Violet Days – Suck At Love

Violet Days - Suck At Love

Violet Days – Suck At Love

Violet Days is the project of Swedish singer/songwriter, Lina Hansson.

Asking whether you ‘Suck At Love’ is always going to be tricky to answer, but it’s also highly relatable to the majority of listeners. Luckily for us, Kris Eriksson (The Chainsmokers) is on production duties, helping Violet Days create an anthemic electronic song that almost makes us forget the initial question.

Violet Days will be playing the Ja Ja Ja club night at The Lexington in London on 23 February.

Sounds like: Tove Lo, Ellie Goulding, Monogem, Lorde, Chrvches, Evvy, VÉRITÉ, Imogen Heap, Dominique

Jake Alder – Chasin’ Time Feat LKA

Well this is a great collaboration, isn’t it? The UK meets Finland as Jake Alder invites LKA to join him in ‘Chasin’ Time’.

The track is a sultry number with epic synth surges and fulfilling drum beats, all of which create an emotional experience. LKA’s intentions when writing the lyrics for ‘Chasin’ Time’ were to help her advance forward in all endeavours, and this song proves that both parties are doing just that.

The track is being offered as a free download from Jake’s SoundCloud page.

Emma Gatsby – 2 Steps

Emma Gatsby - 2 Steps

Emma Gatsby – 2 Steps

Sassy 19 year old Emma Gatsby knows what the deal is, and she isn’t letting anyone get in her way.

Hailing from New York, Emma learned to play the piano and cello at the tender age of four, with her mother teaching her, until she sadly passed away when Emma was aged nine. Following this, Emma picked up a guitar and decided to teach herself to play. She was writing songs by aged eleven, but was using music as a way to distract herself from the realities that she found herself in, especially after her father passed away.

Of her latest song, Emma says, “‘2 Steps’ is a song I wrote about a relationship or should I say several relationships. As much as it’s based on my real life experience with an ex, it was more so, my realization that I was always the one doing the damage first that inspired the song.”

Violet Days – Your Girl

Violet Days - Your Girl

Violet Days – Your Girl

Violet Days is the electronic project of Stockholm based Lina Hansson.

The new single ‘Your Girl’ is a fresh slice of artful and stylish indie pop.

Lina says of the track;

“I guess this song is my way of saying that sometimes you need to feel like you’re more than just enough for someone. That you want to feel special and deserve not to be taken for granted. It´s like being kept in an emotional limbo where you don´t know what anyone feels anymore, cause there´s no interaction, and that sucks.”

SP¡ON – Sunset

SP¡ON

SP¡ON

It’s not all about Sweden. Norway also has some incredible music to offer.

One of our ones to watch for 2016 is SP¡ON; a newly formed and highly talented Norwegian electronic trio with all three of its members scattered across different cities throughout Europe.

The first member of SPiON is based in Bergen and has a background in animation; the second is a music producer and songwriter currently working out of London. Co-writes and credits to date include Aurora, Sinead Harnett, Pusha T, Max Marshall, and MNEK. The final member is based in Copenhagen developing sounds and music purposefully for video games.

Although the trio have been collaborating together musically since 2007, ‘Sunset’ is the first track to be revealed under the SPiON moniker. It features the vocals of Ina Sagstuen, an established jazz singer currently basing herself in Oslo, as well as an incredibly atmospheric vocal section from Sølvguttene, the Norwegian National Broadcastings (Norwegian equivalent of the BBC) official choir.

Sounds like: Imogen Heap, Violet Days, Mew, Broods, FLOR, Pink Floyd

Proving that you don’t need many followers to create musical waves as long as you scream loud enough is Stockholm music project, Violet Days.
