Josefin announces her forthcoming release

Singer and songwriter Josefin announces the forthcoming release of her debut EP "Getaway" on May 15, 2013, with the single of the same name arriving on April 24, 2013.

"Getaway" is the followup release to the single "It's OK," released in November 2012. The upcoming album shows a broad musical background; every song has a unique soundscape influenced by soul, pop, dance music, RnB and film scores. Josefin and the producer team Mépù have modeled every song into a getaway, a world of its own for the listener to experience. It's a detailed world where emotions are stronger and colors are brighter. It features a horse (why not these days), manic mumbling armies, revengeful strings, heroic guitars and much more...

Scarlet Pleasure - Ocean

Released today is the first official video from the Danish group Scarlet Pleasure feat Billow. I'm loving this bands sound, attitude and style, which has been cleverly matched with a haunting video where no one actually sings. This IS a band to look out for!
