The gloomy Swede, starved for sunlight, is a cliché, she insisted. It takes resolve not to mention that the cover photograph for Ms. Ternheim’s American debut, “Halfway to Five Points” (Decca), features the singer-songwriter with her head bowed, standing beneath a sky of blackening clouds. But we’ve only just met.

“Some part of it is true, of course,” she said. “I don’t know why, but all Swedish folk music has that melancholy to it. Also, there’s a lot of melody to Swedish pop music while not as much rhythm. There’s definitely a color to the Nordic music. We don’t surprise people. It’s like, I’m the Swedish singer-songwriter girl from Sweden in the north, singing sad melancholic songs!” [NY Sun]

Like her tour-mates Lykke Li and El Perro Del Mar, Anna Ternheim is from Sweden, but she recently moved to NYC. Last night the aforementioned tour hit Bowery Ballroom in Anna’s new hometown (May 8, 2008). More pictures of Anna playing that show below….
