A new popstar for you all to get excited about based on how good her debut single is. Marlene, and ‘Bon Voyage’. From Stockholm.
As well as the tune itself being surprisingly catchy despite appearing quite subtle (see if you’re not howling “BON VOYAAAAGE, BONBON VOYAAAAGE” after listening to it), the intricacies in the production are a set of stunners themselves. The intro, the post-chorus thing after the first chorus, and then the middle eight. All divine. And the final 45 second climax is brilliant. The perfect “bon voyage” to ‘Bon Voyage’.
That’ll be another exciting new artist from Sweden, then. Politely bringing a superb tune with her to the party.
The video is a beauty too;
