SAVEUS | DENMARK
The last few years have been busy for SAVEUS, the 23 year old Danish producer, songwriter and vocalist Martin Hedegaard. Having toured Europe as support for Years & Years, signed a record deal with Universal as well as packing out venues and topping charts in his native Denmark, SAVEUS is now set to take on the world. In the summer of 2016, SAVEUS released the song ‘Everchanging’ which became a huge hit on Danish radio. It was followed up by a stunning performance in front of a packed stage at Roskilde Festival in Denmark.
Amanda Delara is one of the most exciting new artists to surface this year. Raised in small-town Nes in Norway, she began playing piano in early childhood and as a young teenager she decided to write her own music. Amanda attended no music schools but her household had many classical instruments, so she taught herself to play piano and violin. Early cover songs and uploading music to social media platforms made the team behind Nico & Vinz aware of her talents and signed her to their own indie label GR:OW Records in Norway.
Violet Days is built around Sweden native singer/songwriter Lina Hansson, who has been creating a buzz ever since releasing the confessional, soaring past-love-song ”So Dope” in the summer of 2015. Violet Days is now continuing her inevitable ascent with the release of ”O.D On You”, and further upcoming songs which will not only make you dance, but feel.
“The dashing Swedes are led by Lina Hansson, with their pop-heavy sound matching gorgeous melodies to lyrics that cut right to the bone.” – Clash Magazine
