a somewhat naive quirkiness.

    Thank you for this song by Laleh. First time I heard her was in the Swedish film Solstorm (Sunstorm) that featured her wonderful song “Live Tomorrow”. Did not know she had a new CD this year.

    I love Laleh. She has a song called November that is just beautiful. Her last cd from 2012 is really good. She is one of my favorite Swedish singers. I buy all her cds from a Swedish company
