Shylde – Takes Two

“The song is one of my oldest works and has been with me since the beginning. It’s a cinematic and anxious tune with a great kick of confidence in the chorus.”

LOVA – Jealous Of My Friends

“’Jealous Of My Friends’ is the first song that will touch on the subject of love. For five years now, I’ve been avoiding everything that has to do with love. I’ve tricked myself into thinking that I’m better off without it—mostly because of fear. I think it’s fear of depending on someone and them depending on me, knowing that I can lose it at any second.  I wrote the song at a time where pretty much all my friends were in relationships. I watched my friends be in love and be the happiest they’ve ever been. Obviously, I was super happy for them, but I also found myself being jealous. I was jealous that they dared to get out there and give love a chance, when I couldn’t. I still don’t know if I’m there yet, but writing about it is definitely a step in the right direction. I hope that this year can be the year when I give a part of me to someone else.”

“A song written for my little brothers whilst I was living in London, and therefore not able to watch them grow up. A song about finding the balance between following ones dreams whilst sacrificing time with loved ones in order to do so. A personal yet in many ways, universal song.”

Tribe Friday – Talk So Loud

“I’m a huge fan of New York’s music scene from the Velvet Underground, through the Ramones, to The Strokes and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs , so finding out we were gonna play the Mercury Lounge was a very big deal. It compelled me to write something that paid homage to the sound of New York City (or at least what the sound of NYC is to me), while still maintaining our brand of Swedish teenage angst.”

Noah Deutschmann (songwriter, singer, and guitarist)

Halie – New Fears

“New fears is about embracing your fears and just do it. Even if it doesn’t fit into society’s way of doing stuff. It is supposed so show people how I cope with my fears, acknowledge them, but then again just do it if it brings me closer to my goals!”

New Music: Jon Olav

I can safely say that I haven’t heard conceptual pop like this for quite some time… At first this isn’t an easy listen, but the more you dive into the sound the more drawn in you become.

“The lyrics in this song are kind of two sided. I guess it’s a song about how I’ve thrived under the attention I’ve received in previous years whilst releasing music in Norway, but also how I hate and feel kind of strangled by the pressure that comes with it.”

New Music: Kristin Husøy

Norwegian pop with an essence of bluegrass. This song in particular is competing to represent the country at this year’s Eurovision, and I think it’s got a strong chance.

Benjamin Ingrosso – The Dirt

“This is the first song I am releasing where I get to tell a story, that’s not about me at all. But I love it and hope everyone will get in the mood to dance!”

SAINT BEST – Eternal Sunshine

”The Summer has come and passed. And with it the flushed cheeks, long nights and the hopeful summer crushes. We thought the summer would last forever, we thought that love would prevail. But as the acid rain falls on Copenhagen, the colour of the leafs fade and the nights once again gain ground, we are left with only the toxic memories of a love, that once seamed so immortal. Memories of good times.”
