it’s a Project that’s Rich with Analogue Nuance
Norwegian alt-pop riser Solå has been turning heads over the past few months with her uniquely retro-leaning, powerful alt-pop music. So far having dropped two singles from the EP, she’s now returned with the full project ‘Feel What I Feel’. Perfectly leaning on elements of pop, electronica and synthwave – it’s a glorious project that’s sure to take you back to the hazy, analogue 80’s sounds.
Co-written with frequent collaborator Vetle Junker (Aurora, Softcore untd.) and mixing helmed by Matias Tellez (Boy Pablo, Girl In Red) – The release has a truly distinctive sound that beautifully frames Solå’s songwriting. Tracks such as ‘Feel What I Feel’ take on a Christine & The Queens style upbeat pop persona, where tracks such as ‘Last Lines’ rely on a pulsating 80’s groove perfect for fans of Robyn. Speaking on her scintillating new EP, she states:
My Debut-Ep is best described as the different stages of heartbreak. From Feel What I Feels description of wanting to stay in the lovefeeling to Cant You See´s hurtful feeling of not feeling adequate, to B Mines feeling of being comfortable on your own, to Last Lines, the last goodbye.
For me it was important to understand my own thoughts and feelings, and its been a huge help writing about it. Now it is yours, and you may read the songs as you please.
