“I loved house music growing up and have always been a fan of soul and disco. When I was 14, I wanted to mix like Roger Sanchez but couldn’t afford DJ gear, so I cross-wired three stereos to practise mixing. If I needed to slow one down, I would press pause twice really quickly.”
Purely sung in Norwegian, this is a dark and intense pop sound that builds up to be quite an epic experience.
“Feeling lonely is one of the most common human feelings, right? Well, being a musician doesn’t really help. Your whole life is constantly moving and the only thing that remains is yourself. And dealing with yourself, oh gosh, we all know how boring and angering that can be. ‘Riding Solo’ is about this. about us. Perpetually on the move, being everywhere and nowhere at the same time. Surrounded by strangers most time of the day, being 9 hours time difference from our people and what we call home, living and dying por y para la música.”
Dance pop with hints of mellow disco.
“Kids growing up these days have years in hostile environments and felt a lot of struggle due to a decade of Austerity… With so many youth centres shutting down and violence on the rise wanted to make a song to reach out and shed some light and guidance.”
“Then after the breakup, he kept trying to throw other girls in my face trying to get my attention months later. So I wrote this song as a letter to him saying everything I wanted to say during the relationship, but never could.”
