New Music: Tuure Boelius

Entirely sung in Finnish and yet this is just too great not to share with you. It’s a mix of bubblegum pop and a very hard electro sound.

New Music: Louie Blue

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.“

New Music: Pearly Drops

A Finnish duo who masterfully blend dark, haunting pop with minimal indie vibes.

Live: Jesse Markin, Moyka & Elias at Ja Ja Ja

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.

Elias

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

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.

Jesse Markin

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.

When Finland gets it right, it Gets It Right. The bass on this RnB gets the heart kicking, and the vocal is slick as hell.
