Despite All Crazy Marks the Nordic Songwriters Return..
Scandinavian pop & electronic music has always had a certain place in our hearts and Oslo-based songwriter Paria cements that love with her new single ‘Despite All Crazy’.
Originally from Iran, the talented songwriter-producer has built a reputation in her native Oslo as a formidable producer songwriter, drawing from elements of trap, pop & electronic to build her own brand of sounds.
“Growing up, I’ve been exposed to a lot of music since both of my parents where traditional Iranian musicians. I never quite felt like that kind of music was the one I wanted to make, I’ve been moving to different places all my life so I have never had a place I felt 100% at home and I don’t feel like I belong to a certain place, culture or society, this has been shaping my personality and life in a way that is more diverse and mobile than others. This also reflects on my music keeping in mind that music is a huge part of my life.”
The new single ‘Despite All Crazy’, draws on elements of all the above influences. There’s the obvious pop hook in there, but listening closely also draws elements of a flume-esque synth layer and a hide electronic influence. Listen to ‘Despite All Crazy’ below
