Flikka Shares New Track “Stop Me From”

Following her Gotts Street Park collaboration “Favourite Kind of Girl”Stockholm-based singer-songwriter Flikka today has shared her new single “Stop Me From” via Blue Flowers (Nilufer Yanya, Puma Blue, Westerman). Listen to it HERE.
Produced by Leon Michels aka El Michels Affair, Flikka explains the inspiration behind the song: “I wrote this song while going through a difficult time,” the artist explains. “I had a lot of anxiety and regret and I couldn't sleep. I remember calling up my father in the middle of the night asking what to do with the state I was in. He told me to pick up my guitar and so I did, and this song happened. This was the first song I wrote for the Flikka project and its really about  looking for love in the wrong places. It's one of my most personal songs, which makes it hard to talk about. Sometimes you trust people who you shouldn't trust. It's kind of funny how some people can treat you like shit and make you feel guilty about it.”
Flikka is adopted from the Swedish word ‘flicka' which means ‘girl'; she took the name growing up in her native Stockholm having found that being seen as “such a “harmless” thing as a girl” gave her the freedom to be wild, fearless and to have provocative self-belief. Flikka started her musical education singing in choirs before attending music school where she found the hierarchies too strict; so much so, she almost changed her path and set sights on a career as an actor. Luckily, one of her two brothers came calling at just the right time, drawing her back into music with the offer of singing in his high school band. Flikka suddenly experienced a freedom she couldn’t find anywhere else and began to write her own music, performing in the subway in Stockholm and recording in her parents’ basement. All of these intertwined moments of fortune contribute to the unfolding story of Flikka.
