As the sun slowly sets across Scandinavia’s picturesque archipelagoes and luscious countryside, Norwegian singer/songwriter Sheila Simmenes pulls the curtains on summer with a song of young love and optimism.
From the sweet horns on the intro – to the ‘oh-too-soon’ end, Could Be Love swings with a sweet, catchy jazzy embrace. Sheila Simmenes’s distinctive, soft vocal tone is expressive, elegant and effortlessly soulful. You can never tire of her melodies. Providing an ideal bass line are Fredrik Sahlander, Eirik Ask (Drongo) with Bjørn Ole Rasch on keys, and soul songstresses Kristin Dahl and Veronica Andersen on backing vocals.
The track celebrates the hopeless romance and never-ending optimism of young love.
“I have been a hopeless romantic, and I’m almost embarrassed remembering myself in my early 20s. I was so ready for love that I just saw everything and everyone through rose-tinted glasses. But there is also a beauty to that courage and fearlessness that lets you dive into love again and again.”
– Sheila Simmenes
This summer, the songstress provided an array of sunshine-filled singles such as; Here We Are, Anywhere you Go and Promise Me – evoking images of golden beaches, swaying palm trees and good times.
