The Scandinavian soul music landscape continues to evolve, with Hilma who’s just dropped her debut release, Espresso.
‘Espresso‘ is not about coffee, as you might think, but a metaphor for the entertainment industry. Espresso is a metaphor for success as an artist who longs for “success”. HILMA sings about tasting different coffee types, to learn from the ‘elite’. She also illuminates her criticism against the idea that there should be only one right way to achieve success.
Espresso is the delightful fusion of soul and pop, a musical blend that resonates with Hilma’s soulful vocals, accompanied by a delightful horn section which adds an extra layer of complexity to complete the track. Hilma’s vocals add alluring melodies to a vibrant production rich in dynamics. A tea cup being tapped is a playfully creative detail.
We extend a heartfelt welcome to Hilma as she gracefully steps into the exciting world of Scandinavian soul music.
