Nosizwe releases new single/video - Hey Ya

Written by 
Hey Ya is the Norwegian singer's fourth release from her debut album "In Fragments" and in isolation highlights the strength of the album.

Released in 2016 and produced by Georgia Ann Muldrow the album was nominated for Phonofile Nordic Album of The Year at by:larm in 2017. Comparable to creative US singer Solange Knowles, this single is poetic, melodic, and soulful with a jazzy edge.

There is undoubtedly an abundance of music fighting for your attention, and we aim to cut through the noise and reveal musicians you can't ignore. Nosizwe is one such an artist. It’s an excellently produced track from an incredibly underrated artist.

Released with a video (which I hear was a lot of fun to make) the bubbly singer continues to remind us of the talents right here on our Scandinavian doorsteps.


And yes, the cutie in the cover pic is Nosizwe!

  • 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.

  • REVERSE LIGHTS ON: Nosizwe - In Fragments
    Let’s do some maths.

    If the availability of recording software and access to small but well-equipped studios means that more and more music is finding its way out in the world, but the amount of people actually reviewing (as opposed to just sharing and streaming) is decreasing then it goes without saying that smaller (but perfectly formed) sites such as this often have trouble keeping up with all the great music that comes its way. But just because the review might not appear at the point of release, there is no reason why we can’t still help the cause a little further down the line.

    I say this by way of explaining why this review is of an album which has been out in the world for over a year now, but great music is always going to find a champion, they just might take a while to get around to it. And In Fragments was never going to get too far away, for this is indeed great music.
