Máni Orrason – I Swear It’s True by Yannic Pöpperling

We are extremely excited about the first of this week’s gems! The Icelandic “cowboy baby angel” Máni Orasson returns with a reflective video about love in ‘I Swear It’s True’.

The visuals typify the hardships Orrason bravely struggles – agonizing fears for the future, unfulfilled longings, obstacles that life throws in the way of those in love – all within a beautiful, glitter-filled backdrop.

It’s out today via Humming Records.

…and what a way to finish off this week’s gems! Gorgeous, driving disco-pop courtesy of Finnish artit Onni Boi.

It’s rare to get a warm euphoric feeling that can instantly take over the body, but ‘Tides’ does just that. Boi has achieved the ability to make the whole room dance with his playful machine beats, as well as offering a shoulder to cry on.
