SVEA's Blackout: Y2K Pop Meets Modern Mayhem

SVEA’s Blackout hits like a glittery sledgehammer to the gut. This track from The Last 90s Bitch album serves up a potent cocktail of nostalgia and modern grit, shaking up memories of Y2K pop princesses with a shot of hard reality.

The song opens with a spoken-word intro that feels like a therapy session gone rogue.

SVEA’s voice cuts through the haze, painting a vivid picture of a relationship spiralling out of control.

Her lyrics are a neon sign flashing “DANGER” in the dark alleys of toxic love.

As the beat kicks in, you can almost smell the stale cigarettes and spilled vodka cranberries.

SVEA’s vocals dance on the edge of vulnerability and defiance, capturing the dizzy euphoria of a night out and the crushing hangover of regret.

The chorus hits like a sucker punch wrapped in velvet. “You love me when I blackout, six feet underground”—it’s a line that sticks to your ribs, forcing you to confront the ugliness lurking beneath the glitter.

Musically, Blackout is a chameleon. It shapeshifts from an intimate confessional to a sweeping cinematic soundscape.

One moment you’re in a smoky dive bar, and the next you’re staring at an endless horizon, questioning your life choices.

SVEA manages to bottle the essence of late 90s pop and spike it with a hefty dose of 2020s realness.

It’s like finding your old diary and realising those “deep” teenage thoughts were actually onto something.

Blackout isn’t just a bop; it’s a time machine, a mirror, and a warning all rolled into one irresistible package.

SVEA has crafted a song that makes you want to dance, cry, and maybe make a few questionable decisions along the way. Just remember to hydrate.

SVEA Blackout Lyrics

Intro
Are we really interested in the same things?
Do we feel at ease together?
Are we proud of each other?
Do we agree on the basic things, such as children, marriage, money?

Verse 1
Everythin’s gettin’ blurry
I don’t know where I’m at
Another round to feel pretty
Give me somethin’ that lasts
Our dancin’ never ends at night
Wanna look my best, feel a little less ’cause you love when I do

Pre-Chorus
I’m cryin’ on my knees, my world is upside down
This high is on repеat, don’t wanna see
Our dancin’ never ends at night
This is not my bеst, wanna put it to rest

Chorus
It’s like
You love me when I blackout, six feet under ground
You want the satisfaction, feed your dirty, fucked-up mind
But how do I get better when you’re always around?
You’re dancin’ like the devil in my mind
All night


Verse 2
You know I ain’t got no angel
Sittin’ on the other side
Your love puts me in danger
Ain’t got nowhere to hide
Our dancin’ never ends at night
Wanna shut it down, but I stick around ’cause you love when I do

Pre-Chorus
I’m cryin’ on my knees, my world is upside down
This high is on repeat, don’t wanna see
Our dancin’ never ends at night
This is not my best, wanna put it to rest

Chorus
It’s like
You love me when I blackout, six feet under ground
You want the satisfaction, feed your dirty, fucked-up mind
But how do I get better when you’re always around?
You’re dancin’ like the devil in my mind

Post-Chorus
(You love me when I blackout, six feet under ground) All night
(You want the satisfaction, feed your dirty, fucked-up mind) Alright, oh-oh
(But how do I get better when you’re always around?) You know me when I’m blacked out, my, oh my
You’re dancin’ like the devil in my mind
