Twaine - A World in Change

Written by
Soul came from gospel. It was born from suffering and gave heart and hope. In light of the heartbreaking events in our home city Stockholm last week we could all use some spiritual re-connection.

Directly touching at my soul is the single - A Gospel by the Swedish band Twaine.

'A Gospel' was first released on the Japanese compilation album 'We -Songs of Hope-', and all royalties went directly to the people affected by the catastrophe in Fukushima, Japan, 2011. The single also features on their new album - A World in Change.

Rohey - A Million Things

Written by
Sold out gigs, high praise from Jamie Callum, and a five-star review in the Norwegian newspaper Dagsavisen confirm what we already knew - Rohey is different, exciting and a band you should know.

The Norwegian quartets exquisite, jazzy-soul tracks have impressed since their debut, and the first compilation of their music can now be found in a strikingly designed, 12-track album - A Million Things.

Public Secret won't be a secret for long

Written by
The debut single from Copenhagen-based future soul band, Public Secret - Tears (To Water Her Roses) is the first beacon to what we feel will become a shining soul light.

Inspired by the sounds of Bilal, Andersen Park, Frank Ocean, D'Angelo and Thundercat, Tears (To Water Her Roses) is a beautifully titled, lyrically engaging track. Deftly produced by Lush Reality, the tight soulful rhythm builds to a dynamic and passionate crescendo. 

Released with the digital track is a creative music video, filmed and directed by band members Ölle Häggberg and August Campeotto. In the video hooded lead singer Bobby Bovell (who we discovered as a solo singer) meanders against the backdrop of Copenhagen's futuristic urban architecture.

Mikala’s Got It!

Written by
Having raved about her debut single, the free to download - Save Your Love (reviewed here), emerging Danish chanteuse MIKALA returns with a surprise new release, in the shape of the mid-tempo gospel-tinged - We Got It.

If her debut was an announcement of the promise to come, then We Got It, cements that promise.

Snoh Aalegra Feels Nothing Burns Like The Cold

Written by

Snoh Aalegra keep’s the intoxicating goodness coming in the shape of two single releases from the second of her proposed trilogy of Mini Albums, following part one of her critically acclaimed ‘Don’t Explain’ Mini Album released in the middle of 2016.

Awash with emotion, Feels, released towards the tail end of 2016, is a poignant mid-tempo melodic slice of Motown’ish Soul. The track treads the lyrically familiar path of realised longing, yet Snoh elevates this theme into something wondrous.
