Swedish RnB with subtle hints of the 90’s.
I can’t remember when we met. I’ve never been good with dates.
At first it wasn’t serious. Like the start of most things, it was just fun. We didn’t really talk about it. We’ve never really talked about it.
From two rooms to one flat. One day, boxes turned up. And the boxes were emptied on to shelves, and stuff that was on the shelves went into boxes, and those boxes were hidden away somewhere, and suddenly it wasn’t mine anymore. Nothing was. It was ours.
I didn’t think about what that really meant. I don’t think either of us did.
‘I’ became ‘we’, and we set off on that journey, hand in hand, blindfolds on.
And now we are here. Wherever that is.
A shared diary, a shared cat, a shared flat, a shared set of friends.
The thing is, when you’ve never planned for any of these things and you haven’t thought about what they meant as they happened, then one day, you wake up and you think.
You think, do I want this?
You think, is this forever?
You think, what part of myself have I lost?
You think, can I ever get it back?
Are we UNITED?
Indie pop from Berlin with a bonkers twist, featuring some random brass, polished beats and a smooth vocal.
A really fun and simple electro-pop sound.
Dark Swedish indie-pop.
“Different elements of my Peruvian culture, from the coast to the Amazons, are incorporated into every aspect of my music, wardrobe, dancing, and storytelling of my videos. The ‘Papi’ music video included a modern twist of choreography and wardrobe elements from a Peruvian dance called Marinera, such as the faldas and the pañuelos. The props in the video were inspired from a Peruvian tradition, the Diablada. I want to introduce everyone to the rich culture of my family’s heritage.”
A conceptually interesting and finessed sound, produced with a sense of sadness.
“Smile’ was written as a reminder that you can never really judge a book by its cover. However happy people around you might appear, inside they can be going through really difficult times and I know how easy it can be to forget that.”
Charming and softly whimsical Irish pop.
Track of the week (for a second time). I’m a sucker for anything that throws back to Lauryn Hill so this track is on the top of my pile this week.
Indie pop with a strong melodic element.
