So we have a clean sweep of Norwegian music today, but nicely balanced between an established artist ('Highasakite') and 2 new artists, firstly 'To Eva' and now a debut release from singer songwriter 'V I L N E S'. I've been so excited to share this particular artist, as I've listened to his debut track almost daily since I first heard it.
Anyway 'V I L N E S' is from Norway, and he's been tantalisingly releasing teasers and some YouTube performances over recent months, but we're delighted to be able to feature his official debut single. It's entitled 'Demons', and it's beautifully handcrafted offbeat pop, which is engaging straight from the instrumental opening. It has a tune which everybody will love, and the vocals have a lovely lilting quality, switching between storytelling and singing mode. And the instrumental arrangements at the conclusion of the track are just gorgeously constructed, it's definitely the icing on top of the cake.
Take a listen to 'Demons' here - this really is 2 minutes 40 seconds of indie pop genius.
So this was released about 3 weeks ago, and I really hope it gets some good traction, as 'V I L N E S' clearly is some talent, and we love quirky, interesting indie pop of this style. We really look forward to future releases.
