They say Norway is one of the happiest places on earth, and this sound sums up that sensibility quite nicely. Playful and easy to enjoy, all the while maintaining a minimal indie feel.
“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.
Dark, atmospheric and somehow still understated Norwegian pop.
“In a way this song is about the process of confessing to oneself that you’re a bit of coward in some situations, and maybe specifically when it comes to relationships. It’s not exactly a happy song. But not that sad either really. I guess it’s also about realising that you have some unrealistic expectations when it comes to relationships, and the frustration that comes with it.”
Norway has yet again produced a new electro-pop talent that is well worth taking note of.
Norway’s Siv Jakobsen releases new single ‘Island” ahead of the upcoming album ‘A Temporary Soothing’ which is out on April 24th.
Norwegian bubblegum pop with a funky, playful edge.
“The song is inspired by Nordic elements and reflects on a relationship where you feel like you need to be cold to towards someone to get the attention you deserve.”
This track balances between sounding cute and sassy at the same time, and I am here for it all!
A Norwegian sound that is reminiscent of 90’s trip hop, only this has been injected with a dose of modern RnB and soulful vocal tones.
This is by far the most liberating song I’ve ever written! It’s a big f*** you anthem to anxiety! Like many others I’ve been struggling with it for a long time… hopefully this can lift people’s spirit and I hope people will connect with it and scream out the lyrics!! I really want it to reach as many as possible and help create a big “f*** you” wave towards anxiety!! I know it won’t solve any deep issues people might have, but hopefully it can make someone feel less lonely.”
Norwegian neo-soul never sounded so fresh or smooth…
A mix of Norwegian power pop and EDM.
