Sweden's Ola Svensson has been through many guises, many facets of his life in music.

Steeped in classic pop and blessed with an incredible voice, his current project Brother Leo might well be his most impressive yet.

Playing a Clash Live event earlier in the year he unveiled song after song, part of that wonderful Swedish pop lineage that moves from ABBA to Robyn and beyond.

Ultra-catchy new single 'Shine' is out now, with award-winning film maker Leopold helping craft the unique visual.

Shot in and around La Muralla Roja, a postmodern apartment complex on Spain’s south coast, the striking colours bely a hidden darkness.

"The idea for this video was to illustrate a colourful trip into the subconsciousness - the feeling of being trapped and lost inside your own self-made prison and longing to find the way out,” explains Brother Leo.

 “I was in a pretty dark place when this song came to life. The writing process turned out to be some kind of turning point for me, both personally and creatively. To some this will probably be another happy tune, but for me it means something totally different”.

Tune in now.
