Under the Radar: Marlene

With her debut EP Indian Summer out today, Swedish pop starlet Marlene shares her hidden talent and greatest extravagance. 

Would like to meet…
– Beyoncé.

Most memorable night out…
– I think it’s that super hot summer night in Stockholm two years ago, when my friends and I started the night having some drinks at an old shipwreck. After that we went to one of the most well known night clubs in Stockholm, which I usually hate going to. We were dancing for hours and ended with me dancing in my bikini top cause it was too hot. Cause who really gives a f…? And right after that we went swimming naked at Reimersholme by the boats 6 o’clock in the morning.

My greatest extravagance…
– Buying breakfast at the cafe on the corner of my house to bring home and enjoy in my sofa while watching a movie.

In my next life…
– I wish to be born as the third sister of First Aid Kit, so that I could join them on that third harmony. But I would still love to keep the family I have in this life, so they’d have to be the 4th and 5th Strand sisters.

Wouldn’t recommend…
– Forgetting your glasses/lenses when going away for a week to the country side.

My hero…
– My mother and my grandma. My mom became a firewoman when she turned 50. That says a lot.

Most viewed You Tube video…
– I can relate to this:

Before I die…
– I’m gonna bath naked under a waterfall.

Hidden talent…
– I can do weird moves with my shoulder blades. People often feel sick after watching it.

Just discovered…
– That I’m gluten intolerant! So if you wanna invite me for dinner – this information is for you.

Dances to…
– Duke Dumont’s remix of Haim’s Falling.

Laughs at…
– Americas Funniest Homevideos. Me and my family in a big synchronized LOL watching it: http://instagram.com/p/dKk1eDoQxs/ 

Wears…
– Comfortable clothes, often with a sporty twist and mostly bought secondhand.

Most visited website…
– If I can say Instagram, I’ll say Instagram.

Most read book…
– I’m bad at reading books in general, and to re-read a book that you’ve already read is, to me, totally useless. I never even watch films twice. Maybe I read Agnes Cecilia by Maria Gripe twice when I was 12, though…
