Bella Leonette‘s latest release Soligt Barn is a Swedish sung single sprinkled in the sweetest touches of Nordic soul.
Bella Leonette debuted in 2020 with the EP “missade samtal”, which was picked up by Spotify’s New Music Friday and Per Sinding Larsen for PSL (SVT).
Translating as ‘Sunny Child’, the sweet single opens and ends with a childs’ adorably cute voice between Bella’s soul-hop style harmonies, a lush arrangement and rich fragrances of strings, chords and brass.
Soligt Barn was written together with her boyfriend Fabian Aspelin, and created in their apartment studio in Malmö.
‘I sing to my younger self with strings and horns and a soulful feeling’, explained Bella. ‘It’s a cheerful, sunny song with a beat that is powerful yet gentle.’
‘There is truly so much I wish that I could say to her and that I would have wished for her to know, through this song. She is me, and I am her. She was a sunny child. I often think of little Bella; I hold her hand as I grow through life.’
Even none Swedish speakers will find it hard not to melt with this track pouring soothing soul gently into your ears.
