Sweden has long been reputed as the home of many outstanding musicians and musical groups such as ABBA and Roxette. Now it is presenting the world with another excellent alternative band, The Cardigans. Their music is infused by a variety of music genres like Pop, Latin, Jazz and Rock. The instantly recognizable voice of the band’s lead singer Nina Persson, sweet and pure, gives all their beautiful tracks a lovely bittersweetness. The single Lovefool included in the soundtrack of the 1996 film Romeo + Juliet became the Cardigans' first hit worldwide, topped the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart, peaked at #2 on the UK Singles Chart, and earned the band a world class fame.
