NEW ARTIST FINDS: NICOLE SABOUNE
The sole descriptor on emerging artist Nicole Sabouné's Youtube page describes the lovely Swedish crooner as an 'Artrat.' This isn't a misnomer, or something lost in translation. Despite the quite pretty looks of the early-twenties Swede, rat seems like an adequate signifier for the music she's creating. There's something raw and unnerving about the post-punk songs with a pop-slant she seems to effortlessly churn out. And like coming into contact with an actual rat, real or metaphorical, the experience leaves you flustered and shaken up for sometime afterwards.
Nicole Sabouné aims to provoke and disarm you. She's a rat, and she's here to fuck some shit up, whether you like it or not.
NICOLE SABOUNÉ "CONQUER OR SUFFER"
Sabouné got a rather inauspicious start to her career. She was a finalist on the Swedish television version of The Voice. Although perhaps being a finalist on some TV karaoke show is a much bigger break when you come from a country whose population is less than 10 Million.
