New Music: ST. NIKLAS

A rousing blend of Norwegian power pop and synth.

“In one moment you’re in loves’ intoxication, but in the next one you feel that love is a curse. It’s pretty weird, but while looking back on previous relationships even my very best friends couldn’t comfort me. It really makes no sense when I’m looking back on it. Is it because the need of being seen is biggest from that very person that just told you you’re not good enough?”

jens – Nocturnal

“‘Nocturnal’ is written about an on-and-off relationship I was involved with, the track can definitely be called self-biographical. To me the song is a great soundtrack to a carefree summer fling.”

A Norwegian indie-rock quartet with a meaningful message.
