Robyn and First Aid Kit on stamps

Swedish pop artists are to feature on new postage stamps next year. The five artists that will be featured are Robyn, First Aid Kit, Avicii, Seinabo Sey and Max Martin.

The Swedish postal service PostNord is issuing the stamps as a tribute to Sweden’s music export industry, which ranks third in the world after the United States and Britain.

Sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg, who make up First Aid Kit, say in a statement “Becoming a stamp feels very cool and extremely surrealistic. It’s not something we ever thought might happen! We’re planning to send a letter to our dear grandfather in Hampetorp, will he be surprised.”
