Who? 23-year-old Bård Mathias Bonsaksen from Sandefjord in Norway. He’s now calling himself BAARD, and has just released his debut single. ‘You Keep Calling’.
What’s it like? A slinky and soulful opening soon gives way to a pounding piano-house anthem by the time the first chorus rolls around. And with that, we were hooked.
Written by? BAARD, Ina Wroldsen and Sivert Hjeltes Hagtvet.
More from BAARD? This is his first release as an artist, but he’s previously written big tunes for other artists: ‘Strongest’ by Ina Wroldsen, ‘Lie To Me’ by Steve Aoki and ‘Favourite Regret’ by Peder Elias.
