Who?! 17 year old Norwegian girl Chinook Lamers. Last year she shot to fame on Norwegian Idol, finishing in 3rd place. This week she releases her debut single ‘Dancing in Flames’.
What’s it like? A super catchy and uplifting pop track with a soulful undertone. The post-chorus is the best bit. Who doesn’t love a bit of familiar repetition in pop music?
Written by? Frida Amundsen and Varren Wade, and produced by Norwegian duo Loveless.
More from Chinook? ‘Dancing in Flames’ is her first proper single, but she did put out a song last year. As with Swedish Idol, the final lot from each season’s Norwegian Idol get to co-write, record and release a song of their own – as a week’s theme. Here is Chinook’s minimalist r&b ballad ‘Go Home’.
