Scandinavian Soul Reviews Sunshine and Butterflies

Here is a lovely review of “Sunshine and Butterflies” from Scandinavian Soul. It warmed my heart :)

I guess you should always expect the unexpected from Swedish soul singer Klara Kazmi. We’ve heard her dramatic change in direction with her last sexy, “baby-making” release “Nice”. Now, her new single “Sunshine and Butterflies” takes yet another exciting turn.

This time, Klara brings her unique warmth and style in a southern American country sound, with sweet harmonies, banjo accompaniments by Sling Fingers, and the playful sounds of tongue smacking. (Not sure if it’s called that, but listen to the song and you’ll hear what I mean).

You’ll immediately picture white picket fences and rocking chairs, which, even if you are not a lover of country music, still demonstrates what Klara does best—makes you smile! It’s also no coincidence that one of her first releases was called “Smiiiiile”. So naturally, Klaras’ trademark, feel-good vibe radiates from this song, too. The catchy lyrics in the chorus exemplify this perfectly:

I have no worries on my mind, it feels so good to be alive! I look up on the sky, and I can’t see a single cloud! Yes it feels so good to be alive…. 


This time, Klara explains that her change in direction was inspired by seeing Stockholm in the sunshine.

“I’m amazed over the effect that summer has on people! Suddenly my whole hometown “Stockholm” is full of wonderful, happy and smiling people. ….. I’m celebrating this phenomenon by releasing a new single, a tribute to mother Earth and father Sun. A celebration of the magic of summer!”

By the way, I presume she means Stockholm, Alabama…

The production is, as always, excellent, and Klara and her producer, Marco Deb are clearly enjoying playing with music and sounds together. Clearly, though, a lot of work has gone into this. Amazingly, Klara has made the track “Sunshine and Butterflies” available for FREE!

”I’m giving it away for free, just like love and everything else that is good in life. This is my gift to all of you,” says Klara.

This is an invitation I urge you to accept, as Klara’s music and world are infectiously good.

Overall, I like this “country” track. However, it does beg the tantalizing question: what will Klara have in store for us next?

New Video Out Now !

Beloved Friends! The video to Sunshine and Butterflies is finished!
I’m so excited to share this with you. I hope you like it. A lot of hard work and fun has been put into this creation. I have been blessed to get to work with lovely people on this track and video.
I feel that I need to express my appreciation for all of them…

I am so grateful to the staff at Rosenhill in Ekerö, they allowed us to occupy there beautiful land for a day to record this video. This is an amazing place that is full of lovely people and good vibes.
Big thanks to the Director and Producer Mr. Pablo Fernandez he is the best of the best and he put a lot of heart into making this video. I also want to thank the Director of Photography Iga Mikler whose eye for beauty never seizes to amaze me. Non of this would have been possible without my “partner in fun” producer Marco Deb, he is a musical genius, and we always have so much fun creating together. Big thanks to my sweetheart SlingFingers, who played the wicked banjo on this track and helped me stay focused and happy throughout the filming. I also appreciate my kind father who helped by acting as nanny during the filming, he is the best father ever. But the biggest thank you goes to my little baby angel Mio, who stayed happy and sweet and let mummy work. He even made a cameo appearance in the video. He is the light of my life.

I hope you all enjoy this video! Know that it is loaded with love for all of you, from all of us!
Love and Light
Klara Kazmi
