It's time that started showing on Google maps and marked as the place to find one of the finest soul bands in Scandinavia.
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.
If her debut was an announcement of the promise to come, then We Got It, cements that promise.
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.
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.
Swedish producer ‘Soulful’ has today released his first solo single ‘Away’ under the stage name "Sounds Like Moving”.
