Bernhoft (N) - Come Around

Written by 

In our eyes Norwegian singer Bernhoft can do no wrong… well… up to now that is.

A truly exceptional artist his official video for 'Come Around' doesn’t exactly show him in the best light - looking rather pale and unfit. We don’t think all men should be tanned with six packs, and we applaud his visual honesty (lacking in so many over sexualised videos these days). However, his physical appearance does detract heavily from a brilliant song.

Despite his impressive breath-holding skills, and clever underwater footage it's not quite the amazing video we'd hoped for.

And just why oh why is he wearing shoes?

  • Backstage with Bernhoft

    LONG READ.

    The last time I saw Jarle Bernhoft, he was leaving a bar in Stockholm at 3 am.

    He grabbed his jacket, tucked in his cravat and headed into the cold night air. The applause of the crowd after his performance at the Scandinavian Soul Music Awards earlier in the evening still rang in my ears.

    I mention this as now I follow the Norwegian singer down the stairs to backstage area at the venue Nalen as we prepare to reminisce the past and talk about the future. Meeting artists is part of my job. However, with Bernhoft it never feels like work. It feels like sitting with a charming friend, who welcomes you in and invites you to his table. In fact, he offers me a drink as I enter. Courteous as always.
