#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.

Matoma – ‘False Alarm’ featuring Becky Hill

We’ve featured Matoma before with his previous singles, Paradise and Running Out, and he’s back with another epic tune.

Becky Hill‘s vocals on this track are immense (and reminiscent of Ella Eyre) and just husky, crackly and powerful in all the right ways.

Matoma‘s production is incredible, as usual, and contains the perfect mixture of pop and tropical house.

This is surely THE song of the summer!


‘False Alarm’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/false-alarm-single/id1125071058



Troye Sivan – ‘WILD’ featuring Alessia Cara

Troye Sivan is an Australian singer who was born in Africa. He has also been known for his acting and YouTube videos, as well as his music.

Although this song was released back in September 2015, I’ve only just picked it up now and it’s awesome! The vocals are incredible, the lyrics are great and the track is well-produced!

Also, Alessia Cara is blowing up in the UK right now and so she is a great addition to the track too!
