Nina Söderquist & Björn Skifs – Goodbye – Review

Nina SöderquistNina Söderquist & Björn Skifs are two singers that have a new single, “Goodbye”. On my initial listen I thought this may be a cover, but after researching I’m convinced it’s an original. Nina and Bjorn have teamed up to create a great duet! Let me tell you about it.

Nina Söderquist & Björn Skifs – Goodbye

Initially like I said, the song sounded familiar. However, I realized that was my feeling because it’s just that good of a song! Nina and Björn’s voices work so well together. I believe they have a huge hit on their hands here. Now, looking more into the duo I realized that they are pop stars in their own right, in Sweden. A quick check of her Wikipedia page tells a cool story of a young lady starting out in Sweden, winning a singing competition and then being catapulted into national stardom.

Björn Skifs also has an impressive past. He formed his first musical group in 1962. After that act split in 1969, Skifs went on to form a new band, Blåblus, which had a #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1974 with a cover of “Hooked on a Feeling“. This was the first time ever any Swedes had come that far in America. See his Wikipedia for more info as well.

So, let me say that this is not normally the genre of music I listen to. I probably wouldn’t even make this tune my first choice when listening to music, however, these two are the epitome of professional singers and they are undoubtedly some of the best in the game. I would love to see them make a big splash over in America. The Swedes have been putting out some of the best music on this planet for decades now and I love it when they have huge successes over here.

When a song is this good it’s hard to find things to critique. I would normally say something about the vocals not being perfect or maybe something about the mix, but with this tune I don’t have to. It is perfect for what it is, a potential HUGE hit. I’m sure the duo has found great feedback with this song over in Sweden, now it’s time to instigate a full US takeover! If you’re not into the ballad thing, I caught a few live performances of the two singers online and let me tell you, they are amazing!

I’m curious to know what you think about this song. I encourage you to get in touch with Nina Söderquist & Björn Skifs over social media and let them know what YOU think! Let them know you heard them here on Indie Music Plus first. As always, thank you for reading and supporting indie music!
