August means we are now eight months into 2016 and you know what…we’re still smiling.
Despite numerous frightening and truly horrendous events, which could easily drag us down into despair, we’re still smiling because we’re listening to a brighter side of life. A world where people of all colours, backgrounds and countries unite and together they make harmonious magic. And it’s all right here on scandinaviansoul.com.
Since January we’ve heard so many truly, wonderful releases by artists such as: Peo, Cecelia Stalin, Black Dylan, Bernhoft, Dim Out, Pomona Dream, Native Dancer, Nosizwe, Ness, Marie Dahlstrom, Kaalm, LouLou LaMotte and so, many, many more!! With new releases still to come from Nanna B, Tingsek, Linn & Freddie and Melo, to name but a few, there’s plenty of reasons for you to smile too.
Our joyous journey of soulful discovery continues as July and August continue to reveal a wealth of sumptuous music.
BE YOUR GIRL feat. Sandra Bang
Swedish duo, Pomona Dream, blasted off with their debut EP Rainbow Milk which is full of superb, future scandi soul vibes. Now lead singer, Sandra Bang, temporarily flies solo as she features on producer Marbro Man’s new track – Be Your Girl. The result is a delightfully sexy, sweet and dreamy track.
De Paula – Waltz
Previously known as Emilie De Paula, Swedish singer De Paula (see the main photo) has released several new tracks on Soundcloud from her forthcoming EP. With a change of name comes a change in style and her soulful/blues sound is now deeper in a statement, and even more personal. This is best highlighted with the track Waltz which takes several plays before it slides into your soul.
Loulou LaMotte – Gonna Miss Me
Gonna Miss Me isn’t an official release from soul newcomer Loulou LaMotte but what the hell! She’s got a new EP landing soon and we think she’s great!
