We asked the Norwegian pop extraordinaire to make us a playlist of what she’s listening to at the moment. Enjoy!
Mapei – “Don’t Wait”
This is a song that I listen to whenever I miss my friends or my hometown. I discovered this song the last summer I spent at home before I got really busy and moved to Oslo to do music full time. And I remember running in the mountain where I live listening to this song every morning. I get a little nostalgic thinking about it.
Emilie Nicolas – “Let You Out”
She’s one of my favourite artists. Her album is amazing, and I listen to it a lot when I’m travelling and walking through crowded airports. This song is my current favourite on her album, but you should check out the rest too!
Jhene Aiko – “Spotless Mind”
This song! It just has an amazing vibe. Makes me want to dive into the ocean and swim to the end of the world. It makes me feel really calm.
Mura Masa – “Firefly”
I love this song!!!! Mura Masa is a British producer, and I would love to collaborate with him in the future. Hehe.
dePresno – “Hide and Seek”
I’m obsessed with this guy. He’s Norwegian and AMAZING. I can’t get enough of this song. I wish I had written it myself.
Karpe Diem – “Hvite menn som pusher 50”
Everybody! This is Norwegian rap music! Enjoy!
LÉON – “Tired of Talking”
This girl is Swedish, and she’s an amazing songwriter. I used to listen to this song in a period where I spent a lot of time in the studio in Stockholm. I always walk to the studio from the hotel, and I had this song on repeat. It’s weird how music can take you back to places and experiences! I remember how the autumn air in Stockholm smelled when I listen to this song.
Petit Biscuit “Oceans”
This guy is french, and his music sounds like eating french croissants by the french riviera. Mmmm.
Jai Paul – “jasmine (demo)”
This guy is a mystery. You should really check out his music! All of his songs are great.
Lorde – “Love Club”
This song is so underrated! It’s from Lorde’s debut album, Pure Heroine. It puts me in a really good mood, and I love how she’s used her vocals so much in the production. I feel like she was ahead of the vocal-sample-production trend.
