Norwegian artist/crooner Unge Ferrari ie the undisputed reigning king of Norwegian r’n’b returns with second single “Balkong” from his upcoming debut album “Midt Imellom Magisk Og Manisk” (due to be released November 30th via Nora Collective), on the track he sheds light on another side of the often glamorously portrayed life of an artist:
“Leaning over the edge, balcony, balcony, 19th floor, can I fly if I fall? Balcony, balcony”, he sings over a pompous piano beat, with an emotional, almost Edith Piaf like vibe (produced by Aksel “Axxe” Carlson). The track in some ways summarizes the tragedies surrounding artists and their challenges within the mental health landscape.
This fine Friday morning, I am pleased to present some sauce from fika with his latest single “High.’ “High” is a dreamy, romantic cut with easy, jazz-inspired melodies and soul-drenched vocals. I can assure that this tune will be on constant rotation in my good vibes playlists, as it should be yours as well.
LA-based alt r’n’b artist TOLLIVER released his debut EP “Rites” via https://www.facebook.com/iceaofficial/“>Icons Creating Evil Art recently and now the first single off the EP “I Gotchu” receives a superb sounding remix treatment from acclaimed Swedish producer Saturday, Monday.
“What I love about the original track is that it is very ’visual’ and that the appeal lies in its form. So I knew that I didn’t want to just loop up a section and put some drums on it but rather try to expand the theme further having Tchaikovsky’s ‘Swan Lake’ and Berry Jenkins’ film ’Moonlight’ in mind” – Saturday, Monday
“Saturday, Monday brought a powerful humanity and curiosity to my song about my estranged brother. The woodwinds, the tastefully done beat; it’s a vision I didn’t see coming but now can’t live without” – Tolliver
The remix sees Saturday, Monday spin off a simple yet hypnotizing beat against Tollivers moodfelt lyrics dealing with an estranged brother.
