I’m a sucker for a synth-pop song, so when I listened to Ms. Henrik’s new single, 1994, I knew I would enjoy it on some level. However, I didn’t expect to enjoy it quite as much as I did.
Following the trend of successful and talented Swedish pop-stars, Ms. Henrik delivers. 1994 is an electro-pop fest, with a strong message behind it.
The support for LGBT has risen in the past couple of years, and only recently America legalised same-sex marriage in all 50 states. So it’s only natural that songwriters show their support and involvement with the LGBT community.
1994 was inspired by a 75 year old man Ms. Henrik met. This man had a wife and kids before coming out as gay. As well as that, Ms. Henrik has appeared at Stockholm Pride, and 1994 features on Songs With Pride.
The song is full of summery fun, with a 90s pop feel. It’s an enjoyable listen and a good sing-a-long song.
