Dagny – Fools Gold

Dagny

DAGNY has teamed up with BØRNS on ‘Fools Gold’.

We weren’t sure whether any track this year could top ‘Backbeat’ (which we still play at least once a day!), but it’s a pretty darn good attempt.

Written with Tommy English and DeLacey, ‘Fool’s Gold’ is a hugely confident second offering from the Norwegian songstress, with a new dimension from BØRNS.

“The song is about looking back on a relationship and realising that maybe it was not quite what you first thought. And the big question you ask yourself: if you will ever have that feeling again.” explains Dagny.

Her EP will be released on 4 August via Republic Records.

Secret Weapons – Something New

Secret Weapons

Now for ‘Something New’ from Brooklyn-based Secret Weapons.

Gerry Lange and Dan E. met in mathematics class and in 2014, they started making music together in secret until it was time to launch the duo that is Secret Weapons.

With influences from the ’80s, including Tears for Fears, Hall & Oates, and Cyndi Lauper, ‘Something New’ is a combination of electronic sounds from a former era with catchy indie pop that would definitely be classed as current.

We are also looking forward to the Haerts‘ remix of ‘Something New’, which will be out shortly.

Sounds like: The 1975, Lionel Richie, The Levity, The Island Club, Ghost Beach, Backstreet Boys, LANY, Great Good Fine Ok, The Knocks, Dagny

DAGNY – Backbeat

DAGNY - Backbeat

DAGNY – Backbeat

DAGNY is described in her press release as “quirky folk/pop sound infused with a huge dose of youthful optimism”, and this definitely comes across in her debut single, ‘Backbeat’.

Already with a large fan base thanks to performing countless shows in the last 12 months, DAGNY has mastered catchy pop track full of sweet vocals and a clapping backbeat worthy of the Greece soundtrack.

She is our one to watch for 2016.
