Farida - New York (feat. Undr)

Norwegian singer Farida has released her new single - New York which impacts with future beats and delicate vocals. 

Produced by fellow Norwegian Undr, from the outset the track hits and caresses as dramatic as the namesake's city skyline. Farida sings in a soft, sensual R&B tone edged with a steeliness that cuts with 'fuck what you say' lyrics.

NEW VIDEO: Artifact Collective - Nice View

Danish band Artifact Collective discover what happens when an old man celebrates his birthday in a cabin with three ladies.
We've just discovered a smooth and mellow soulful single 'Leo', on Soundcloud and it's stuck on repeat. The track is a collaboration of Swedish producer Sasac and US singer Dreamcast.

Singer Taliah also provides seductive backing vocals on this cut that melts and floats with an engaging, laid-back rhythm.

Incredibly, this is the B-side!

Melody Carlsson - I’m not trying to force it

I'm always listening out for something different, off track, and bordering the lines of genres. It draws me consistently to the evolving experimental sound of soul, pop, and Nordic noir. Last year, 2016, while on my regular dive through the thousands of songs on Soundcloud I discovered a track titled - Över Nu. Very raw it still stood out for tender, sweet vocals, a simple yet catchy electronic arrangement, and an artist named straight from a 70's film.  

The more I listened through the uploads, the more curious I became about Melody Carlsson.

Paul Mac Innes - Crash & Burn

Swedish singer, Paul Mac Innes second single Crash & Burn is a soulful/pop fusion oozing impassioned emotion.

The bespectacled singer has gone back to the core of his music, and the result feels retro yet modern, almost with a ‘Bowiesque’ lyrical construction. Released with a rolling cassette video it also genuflects his love for nostalgia. He’s asking us to listen the way we used too.
