King of Little Sweden is a Scandipop collective. Not too long ago, they released an appealing pop tune, entitled, “Dave Is Online,” a song about emotional disconnection in digital times.
King of Little Sweden – “Dave Is Online” single
“This is a song about online intimacy. Nowadays, we can get swamped by so many messages that we sometimes end up neglecting the ones that we really ought to answer.” – King of Little Sweden explained
‘Dave Is Online’ contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with Romano, ELIO, and Conan Gray fans. The likable tune possesses vibrant instrumentation flavored with a contemporary pop vibration. Furthermore, King of Little Sweden brainstormed the first ideas of “Dave Is Online” at the piano while humming some melodies along the way. Then they produced different versions back and forth between Huskvarna, Verbier, and Stockholm.
“Are you still with her? This has to end.”
“The lyrics were inspired by self-observation. Always being online: texting, chatting, and arranging with other friends, actually missing out on the moment. No hidden message or moral – just an observation of how things are today.” – King of Little Sweden explained
In the snowy wonderland of Verbier, Switzerland, a very artistic family and their friends started recording music together as King of Little Sweden in the spring of 2014. The project was born in a studio with a reclusive mystique located 1675 meters above the sea, owned by their producer/manager and uncle, Sven du Gay.
The sound of King of Little Sweden has evolved from instrumental folk-pop (think The Head and the Heart) to R&B-inspired pop. Their new sound draws inspiration from vocalists like SZA and Kehlani. But pop acts like Lauv and Olivia Rodrigo are somewhere in the mix, too. Also, King of Little Sweden has been earning a name in the Swedish indie-pop scene since 2014.
“Dave Is Online” single
“In a crowded place but still alone. All the caller IDs show up unknown. It’s getting darker but the screen lights up my room. My pillow still has the scent of your perfume. No response but you’re online. Dave, I know that you’re not mine. All I hear is desperate sighing, might be a fool but I’m trying. Might be a fool but there’s a fine line. Let me in just this last time.” – lyrics
