Out now is Charlotte Dos Santos new single - Good Sign and it's stunning!

The Norwegian singer has quickly become one of the diamond names music websites like ours eagerly search for. 

Now the anticipation for her next release is like queueing at an iPhone giveaway! 

I Went to The Jungle - is the debut track by Swedish singer Hannes and it's a stunningly eloquent premiere that you'll feel from the first play!

Hannes announces himself with an alluring soulful sound produced with an exquisite balance of groove and melodies.

The track has already received plaudits. UK DJ Rich Chocolate (floradio.co.uk) said, 'A new name to my ears but delivering something familiar, soothing and delicately smooth.' While Noa Söderberg wrote, "The consistency of intimacy and brilliance reminds me of Frank Ocean with a chamber orchestra."

D/troit, Denmark.

It's time that started showing on Google maps and marked as the place to find one of the finest soul bands in Scandinavia.

Public Secret won't be a secret for long

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!

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.

Neoholics return with an apt cover version

We haven’t heard from the Neoholics since 2015 and so its a welcome return for this Swedish band. The Neoholics drew immediate attention with their debut single, a Neo-soul/R&B cover version of Pharrell Williams - Happy and several funky follow up tracks.

Now the band return to their crate-digging selections to produce their own version of the single - Apparently Nothing (1991) by UK band Young Disciples.

Adée adds soul to Miss Right

There’s simply no stopping Adée.

In 2016 the Swedish singer from Kalmar toured the US, returned to Sweden to feature on Beat Funktions album - Green Man, and still found time to release one of the best albums of the year - Addicted (review coming soon).

Now the singer re-works one of her favourite songs, Miss Right by Anderson .Paak and adds her soulful vocals, with production by David Ekströmer. The result is yet another excellent example of the versatility and competency of this young and exciting soul-hop singer.

In case you’re wondering, Nine Sparks Riots isn’t a punk band.

Nine Sparks Riots is Swedish trombonist, Kristian Persson's Jazz band, and his new single - Elevation is a soulful testimony to making the most of life.

“I was quite high on life when I wrote the song, so it's basically about appreciating and making the most of our short time here on earth. And, be sure to leave it a little bit better than when we got here” says Kristian.
