Alt-Country From Yet Another Country?

So, a few years back I posted about a South American alt-country act, Madera, whose sound was remarkably similar to the late-90’s sound of many American acts. This week I got an email from Swedish singer-songwriter Pelle Hakman promoting his song “Kind Of Late”, which sounds like a Jeff Buckley tune as sung by Ryan Adams, perhaps. The last remotely twangy Scandinavian music I can recall is from way back in the 80’s and 90’s–the Pushtwangers and the Sandmen–so to get new stuff from that area is an unexpected treat. Would love to hear Hakman with a fuller arrangement behind him, but this song (and the others on his Soundcloud page) is a good start.
