#WildCardWednesday: Julie Bergan – ‘Kiss Somebody’ (with Seeb)

Julie Bergan rose to recognition by releasing a series of covers on YouTube, at the age of 16, eventually signing a deal with Warner Music Norway in 2013.

This particular song (‘Kiss Somebody’) was actually released a year ago, in January 2020 and saw Bergan team up with Norwegian production duo, Seeb.

The song itself uses vocal distortions to make part of the backing beat (with the lyrics, “Make out with her, Make out with him”) alongside other traditional EDM-style components. It’s a banging anthem that begs to be danced to.

The video is fun too and features various couples kissing (including a gay couple), interspersed with shots of Bergan performing with a group of back-up dancers as well as by herself.

This synthpop meets EDM banger is the perfect track for #WildCardWednesday, as Bergan has yet to break into the UK market but I’m sure it won’t be long before she becomes more of a household name over here, if this track is anything to go by.

What are your thoughts of this synthpop banger? Do you have a #WildCardWednesday track to recommend us? Please leave your thoughts or song suggestions in a comment or via social media.

Having supported All Saints on their UK tour in 2016 and released a couple of hit singles, I chatted to up-and-coming, Norwegian pop singer, Hanne Leland about her upcoming plans.

We talked about her upcoming single, ‘You Don’t Own Me’ (out 09/06/17), discussed what inspires her music, found out what chocolate bar she’d be and considered her grandmother’s good advice. It’s all here…

Thanks so much to Hanne for taking the time to chat to us and to Bjørnar for setting up this interview.



Hanne Leland‘s releases are all available:

We’ve featured Matoma before (quite recently) but he’s back with one hell of an upbeat belter; this time featuring the legendary Sean Paul, plus the awesome and talented KStewart.

The Norwegian tropical house producer (aka Tom Stræte Lagergren) has now released a string of singles and remixes, and must be gearing up to drop an album soon, but in the meantime, this single has got me anticipating his future releases and collaborations! I mean, Sean Paul is a pretty big collaborator to have on board and KStewart is an incredible, upcoming songstress.

What do you think of this great song? Got you in the mood for summer? Have you got any similar #FeelGoodFriday tracks for us? Please share your thoughts and song suggestions in a comment below or via our social media accounts.

Matoma – ‘Running Out’ featuring Astrid S

Matoma is a Norwegian DJ and producer, known mostly for his tropical house sound.

Recently, Matoma (aka Tom Stræte Lagergren) remixed songs for the likes of One Direction, Marlon Roudette and Eminem.

This song was released back in 2015 and is a massive tropical house anthem but I’ve only just discovered it. It’s gaining popularity on the club circuits and is a tune!


‘Running Out’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/running-out-single/id1060167412



Zara Larsson – Lush Life

Zara Larsson is a Swedish singer-songwriter known for winning the 2008 equivalent of Sweden’s Got Talent (Talang).

She recently worked with MNEK on a massive hit of 2015, Never Forget You.

This solo song is due out this Friday and the video is pretty cool too (check it out below)!

I love her sound and her voice is quite similar to Rihanna‘s but there’s something interesting about her sound.


‘Lush Life’ is on available to pre-order on iTunes and is due out on 15/01/16 – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/lush-life-single/id1004250582
