As we write this, it’s 30+ degrees with the sweltering heat we’ve longed for! It’s also provided ideal days to pause and look in the rearview mirror of Scandi soul releases – back to April 1st, to be precise. This was the release date of Norwegian producer/ drummer Bård Berg‘s single ‘Sushi Easy Girl‘.
‘Sushi Easy Girl’ is a neo-soul song with clear points towards Prince, Erykah Badu and D’Angelo,” explained Bård and Peter, “and is about a boy who falls in love with an unattainable girl”.
This single is a true homerun in collaboration with artist Lazy Pete providing an exceptional pitched vocal.
‘Sushi Easy Girl‘ is a distinctive combination of soul and funk, with some rock elements mixed in as well, which add that extra spice to the overall impression of the song. The laid-back tempo is captivating and the production is outstanding. Rare groove quality!
While the song title is Sushi Easy Girl, you may also find yourself singing ‘Such an easy girl!‘ Well, we did!
We also want to mention the recently released live video, where we see Lazy Pete performing the song. With a vintage vibe to it, raw, not- staged and directed, it gives the feeling of being at a real concert. Overall, the video and the song serve sunshine soul vibes.
Sushi Easy Girl is a song you could keep on repeat, especially during summer as warm and relaxing as this.
Delicious soul just got served!
