Lolita-voiced Anna Järvinen was born in Finland, but lives in Stockholm and sings in Swedish. Not French, no. But her music (third album is coming up) is very much inspired by Gainsbourg and the like, especially when you hear the gorgeous new single Lilla Anna. That church organ, that fat bass, those strings, the drumbreak – it’s a wonderful take on Je t’aime…, Slogan and other late 60s Serge. But it’s not a gimmick (ok, maybe the bird is), this is genuinely sexy. Video here.
