Astrid Swan

Astrid Swan hails from Finland, and can ease the anxiety for you as you wait for the new Feist record to hit stores tomorrow. She is quirky and sweet at the same time, and I have been enjoying her debut album Poverina. Her bio seems it necessary to mention that "Astrid Swan is not heavy metal". I am wondering if this disclaimer is needed, if possibly there is a disproportionate ratio of heavy metal to non-heavy metal music coming out of Finland. The name Astrid Swan does not strike me as a metal-head kind of name, like Masters of Destruction or similar. But indeed, she is not heavy metal, which is a good thing for me and hopefully you.

The fact that there is indeed a disproportionate amount of heavy metal coming out of Finland is exactly the reason Swan has decided - rather cheekily, one might add - to mention this little tidbit in her bio.
