Tucked in and among all of the new tracks being added to the Trenda: New Nordic Pop playlist are several gems that have been gaining significant attention over the past week…
The Trenda: New Nordic Pop playlist features brand new songs and artists that we’re tipping to reach the top. The playlist is updated every Monday, and today we’ve got no less than 20 new tracks showing what the Nordic pop scene has to offer!
The first track comes from Sweden’s Tobtok, who was also featured in our ‘21 Tropical Tracks to Help You Forget Winter is Coming‘ playlist just a couple of weeks ago. Tobok’s new song is called ‘Fast Car’ and features London vocalist River on vocals. With the song, Tobtok continues to flirt with the sounds of the southern latitudes, and this track has quickly become his most streamed song on Soundcloud!
Another Nordic artist who has found a special ingredient for her success is MØ, whose cover of Frank Ocean’s ‘Lost’ was featured on the extended release of Major Lazer’s 2015 album Peace Is The Mission. MØ and Major Lazer’s previous collaboration ‘Lean On’ recently became the most streamed track ever on Spotify, and we’re excited to see whether the posse will be able to top that achievement with their cover of this international hit!
Finnish teen idol Isac Elliot released a new single last Friday entitles ‘No One Else’ – a track which is branded a ‘Hot Chocolate Version’, so whether we’ll hear a remix later remains to be seen. The song was written and produced in collaboration with Joonas Angeria, who is responsible for Elliot’s biggest chart hit to date, ‘New Way Home’.
