Check Out These Postage Stamps Of Sweden’s Biggest Current Musicians, From First Aid Kit To Robyn

“Most of my heroes still don’t appear on no stamp,” Public Enemy once famously bemoaned. Maybe Chuck D and Flava Flav should consider relocating to Stockholm or renting a cosy Gothenburg cottage for a while: those Swedes seem to have the right idea. Next year, Postnord – the postal company run by the Danish and Swedish governments – will start issuing postage stamps featuring five of Sweden’s current biggest music exports: Robyn, First Aid Kit, Avicii, Seinabo Sey and Max Martin. Check them out and finger’s crossed the idea of adorning post with indie scrappers spreads to the UK’s Royal Mail. I mean, what correspondence wouldn’t be made better by Fat White Family’s gurning faces or Harry from Peace’s delinquent grin staring at you from the top right hand corner?
