I have been crushing on Nicole Saboné ever since I listened to her Under huden med Kakan Hermansson episode; not only does she make brilliant music, she’s studying to be an engineer at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. I love this combination, it is unexpected. Big fan of unexpected.
And also, I do love her look, the simplicity of it appeals to me greatly:
If you’re not familiar with Nicole, you might want to give her cover of Madonna’s Frozen a listen:
This crush was recently replaced by Caroline Hirons. Not because of her skincare expertise, as you might think.
It’s because of her recent rant on Instagram about the poor sound quality at a gig she attended. There are few things I like as much as women ranting about gigs, especially when it’s women you maybe wouldn’t expect to. As in, women who are not exactly involved in the music industry in some way.
Also, she gushed about Chris Isaak, who was the opening act of said gig:
Imagine how good the sound actually WAS IRL. This was just quickly grabbed on my iPhone. @chrisisaakandsilvertone showed @hallandoatesofficial how it’s done. Totally committed to the sound and the audience, it was immaculate and crystal clear. Hall & Oates and the #bluesfest2017 was easily the most disappointed I’ve been at a gig in years. If you’re going tomorrow make sure you’re there in time for Chris Isaak. And then consider going for a nice dinner somewhere. I hope they fix the sound for you. If this wasn’t so sublime to hear I’d be going full throttle for a refund. Anyway: ENJOY Mr Isaak. He rocks. And he gives a shit about his audience. 👌🏼💙 #bluesfest2017 #theO2
This is exactly what I have been looking for! I do hope she has more in store. I mean sure, skincare is all good and well, but this! Rants on music, it’s what I need. From women. There aren’t nearly enough.
Never mind that I am barely aware of either of the musicians she mentions (Wicked Game? Isn’t that a HIM song? Jk! I know it’s not, but in my world, if I talk about Wicked Game, it’s the HIM version, every time.), it’s just completely beside the point. Even if I might have been slightly more interested in a rant on the Linkin Park and Friends show. I feel it needs a rant. Just me?
I also loved her comment on how Chris Isaak knows how to not take himself seriously, while at the same time taking music seriously. Yesyes! That is exactly how we like it.
OK then. I think that’s enough already.
Love this lady.
