SP¡ON – Sunset

SP¡ON

SP¡ON

It’s not all about Sweden. Norway also has some incredible music to offer.

One of our ones to watch for 2016 is SP¡ON; a newly formed and highly talented Norwegian electronic trio with all three of its members scattered across different cities throughout Europe.

The first member of SPiON is based in Bergen and has a background in animation; the second is a music producer and songwriter currently working out of London. Co-writes and credits to date include Aurora, Sinead Harnett, Pusha T, Max Marshall, and MNEK. The final member is based in Copenhagen developing sounds and music purposefully for video games.

Although the trio have been collaborating together musically since 2007, ‘Sunset’ is the first track to be revealed under the SPiON moniker. It features the vocals of Ina Sagstuen, an established jazz singer currently basing herself in Oslo, as well as an incredibly atmospheric vocal section from Sølvguttene, the Norwegian National Broadcastings (Norwegian equivalent of the BBC) official choir.

Sounds like: Imogen Heap, Violet Days, Mew, Broods, FLOR, Pink Floyd

NŌVA - More

NŌVA – More

NŌVA is a 19 year old singer/songwriter from Montreal, Canada.

When we first listened to NŌVA, we thought her sound had similarities to R&B soulstress, Banks, and then we discovered a stripped back cover of Banks’s ‘Under The Table’ on her Soundcloud.

Following a busy stint in the studio, NŌVA has excitingly self produced her debut track ‘More’ for our listening pleasure.

It is full of dark and edgy undertones.

Listen below:

‘More’ has been released by NŌVA and can be purchased on iTunes now.

Sounds like: Banks, Aurora, Palmedo, Photocomfort, Fine Print, Helene Immel
