Although she has only released four singles, Swedish Bluephox has already been hailed as ”Pop diamond”, ”An extremely promising artist” and compared to icons such as Robyn, HAIM, Bonnie Tyler and ”as if Stevie Nicks had fronted Future Islands”. (Nöjesguiden, SWE-HYMN, SWE-BBC1 & Hoxton Radio, ENG-Popmuzik, SWE-The Revue, CAN-Makeitsoundumea, SWE) Bluephox, or Philippa Magnusson, grew up in Stockholm with music constantly present. Many thanks to her father, who was a rock guitarist in the 1960s. The musical legacy characterized the childhood home where Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, Fleetwood Mac, Van Morrison, Stingoch Supertramp went hot in the turntable. In her late teens, Isena fell in love with a singer who uses her voice as an instrument – the soul queen Erykah Badu. Together with contemporary, electronic synths, it is in the mix of influences we find Bluephox. The debut single Gold was released on May 22, 2020 and ended up on Apple Music’s top 100 best songs of 2020. The sequels Paul’s Boutique from the same year and the cover of Red Hot Chili Peppers Californication continued in the same obvious Bluephox manner. In October 2021 she got officially back again – this time with a 80s inspired pop banger named ”Touched by Neon”.
February 19th she will play on the Future Echoes Sensus stage, where she and her band will also play new, unreleased material.
