Fieh – “Glu”

Although lead-singer Sofie Tollefsbøl is clearly the face of this Norwegian band from Oslo, there are actually 9 members. She started the band three years ago by putting together experienced musicians who were all on the jazz course she was taking at the Norwegian Academy Of Music. Their sound is a blend of lush contemporary electronics generously laden with funk, soul and jazz influences.

This is their first official single and it’s a glorious debut indeed. Intricate instrumentation with a funky rhythm and infectious hand claps lay the groundwork for this energetic arrangement to take shape. Sculpted with jazzy synths, a vintage organ bridge, smooth guitar chords and Sofie‘s hypnotic vocals, it has a laid-back, summery vibe to warm up any cold winter’s day.

Emily Litta – “Tomboy”

Half Italian, half kiwi and living in London, this R&B songstress has also attended the Berklee School Of Music in Boston, USA and is ready to take her rightful place on the music scene with her passionate and funky blend of Motown, old-school hip hop and blues. Being a gifted singer and songwriter, she dazzles with her vocal, story-telling and even rapping artistry.

A funky bass line takes the listener on a journey through her musicality on her latest single. She wrote the song after walking into a clothing store to get a large sweatshirt from the men section, following a long and uncomfortable day full of meetings. A fluid R&B feel, a groovy beat and sumptuous guitar riffs provide a soft bed for her luscious vocals to snuggle up to.

Sonny – “Yesterday’s Gone”

The youth of this charismatic 18 year old singer/songwriter makes his vocal and musical abilities all the more impressive.

His debut EP “Hopeless Romantic” was released earlier this year, which was received with rave reviews. Recently he supported Gabrielle Aplin on her UK tour.

With his mesmerizing, soul-drenched voice, which sounds experienced, professional and emotional well beyond his years, his latest single sets a new standard of excellence. Guided by an acoustic guitar he sings about the struggle of moving on after the end of a relationship with warmth and passion. Stylish strings and sleek percussion complete this enchanting, lush and heartfelt ballad.
