Our September playlist is dedicated to the Nordic countries. After paying tribute to London, New York and California in our latest months, now it’s time for the cold lands of the north of Europe: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. We have made a selection of 20 songs that will help us to understand their singular identity, through the vision of 20 singers and bands from around the world, including among others Beach House, The Kinks, Of Montreal, Blonde Redhead or Muse; and also some nordic bands such as The Sugarcubes.

Nordic countries have much in common in their way of life, history, culture and social structure. In fact, they do not form a separate entity, but they co-operate in the Nordic Council. They all share a signature design style so cool nowadays, betting for minimalism and natural materials.

Enjoy our selection while you imagine you’re walking through the Norwegian forests, sailing the Swedish lakes or visiting some of the most important museums in their cities.
