The salient points
- Erik Hassle has ginger hair and is from Sweden.
- He attended the same musical secondary school as Robyn, which is probably where he learned to make heartbreaking pop songs that you can (sort of) dance to.
- This, for example, is a lovely slice of maudlin emopop.
- His Swedish debut album 'Hassle' was released in the UK as 'Pieces' and is brilliant in either country.
- In 2010 he released a covers EP which included this rather lovely take on Rihanna's 'Russian Roulette'.
- 'Mariefred Sessions' was a six-track EP released in 2011 and featured collaborations with a Swedish indie band.
- We know. We know. We're sure he'll pull it back around.
