Bishat releases her second single - Mine

Written by 

Swedish singer Bishat says she doesn’t want to be put in a ‘RnB or Soul box’. Well, she won’t like this as we’re going to put her into an increasingly growing box of musical talent called 'Scandinavian Soul'.

We only created the ‘box’ (we prefer ‘genre’) to make it easier to discover all the superb soulful music thats happening across Scandinavia. Bishat’s new track Mine is drenched with her soulful vocals and the new R&B flavour - it just has to go in!

Produced by Tamokillme ,‘Mine’ is the follow up to debut single ‘Sober’, which she self-released earlier this year and accrued over 400,000 Spotify streams.

Bishat made her original breakthrough in late 2015 with ‘Some Things, a mash up of Daniel Johnston’s ‘Some Things Last A Long Time’ with the Weeknd’s ‘Often’ and Lykke Li’s ‘No Rest For The Wicked’.

'Mine' came about during a bout of insomnia whilst staying with her Mum in Ethiopia. Bishat says; “It’s about a relationship where the fears of repeating your mistakes are causing those same issues. I can be so bad at having those tough conversations about feelings - in the end it kills you if you don’t, but it’s so much easier for me to write about it.”

Bishat is another impressive independent artist to emerge from Sweden, and it's really exciting times for Scandinavian soul music. Take a listen below:
