Watch Swedish newcomer Dotter embraces sixties kitsch in new video

Ever since Amy Winehouse brought the 60s back, there has been an influx of some brilliant - and some not so brilliant - throwback songs. But while we all enjoy the music of yesteryear, it can be hard to disect the pastiche from those truly inspired.

However, after first listening to Swedish newcomer Dotter's debut single, "My Flower", it's clear she's definitely part of the latter. The song opens with Lana-like legato strings that are almost recognisable before settling down into the verses. Here it's Dotter's light, open vocals that add intimacy to the track as you feel every syllable she sings.

During the two part chorus, the chiming of bells can be heard amongst the tambourine and soaring vocals, before backing singers add an extra layer of depth to the already outstanding chorus.

Everything from the gloriously uplifting orchestrals to the slight, melancholic lyrics seems so well crafted and loved it's difficult to avoid being snapped up by Dotter's inexplicable charm and warmth and we're rather taken.
