This week’s Trenda: New Nordic Pop playlist update is PACKED with great new Nordic tracks, so here are three fresh releases you definitely shouldn’t miss!
Denmark’s electrifying pop vocalist and producer KIll-J returns with a new song called ‘Trickle Trickle’, having bowled us over with ‘You’re Good But I’m Better’ back in October. KIll-J has made promises of an upcoming EP entitled Quasi, which will be the first release featuring a compilation of KIll-J’s music – and ‘Trickle Trickle’ is the very first taste. The track turns up the tension compared to the previous single, one of the more intense tracks released by the Copenhagen soprano and it certainly deserves its spot on the Trenda: New Nordic Pop playlist.
Titled ‘To My Soul’, Norway’s Jerry Folk unveils the first in a series of tracks to be released this spring. ‘To My Soul’ is a percussive piece of electronic chill, with a beat shuffling back and forth while using the same soul-like keys as on previous single ‘Futura’ to soul it all up a bit – effectively ‘bringing comfort to the soul’ as the lyrics promise. We’re eagerly waiting for more!
Swedish boy band The Fooo Conspiracy return accompanied by a spacey saxophone on ‘My Girl’ – the follow-up to last year’s single ‘Jimi Hendrix’. The band, previously known as The Fooo, rose to prominence after opening up for Justin Bieber in Stockholm back in 2013 following early YouTube stardom, and since then, the band has managed to build a steady fan base in the Nordics.
‘My Girl’ has already been streamed over 100 000 times and has reportedly reached the iTunes charts in Finland and Norway already, so maybe we’ll be seeing more of the Fooo boys on the Nordic Charts soon too?
