Swedish teen drama series Young Royals is coming to Netflix this summer, and right from the start, it’s hard not to notice the show’s soundtrack.
Throughout the series, the soundtrack incorporates modern, rhythmic dance floors in contrast to the stuffy interiors of the palace and the buttoned-up public persona that Prince Wilhelm (Edvin Ryding) has to adopt.
From Norwegian singer-songwriter Astrid Smeplass (“Astrid S”) to Dutch duo Fata Boom, the show’s soundtrack is best described as a mix of Nordic and Scandinavian electro hiphop.
The music also provides the first connection between Wilhelm and the lover Simon (Omar Rudberg), when the latter performs a version of “It Takes A Fool To Remain Sane” (The Ark) at a school assembly.
