SOWECO - Keep On

SOWECO has already laid down a solid reputation for creating music which weaves smooth jazz-infused vibes through soulful grooves. Their new album does take a bit of finding, however, once you do track it down, you are in for a real treat.

Marie Dahlstrom - Nine EP

It is in the quieter and more considered moments that I often find the greatest pleasures. It is why Marie Dahlstrom’s new e.p. has been a constant soundtrack for a while now.

ALBUM REVIEW

The Band Called Oh - Guerrilla Gardening

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. We took a listen to the Norwegian band's new album.

Farida drops her new single - You

We have a feeling you're going to see and hear the colourful Norwegian singer in the photo a lot more in 2018 and beyond.

Her name is Farida, and she continues to go from strength to strength.

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.
