This Swedish talent blends gospel, soul and RnB with a polished and finessed beat.
“The song itself is about realising that I really can’t be anyone while being in a really dark time of my life. I can only be myself, and if that isn’t good enough for someone, then i need to move on, but in the song i’m still holding on to the idea of what she could be, because it’s hard and I don’t really want to leave, even when I have to.”
Alternative pop with a charming undertone.
“The Anti-Terror Album’ is an alternative pop music record that I have written as a response to a clandestine governmental terror exercise that I got hold of and leaking through art and music. I am interested in contemporary music that have empowering, political ambitions and effects. The Anti-Terror Album is presented through the Museum of Contemporary Art [DK] and Creative Europe [EU] and is recorded with an amazing team of diverse musicians in Copenhagen, Belgrade and London.”
This Swedish singer-songwriter duo have managed to create one of the catchiest, simplest pop songs you’ll listen to all week.

Purely sung in Norwegian, this is a dark and intense pop sound that builds up to be quite an epic experience.
“I’m Here Now’ mirrors the feelings of longing for someone so intensely that when you actually do touch for the first time, its like you’ve known each other for your whole life – like in a Disney movie. And every time that person is not around, you go back to that first phase of intensely longing for their warmth.”
What better way to celebrate 10-years of London’s top Scandi night, Ja Ja Ja than to go and watch them showcase three of my absolute favourite Nordic acts last night.
I have been featuring this Swedish talent since 2015 and I am still a huge fan of his raw take on soul and pop – and the intensity is amplified tenfold on stage.
Moyka carries a powerful synth pop sound in a way that Norwegian talent only can. Watching this kid live felt like a polished cross between Robyn and Ingrid, only with a naivete charm which makes the whole sound so unique.
One of Finland’s brightest talents of late, with the most stunning fusion of RnB and pop. A bold presence on stage, this set was mind blowingly epic and captivating.
A beautifully simple acoustic sound with a sense or warmth and genuineness.
