Did you know that Sweden is the world’s third biggest exporter of popular music ? The Swedes seem to have a knack for producing sweet, melodic pop with a slight melancholic edge, as a quick listen to Katie Goes To Tokyo will confirm. KGTT is Kathrine Bergström, a Swedish singer/songwriter who has been in bands since she was 16, notably Backfish and The Wilson Hospital. Last year she released her second album My Naked Heart, this year she goes not to Tokyo, but to Canada to play at their Music Week festival, which is certainly a long way from Sweden. In fact you could say it’s a long way from anywhere, unless of course you live there. Or near it. Ahem, anyway that’s my rather cumbersome way of introducing Katie Goes To Tokyo’s song ‘ A Long Way From Anywhere,’ which you can listen to below.
