Alexandra Dahlström has had a long time relationship with the Swedish band The Bear Quartet. In 2002 she appeared on their spoken word track “Tuna” and in 2011 she directed and appeared in their music video for “Lovers Goodbye.”
What I didn’t know was that she also lent her voice to their 2006 track “Where I Cried” from their album Eternity Now. The track is instrumental but with two lines repeated twice by a male and female voice. The male voice belonging to Björn Olsson and the female voice belonging to Alexandra:
Vad tyckte du om konserten?
Jag tyckte den handlade om oss
Which translates to:
What did you think of the concert? I thought it was about us
Do you remember that “mystery music video” that Alexandra was supposedly directing last summer while she was in Los Angeles? Well, the mystery is solved! This is the music video for Giorgio Moroder feat. Sia called Déjà Vu. It premiered yesterday on YouTube and I must say I really like the song! You’ll see Lisa Pyk, Julia Gahne and Alexandra Dahlström among the girls in the blonde wigs.
A podcast called Living Life has been posted on Rodeo’s website. There is a 36 minute podcast in Swedish with Alexandra Dahlström as well as a short article and a couple beautiful photos! Thanks to Fish for tracking this down!

Can you believe it’s been 15 years yesterday since Fucking Åmål was released? In honor of it’s 15th anniversary Radio Sweden did an interview with director Lukas Moodysson. The audio is in Swedish so I can’t understand it. I need to learn the language it would make things so much easier! Haha!
