A perfect slice of Nordic funk pop by this 18-year old talent from Finland.
“This is the song that makes you dance while you’re walking down the street and you make a complete fool out of yourself although you think you look like the coolest guy in the world. It makes the rainy day feel like it’s shining.“
While enjoying a speedy rise on the Danish music scene, Favor received news in Summer 2019 that he was experiencing loss of hearing and tinnitus, which in turn triggered panic – as it would with anyone.
“For me, creating music is a way of life and if I cannot, well who am I then? I was really scared it would get worse. Because what would happen if it did? I talked to my producer Morten Søgaard (Masasolo) about and he just asked the right questions. Which songs would you wish you had written? Who would you have written them for? What would they be about? That became a turning point for me.”
Nonetheless, Favor continues to delight us with his unique take on retro-pop.
“Most of my songs come from a sort of dystopian place inside of my head and often written to escape that exact place and give comfort. ‘Drown’ wasn’t written to comfort myself but a dear friend of mine who was going through really hard times of sorrow.”
“This song, like the whole EP, is very introspective. it revolves around the feeling of not being in a healthy state. it switches back and forth between singing to myself in third person, and from myself in first person – which symbolises a certain duality and disorientation. self love and self criticism.”
The debut EP ‘Echo Emotions’ is set to drop on May 8th.
A polished release from this promising new Danish/ Ethiopan soul talent.
“Though ‘Stupid’ sounds like bittersweet a love song, it is actually not based on a traditional love affair but on these mixed feelings I often get as an artist. Writing pop music and performing can at times feels purposeless and I sometimes get insecure and feel like quitting all of it to start looking a ‘proper’ job. Others days I feel like music is actually living inside of me, that singing is the only way I can ever express myself.”
“Addicted To Blue is the bop I never realised I had. It lived as a piano ballad for over a year and I never knew which direction to take it in. I went out to Sweden to produce it with Elias Kapari and we had such a fun time with it because it was such a blank canvas, so we tried everything just for fun!”
Refreshingly quirky indie pop with a playful twist from Magnus Bechmann.
“Situations in everyday life that are usually not a big deal can grow totally out of proportion whilst laying awake in bed at night, unable to sleep. ‘What Do You Know’ is about just one of these situations, where you find yourself in a relationship that is better to get out of than to stay in.’’
“The song was written just after finding out my girlfriend at the time was moving abroad for a year. It felt really raw and this was the first thing I wrote. A year later Joakim picked up the track and brought it to life with his killer production!“
