Sometimes we listen to an artist and automatically assume that he or she is already well known, but it’s not until we look at their social media accounts that we realise the travesty of the situation.
One artist in this boat is Swedish producer and R&B pop artist, Lucas Nord.
Nord has music in his blood; he is the grandchild of legendary Swedish jazz musician, Putte Wickman. A producer, expanding into singing, Nord’s new single, ‘Faking’, details a relationship that is not what Nord thought it was and is his most personal song to date.
Nord has once again managed to successfully combine indietronica-styled vocals with dance-based bass lines; something that we haven’t really seen since the emergence of Disclosure.
He is going to be huge in 2016.
The track is the first song from Nord’s forthcoming mini LP, ‘Company’, due to be released in 2016 through Swedish indie label Cosmos Music (Say Lou Lou, Naomi Pilgrim).
