Perfect for the climate, “Dear Boys” addresses feminism, gender roles, and gun violence. “With the U.S. election and the rise of the far-right in Sweden, you have to speak up now more than ever. Women’s rights and equality have always been important to me,” Blom says. “My songs, even from when I was 8 or 9 years old were about that.”
What makes a pop star: the songs or the package? For women, the answer is unequivocally both, or so (mostly male) record executives have insisted since the dawn of the music industry. FELIN, a Swedish pop star whose songs and performance are created by Elin Blom, plays the boundaries of what makes a pop star — and what a pop star with a perfectly manicured image, no matter how edgy, can say.
Blom, who provides the voice, face, lyrics, and brainpower of FELIN, may be the first thing you see and the only thing you hear. But the visuals, the design, the photos, the elements that make up all pop stars come from a pool of artists and friends of Blom who help shape FELIN into something more than a singular figure.
