Combining infectious melodies with off-kilter production and deeply personal lyrics, Goss music plays with the boundaries of modern pop music. Goss’ new single ‘Blood’ is a love song about how emotions can hijack us leave us vulnerable to others. A statement of intent ahead of a new chapter, the track is truly experimental; a complete departure from his older work. ‘Blood’ blends experimental electronic and alt-pop with a Western groove Mads described as “something violent and unstoppable. Something super insistent. It is motivating to take something that is so historically rooted and try to do it in a new way. Take it into a new context where it takes on a completely different life.”
Danish artist Emil Wilk, better known as M.I.L.K. returns this summer with the lead single from his debut album.

After collaborating with French artists such as The Avener, Biolay, Nemir, Møme and many others, this time he teams up with COLORS alum Benny Sings. This is an effective alliance where we find a perfect mix of the sounds of these two artists. The distinctive sound of Benny Sings’ piano starts from the first seconds in a timeless stroll, before the soft voice of M.I.L.K. comes in and answers the groovy bass to give a unique touch to this song.

The aptly titled record is one of those rare moments where each track is essential in binding the body of work together; it’s an absolute must listen.
ML Buch is the moniker of Copenhagen-based composer and producer Marie Louise Buch, whose single ‘I Feel Like Giving You Things’, is quite frankly and experience to behold.

The lyrics and delivery of the message conveys honesty accompanied by a grandiose beat and production.
Of Danish-Tunisian descent, Elias Boussnina has just released his debut EP ’Shameboy’, which features contributions from UnoTheActivist and COLORS alum Lil Halima. The destructive impact of infatuation and addiction, whether to something or someone, is a reoccurring theme throughout ’Shameboy’. Elias’ hip-hop infused, soulful vocals are dropped over dramatic electro-synth beats which result in an irresistible brand of R&B that draws us in from the offset.
From the thriving area of Copenhagen called Nørrebro, you find a young woman named Selma Judith.

Her latest single “Inner Thigh” – which is aptly tattooed on the singer’s inner thigh – follows the same sonic path with its minimal, lo-fi R&B sounds carrying Judith’s enticing vocal lead.
Lillebittebock is a unique Danish artist breaking the conventions of hip-hop. With a breakthrough song about the suicide of his father when he was just 12 years old, the dark themes in the lyrics are accompanied by hyper-melodic, endorphin-filled beats. “Fortabt” (meaning “lost” in Danish), the rapper’s newest track, is a melancholy, emotive effort with a prominent guitar riff, describing the feeling of being caught in-between phases.
Danish trio CHINAH’s experimental R&B sound is delivered with artistic minimalism on their debut LP. Fine Glindvad, Simon Kjær and Simon Andersson originally formed in 2014 as a folk outfit before branching out and making waves with a number of dark synth-pop hits, drawing inspiration from off-kilter duo Smerz. Throughout the creative process behind “ANYONE”, lead singer Glindvad took the unorthodox approach of both writing and recording her vocals whilst fully horizontal on a sofa, capturing the natural fluidity and reflective intimacy that provides the essence of the album.
Danish synth-pop duo GENTS are uniting the retro energy of the 80’s with a forward-thinking approach to create emotional, futuristic music.

Danish band Barselona make smooth DIY-pop for every walk of teenage life. Rud Aslak and Rasmus Theodor met each other at an ‘efterskole’, a unique type of independent boarding school for young people between the age of 14 to 18, and together have risen to be one of the most promising duos in Danish music. Barselona’s tracks are characterised by slow-paced summery warmth, retro synth elements and vividly descriptive romantic storytelling about adventures in the sun. Their sophomore EP ‘Sommerkys’ (meaning ‘summer kiss’) adds extra layers of depth to their dream-like universe, with big things to come for the duo.
