It’s been a while! It’s been half a decade since we last got a solo release out of Norwegian pop icon Bertine Zetlitz.
And now? She’s back. With brand-new single ‘Soft Hurt’.
What’s it like? An intriguingly composed marvel of a tune with a production that at first seems to be proceeding with caution so as to match the uncertainty spoken of within the lyrics, before evolving into a much more confident beat with echoes of house, and finally blossoming into a banging synthpop soundscape in time for the middle eight. A very welcome return from Bertine, all in all!
Written by? The artist herself, along with Jonas Lie Theis and Martin Sjøli.
You can find ‘Soft Hurt’ on our Best New Pop playlist.
