At the risk of sounding like one of the tools in an Astrid Swan song, thereâ€™s nothing more alluring than a complex female musician. Of course, the Finnish singer/songwriter is all too aware of this, as the title alone of â€œThey Need You If They Think You Love Themâ€ makes clear. So, perhaps I think she loves me, or perhaps I just like the sharp wit of her lyrics and the tender knowing of her vocals. Think Tori Amos in moments of levity or Aimee Mann at the piano. Itâ€™s something lovely, if heartbreaking, if totally intoxicating.

Her voice reminds me a lot of the artist Sarah Slean- but a lot more upbeat.
Not bad! Definitely got me interested in listening to more.
