Band of the Day (11.2.10) Moto Boy

BOD (11.2.10) Motoboy

Moto Boy is Oskar Humlebo from the coastal town of Malmö, Sweden. He’s a “Swedish ice cream loving francophile musician with the ability to grow goosebumps on your body with my voice, melodies and romantic arrangements.” His voice is marvelous and it reminds me of Jeff Buckley a sprinkle of Rufus Wainwright and a splash of Wild Beasts. Not as bombastic as WB, but clearly in a league all by himself with the voice. If you want your heart ripped out and gently placed back into your chest, then Oskar is your man. His arrangements are sophisticated and heart-wrenching without taking away from his pop appeal. I find Moto Boy to be the high-brow choice for artist of the year. Thank you to our Nordic Music Excavator Bristian for uncovering this masterpiece.

“When My Heart is High” – Clearly the most POP worthy track from his new album Lost In The Call

“Nite Time is My Time” – With songwriting like this, you’d never guess that English is a second language.

“The Heart is a Rebel” – This is the song that will make him famous and it sounds like a guitar driven Keane
