Sweden seems to have a never-ending factory line of exquisite pop talents.

Honestly, sometimes it feels as though the Nordic nation has some top secret formula, one that can turn ordinary folks into blinding pop stars overnight.

'High On Me' is the first of four singles that will form the backbone of a new EP, a scorching statement from the enigmatic newcomer.
