Hugely exciting artist ahoy. Hailing from Bergen in Norway, please meet Hanne Vatnøy. After releasing an album back in 2011, and not much else since then, she now returns with a brand new single ‘Elysium’. It’s a sugar coated synthpop gem with a subtle nod to both ABBA and Laleh. It’s a brilliant, one-listen-and-you-get-it kind of affair. The video was premiered this morning over on 730.no (they herald her as Bergen’s answer to Susanne Sundfør), and you can have a gander of it below.
You can find ‘Elysium’ on our Best New Synthpop playlist.
