Charlotte Dos Santos - Cleo

Written by
There's been an air of excitement since the dawn of this singer's arrival.

The name, Charlotte Dos Santos, has been sung loudly from this websites rooftops ever since she released her debut single - Watching You (2015) and since then I've been eager to hear her first body of collected work. 

The Norwegian singer has now dropped her first album 'Cleo'. It's the story of a romance told with a pleasant 'loungeful' vibe from start to finish.

Djeff blossom with debut album

Written by

Let me begin by saying this.   

The debut album, In Bloom, by 7-piece Danish band Djeff showcases a band striving for reinvention and recreation and is one of the best albums you'll hear from Scandinavia in 2017 

I write this early so you can press play now rather than read through my words. 

If you're still here, let me explain why?

PATATA & Freddy King are ready to be served

Written by

I wonder if you're like me?

Music on at nearly all times.

Always have headphones on a walk.

And always require a good selection of music when labouring through the preparation and cooking of an evening meal.

Well, I think I've found a delightful album that makes cutting courgettes, peeling potatoes and dicing onions a pleasure.

Introducing Arvid Nero

Written by

Lovers of the award-winning Swedish band The Magnolia will instantly recognise the vocals of Arvid Nero as he launches his debut three-track solo EP - Introducing Arvid Nero.

We don't think we're the only ones who shed a tear when news broke that members of The Magnolia were heading in new directions. Keeping bands together is always difficult, even more so in today's world, so we're just grateful for the extraordinary music they created.

Now solo, Gothenburg based singer/writer Arvid Nero picks up his guitar and presents his personal expression.

The Napkins are Genuine

Written by
Is it just me or do so many pop artists sound very similar?

And in fact, where are all the bands?

Good question, I'm sure you'd agree. However, I'm not going to start disassembling the music business and demonstrate how the major corporations have a monopoly on all commercial music. That's a discussion for another day.

However, I do want to talk about a band who've released their new EP Genuine, and a singer who's voice cannot be mistaken for anyone else.

The band are The Napkins with lead vocals by Charlotta Kerbs.

Reverse lights on Adée - Addicted

Written by
On our quest to find the latest soul music from across Scandinavia we usually fill the tank with premium grade and travel at 130km/per hr. Naturally, therefore, from time to time we miss writing, reviewing or listening to all the new soulful releases. In a desire to address this I'm pressing the brakes, backing up and taking the time to check them out, slowly.

So, with our Scandi Soul Mustang parked outside our favourite night spot in Stockholm, I recline in the leather seats, press play on the album - Addicted, and shine our reverse lights on Adée.
