The past 12 months has been the ultimate rollercoaster for rising Norwegian singer/songwriter/producer Marie Ulven, better known as girl in red. She has released her new single ‘Rue’, It was partially inspired by the character of Rue in HBO’s Euphoria.. The song marks the first glimpse of her not-yet-announced debut album, due sometime in the near future.
Unveiling ‘Oyster Studio’, a new studio initiative from Spotify that “invites Nordic artists to record and release music without any rules or restrictions”, girl in red has gotten in the mix, revealing a fab new cover of Maggie Rogers’ ‘Say It’.
Lokoy is the solo project of 21-year-old songwriter, musician and producer Lasse Lokøy – an electronic and explorative listen that stands in kaleidoscopic contrast to his work with acclaimed Norwegian pop-punk collective Sløtface.
Debut single ‘Malibu’ – released June 22 via Propeller Recordings – demonstrates Lokoy’s inquisitive approach to pop writing, combining “Indian folk rhythms, analog synth pads and cellos”, alongside more subtle sampling. ‘Malibu’ features the partnering vocal of Girl In Red (Marie Ulven).
