A masterpiece of a song, love the vintage drum-machine and synths, and the vocal effect is dope!

Like getting sucked down into a dark hole where you get a glimpse of light here and there. Love this band!
FKA Twigs – ‘Water Me’

Violin from another world! So moody and beautiful.

Emilie Nicolas – ‘Pstereo’
One of the best voices from Norway, and this song must be one of the best pop songs from Norway.

What to say, this is so beautiful! The mix between electronic and acoustic instruments pushing the song forward with Björk’s vocals swimming on top.
Die Antwoord – ‘Ugly Boy’
Some people hate this, we love it!
