Andy Collins

I'm a South Londoner now living in Sweden. I'm also a part-time DJ/ founder of Urbanlife Radio and co-founder of Scandinavian Soul. Music has always been my soundtrack to life and although I listen to everything, soul is always in my playlist.

The distinct logo design of the Danish band Furns is as recognisable as their sound. In contrast to the logos' sharp edges, the smooth tone of Furns is anything but thorny.

Since 2013, the Danish duo (Monika Faludi and Mathias Dahl Andreasen) has pushed the edges of Nordic soul and pop with their dreamy, 80's influenced, ethereal sound. It's not for everyone. However, many loyal fans (Furnies!), including us, have been drawn in by their soulful vocals and laid back productions.

We haven’t heard from the Neoholics since 2015 and so its a welcome return for this Swedish band. The Neoholics drew immediate attention with their debut single, a Neo-soul/R&B cover version of Pharrell Williams - Happy and several funky follow up tracks.

Now the band return to their crate-digging selections to produce their own version of the single - Apparently Nothing (1991) by UK band Young Disciples.

Saint Cava display the art of the CD

Who says CD’s are dead?

The Danish duo, Saint Cava demonstrate that the silver disc is still a thing of beauty in their latest single / video - No Ones God.

Spinning as if by magic, and displayed as a piece of art, the ‘retro’ disc may be the focus of the video by Kristoffer Moth, but it's Saint Cava's sound that keeps you fixated.

Contrary to what you may have thought, our understanding of all Scandinavian languages such as Danish, isn’t as good as we’d hope, however it doesn’t stop the SSoul team from enjoying the broad selection of native Nordic sung soulful tracks.

A fine example of this is the single/video - Charter by Danish band ‪DoktorDoktor‬, released in December 2016. Despite us not understanding a single word, the soulful, mellow vibe translates into a really enjoyable track.
