Siamese are an award-winning, Danish, Pop-Metal band and following their previous album, Shameless, gained more than 8 million streams, catapulting them to recognition outside of Denmark, and enabling them to play sold out shows in Japan, UK and Germany.

Singer, Mirza Radonjica-Bang, said, “B.A.N.A.N.A.S, the album opener was actually written for the Shameless album. At least the starting riff was. But ultimately we were never satisfied with anything but the riff. We left it alone for two years before absolutely nailing it. One of my favourite tracks on the album for sure.”

This track showcases just how epic this band are – huge synth use, grungy guitars and metal drum patterns, all topped off with the wonderful sample of Gwen Stefani‘s ‘Hollaback Girl’ make this truly stand out! It’s a real genre-bending song that will appeal to people of all tastes from pop to metal.

Their next release, Super Human (out Friday 24th May), continues to showcase their trademark big choruses and well-written instrumental compositions; what’s more, it’s all self-produced!

Watch out for this band as they continue to go from strength to strength!

I am besotted with this song! I simply can’t get enough of it!

The opening instrumentation of this track just hooked me in instantly! Having recently collaborated with Major Lazer & DJ Snake on the track, Lean On, has just released a new solo single, ‘Kamikaze’.

MØ is a Danish singer who has been compared to the likes of Grimes, with her high-pitched, off-kilter vocals and unique sense of style. He name actually comes from the initials of her Middle and Surname, but in Danish, also mean ‘maiden’ or ‘virgin’.

This song was produced by Diplo and that’s not hard to tell, since he is a member of Major Lazer and they recently collaborated. The music video is also the perfect accompaniment, with it’s almost post-apocalyptic look and feel and it has been likened to M.I.A.’s video for her single, ‘Bad Girls’.

Does this song give you that #FeelGoodFriday feel? If not, please share your choice in a comment below or on our social medias. Have a good weekend guys; see you Monday!

Christopher is a Danish singer from Copenhagen.

I know little about him, as he’s relatively new to me, and I discovered this tune simply by looking for another song on Spotify, but this song is a true pop gem and I honestly believe will have him exploding onto the charts in no time!

The guy is now signed to a major label after he uploaded a cover of ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ by Robyn, to a great reception.

I want to hear more from this guy and hope his success in Denmark transpires over here – with a superb falsetto range and distinguishable vocal, it will be well deserved.

#FeelGoodFriday: Alphabeat – ‘Fascination’

Sure, this song is nearly a decade old and would be well-suited to a #ThrowbackThursday but it couldn’t be more appropriate for this #FeelGoodFriday!

Danish bubblegum pop band, Alphabeat released their first commercially successful single, ‘Fascination’, back in June 2008 to rather big success. The song reached Number 6 in the UK charts, and it epitomises everything pop; it’s got male and female vocals, big drums, funky guitars and a bit of an 80s and 90s pop edge to it.

Blare this song out loud and sing to your heart’s content…HAPPY FRIDAY everyone!
