Norwegian rock really doesn’t get better than this. They’re just about to embark on a big tour – check if they’re in a city near you here.
“The day I wrote this song I was upset because it hit me that along the way you’ll get to know people that you think genuinely care about you as a person, but you slowly realise that that’s not the case. With that being said, this song is not full of hate. It’s not a song to hurt anyone. I made this song to make myself stronger and to realise that I should use my time and energy with those who care, and the ones who make me happy.”
“Musically I wanted to capture the fear of getting caught and you’re dirty secret being exposed. The tension. The anxiety. The guilt. Everyone has a nasty side. But all the word’s a stage, so we hide it.”
While entirely sung in Norwegian, there’s no shying away from this new native RnB talent.
Soulful Norwegian hip hop with a darker undertone.
“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.”
Purely sung in Norwegian, this is a dark and intense pop sound that builds up to be quite an epic experience.
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.
Quirky yet dreamy disco from Norway.
