Myrna Braza (N) – MOMENTS EP

Written by 

Having released one album, one EP, five singles and several music videos since 2009 you would think I would have heard of Norwegian singer Myrna Braza but somehow she had slipped past our Scandinavian Soul music scouts.


Now discovered I thought I'd cast an inquisitive ear over her 6-track EP Moments released sept 2013.


Go! is the title of the opening track which hits you with energetic pop. Without even knowing Myrna she comes across as a bubbly spirit and it's clear in this track. The short, spunky and fun video accompanying Go! almost outshines the song. Very watchable (see below)


'Free me from these chains' sings Myrna in the track Save Me which is also enjoyable with Myrna light, soulful vocals.



However, if the whole EP sounded as good as 'My Cocaine (Ft Son Of Light)' it would have been one seriously stunning EP!

Somehow this track fits Myrna voice best with it's funky soul and groovy breaks. Rapper, Son of Light edges his way in to the song with a fitting uptempo rap and we last heard him dropping lyrics on Rebekka B Maeland's 'My Way'. Thrilling and exciting, such is the quality of this track that sadly the remainder of the EP comes up short.

Moments 240Still Waters, Lala and Heavy Heart just don't sit well with the brilliant My Cocaine.

Listening to more tracks in her back catalogue it's hard NOT to like Myrna, with her charming style and infectious energy, however the EP Moments does indeed have its moments – highs and lows.

The highs however only prove what music magic Myrna is really capable of.

    I really wanted to like The Band Called Oh (N) album more. Everything about it on paper ticks many of my personal creative boxes.

    An album built around the concept of Guerrilla Gardening, a movement that sought to improve the urban decay of 60’s New York is certainly a brave and fascinating idea. One which weaves politics and ecology with form-shifting progressive pop, chimes with the distant echoes of soul music’s revolutionary battlecry and explores forward thinking “music as art” potential.

  • Tomi Malm - Walkin’ On Air

    When you have spent the last twenty years building a solid reputation as a composer, arranger, orchestrator, and producer on a multitude of successful records, TV themes and multimedia scores, there is only one logical thing to do next. Release your own debut solo album.

    And that is exactly what Walkin’ On Air is, a chance for the Finnish creator Tomi Malm to work without any brief, restrictions or considerations and the result is a glorious collection of songs that range from elegant jazz-infused pop grooves, smokey funk boogies, emotive and soaring ballads and a host of creative genre fusions.
