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.

FARIDA (N) - ‘THE 25TH HOUR’ MIXTAPE

If you research the artist Farida, you’d be surprised to come across an article whose author opens by expressing shock at hearing R&B from Norway. A little more research would reveal that Norwegian Soul & B&B has been on the rise for a while, thanks to artists such as Rebekka B, Bernhoft, Beady Belle, Monica Ifejilika, Nosizwe, Baba Soul, Miss Tati and many others.

For newcomers to Norwegian soul though, there’s still a mountain of joy to be found in the discovery of these artists.

A new discovery for us is the Norwegian singer Farida, who blends the melancholy of Scandinavian life with R&B and experimental beats on her debut EP, ‘The 25th Hour’ Mixtape.
