Hello Saferide About
Hello Saferide is the stage name of the Swedish musician and songwriter Annika Norlin, also known as Säkert!. Norlin was born in Östersund, Sweden, and writes songs in both Swedish and English—Hello Saferide being her exclusively English project. The music would mainly be described as indie and indie pop, where her delicate lyrics are accompanied by mostly solemn, although sometimes quite playful, tunes.
The pseudonym derives from a phrase uttered by the phone operator when calling a cab service called Saferide, provided by the university she attended as an exchange student in Willimantic, CT.
She started a collaboration with Jens Lekman in 2018, where the only communication between the two goes through songs. The project is called CORRESPONDENCE and was released in 2019.
