Bellaroush - Thinner
Swedish seven (!) piece outfit Bellaroush released their new song called ‘Thinner’ yesterday that came together with two remixes. Electronica, Hip Hop, Synth Pop and even Reggae - they don’t care about any genres. Bellaroush are currently working on their new EP together with Anders Lagerfors (Pale Honey), which will drop next year.
NONONO - Lost Song
Swedish trio NONONO has recently returned with a new single ‘Lost Song’ - and a gorgeous video to accompany this melodic, lustrous pop song dropped last week. “Lost Song is about losing confidence in life, and regaining it. It’s about fear and feeling unidentified, but also about regaining a basic belief in just being,” - says singer Stina Wäppling. Pleasure for both eyes, ears, and soul!
Hôy la - Please
Hôy la is a Norwegian artist that creates sleek experimental music, mixing acoustic and electronic elements. Her new track ‘Please’ is bluesy and mysterious, with bewitching murmuring vocals and trip-hop beats. We say: Must-listen!
Grapell - Snowflake
While we’re waiting for the first snow, Swedish duo Grapell reveals a lovely and Christmas-playlist-appropriate new single ‘Snowflake’. It’s absolutely disarming in its warm and slightly naive sentimentality.
Hater - Red Blinders EP
Hater, one of Sweden’s most promising indie-pop bands, just dropped a new EP titled ‘Red Blinders’ last week. It’s a beautiful collection of four soft and nostalgia-infused tracks that captivate you with their dreaminess.
K-phax - O My God
K-phax is only 19 years old, but he surely does know how to make an infectious track that one cannot get out of their head! Nigeria-born rapper moved to Denmark some years ago, where he was discovered at one of the local music competitions and eventually signed with Universal Music. His debut single ‘Oh My God’ only proves that this guy has a bright music future ahead of him.
Märvel - Angela
Only a heartless person doesn’t like a good old-school rock’n’roll love ballad every now and again. If you’re looking for a new karaoke song to sing your heart out, here’s a tip: Swedish rock legends Märvel have just dropped a new hit track ‘Angela’. Bonus: this lovely video featuring a floating astronaut and a sad lone Swedish rocker:
The Radar Post - Lifeline
Danish singer-songwriter Esben Svane aka The Radar Post offers us folksy yet dynamic indie vibes with his new track ‘Lifeline’. There’s something quite uplifting, hopeful about the song and the melody, carried by Esben’s kind and mellow voice - all in all, a good soundtrack to cheer you up during these cold and miserable winter mornings and nights.
The New Madness - New Madness
More rock’n’roll this week! This time from Danish newcomers The New Madness. Their grungy, garage-rock single ‘New Madness’ has got a visual: cars, races, blonde girl in fake fur - the video is just as eclectic and dynamic as the song.
Vic Adams - I Know A Girl
Oh these Swedish newcomers! Meet Vic Adams, a 21-year-old songwriter from Stockholm. Following into the footsteps of superstars like Tove Lo and Icona Pop, he merges soul-touching r’n’b with pop hooks in a way that is simply irresistible. Check out his debut single & video ‘I Know A Girl’ below:
