We asked rising Swedish artist, femme photographer, and all around cyber-babe Arvida Bystrom to curate a guest playlist of some of her favorite tracks to create art to. Enjoy her selection of fuzzy dream pop, sickly sweet synth-pop, and rhythmic future rap, a combination of sounds which, somehow, seem to perfectly mirror her candy-colored world.


Iberia – ACAB
“A friend told me to listen to this band. I like ’em, and I especially like the name of this song.”
Madonna – What It Feels Like For A Girl
“Me and Maja Malou Lyse listened to this song all last month when we were putting up a show we curated together. Also, the speaking part from the beginning is Charlotte Gainsbourg from the movie Cement Garden… Great movie.”
Tirzah – No Romance
“Mica, who produced the track, is a QT, and the song is mad good. When love fails, this will be my first track to listen to.”
Zebra Katz – Hey Ladies
“Zebra is always splendid live. And also I’m like, ‘Hey ladies!'”
Call Me – Disclosed
“A girl who I really like sent this to me, so it makes me think of her.”
SZA – Child’s Play ft. Chance the Rapper
“I love this whole SZA album.”
Blue Hawaii – Lilac
“I love the whole ‘Blooming Summer’ album, and I just rediscovered it again after I used half of the duo’s laundry machine yesterday by coincidence.”
