A sporadic beat echoes throughout his new single, ‘Neon Colours’, as images of a smokey bodega full of interesting characters in Copenhagen are conjured up through additions of nostalgic gaming electronics.
We love electronica being at the forefront of music, but we also love an amalgamation of genres. Cue WhoMadeWho, a Copenhagen-based trio comprised of Tomas Barfod, Jeppe Kjellberg and Tomas Høffding.
WhoMadeWho like to experiment sounds inbetween disco, funk, techno, indie rock and pop. They also like to tackle hot topics whilst they’re at it…including sex. It’s complicated, ever more so with dating apps like Tinder and Bumble, so why not listen to ‘Dynasty’, and turn that energy you spend on your phone into something good, like connecting with someone in real life? Good advice guys!
Copenhagen-based Vera might be a newcomer in the vocal world, but he has already earned a lot of respect as producer and co-writer for a crop of Norwegian breakout acts including Liss, Soleima, Goss and OffBloom.
His latest track ‘In And Out Of Love’ is a sultry number, reminiscent of Sade, that anchors on the vocalist’s Banks-esq tone seesawing with the 90’s styled saxophone.
Copenhagen-based superstar in the making, MATTIS, shares his stunning debut, ‘Loverboy’.
This self confessed “viking soul” uses somewhat minimalistic production, relying heavily on his vocals (think James Blake or Sampha), but ‘Loverboy’ also tells an emotive story, driven from a dark place that MATTIS found himself in three years ago, having lost his apartment following a break up, and generally feeling like a lone wolf away from the pack.
The single is out via Sony Music in Scandinavia and Tigerspring/TheOrchard elsewhere.
Sounds like: Rationale, Ben Pearce, James Blake, Sampha
