One of our favourite singer-songwriters in Scandinavian pop music, Hanne Sørvaag, has a new single out.

It’s the follow-up to February’s ‘You’re Like A Melody’, which scandipop readers will all know from its participation in Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix this year. We still love that song to bits and probably always will. And in 2011 alone, she’s also brought us a couple of other songs as a songwriter, which are both receiving heavy rotation on the scandipop.co.uk iPod – Same Difference’s ‘The Rest Is History’, and Shontelle’s ‘Say Hello To Goodbye’.

The new single is called ‘Bring Me Down’, and it doesn’t stray too far away from ‘You’re Like A Melody’ territory. It’s bright and breezy pop. Mid-tempo and with a hint of the eighties about it – musically it has large echoes of Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Time After Time’, especially the beats during the verses, and the synths which appear only once at the end of the first chorus.

Two listens in, and we’re officially ON BOARD with this!
