Norway | Emma Steinbakken - "Sorry"


Norwegian singer Emma Steinbakken comes solo! Her new single is "Sorry", a contemporary pop track with intense beats and a nostalgic underlying feeling.

As Emma explained, the song is "about a relationship with my ex. He's a great guy who instantly fell in love with me when we first met. I had a crush on him, but I wasn't smitten by him despite him being funny, handsome and very kind. My mum thought he was gorgeous, all my friends loved him, everyone around me wanted us to be a couple, which resulted in me feeling guilty. I secretly hoped that I was gradually going to be in love with him, but it didn't happen. To get rid of the crippling feeling of guilt, but also to clarify why I had to end our fling, I wrote 'Sorry'".

Norway | Hanne Mjøen - "Emotional fever"


Time to remeet Norwegian talent Hanne Mjøen! She has recently released the single "Emotional fever", in which she delivers a growing gem of synth pop, wonderfully wrapped around her unique vocals.

Hanne says that she "wrote this song with the thought of having mixed feelings about someone, and not being able to decide if the person is right for you or not. One moment it feels like forever, and the next you get a panic attack and you just want to leave. And it feels like a fever because of the sudden changes you have no control over".

Denmark | KOPS feat. Emelie Hollow - "If not you then who"


KOPS is a 22-year-old multi-talented musician from Copenhagen. He has invited the also talented Emelie Hollow, born in Norway, to record his song "If not you then who". It's a beautiful ballad that explores the talents of both of them in wonderful ways. They both do magic with their voices, especially when together!

"This is a song about that one person in your life who can't be replaced. Your mom or dad, an ex, a good old drinking buddy, your math teacher in high school or the guy at the grocery store – that special someone, who eventually came into your life and changed it. If this song was a movie, I guess it'd be a proper tear jerker! Well, at least, I got emotional writing it and having Emelie singing the words with me literally made it the emotional pop anthem I think we both hoped it would be", says KOPS.
