You have to remember Signe Eide from my post late last year, she’s the Norwegian songbird who thrilled us all with her songwriting and her vocals. It was she who introduced us to the Nordic Pop Noir style.

She is certainly getting around lately, recently she appeared at SXSW and this Thursday she is going to be at the Piknik i Parken 2017 at the wonderful Frognerparken and Vigeland-musset in Oslo. I loved that park, when I used to live there it was a favorite spot.

Meantime I have been keeping an eye open for any new releases and lucky us I have found a new release.

SIgne Eide has just released her new single which I am currently enjoying to no end.
Signe tells me “This was recorded spontaneously in one day in Greenpoint, NYC after returning from playing at SXSW festival.”
Signe is back in form, not that she ever wasn’t, as my favorite purveyor of Nordic Pop Noir and now with an added touch of Americana. Must be that SXSW rubbing off on her.
Liar

Release date 16.06.2017
Schnux Records
Producer: Shane O’Connell, Signe Eide
All instruments by Signe Eide & Shane O’Connell
Braund Studios, Greenpoint/Brooklyn, NYC 21.03.2017
Additional mix: BowLar Apartments by Bowitz/Larsen
Mastering: Martin Bowitz, Strype Audio.

And then, after further searching I found this gem, released about eight hours ago. A live performance, in Oslo, in a Sofar recording. They do a great job with their recordings of newer talent.
Signe in full power voice on this track at times, and yet still has time to include the amazing vibrato.  I am really enjoying this track, the title track from her most recent EP.

On the previous post i featured a pre-release copy of this track, at the time I said “It is beautiful in its despair”, I think I’ll stick by that. It truly is beautiful.
This is a live version @ SubScene Oslo with Elice Sauge, Alice Lewin, Mathilde Degland & Torkel Skaug.

We’re back on the trail of amazing talent from Scandinavia, and there is plenty of it. Case in point.
Signe Eide is an amazing talent from Oslo, Norway.
She is not yet 20 and you will be blown away with her songwriting skills, not to mention her beautiful vocals.
Signe Eide is backed by her equally talented band:
Alice Lewin, kor (chorus)
Elise Sauge, cello
Mathilde Degland, trommer (drums)
Torkel Skaug, bass

To appreciate what a go getter this young lady is you have to hear this story.
Back in 2013 when she was only sixteen, she had a problem. She wanted to see Lissie in concert at the Sentrum in Oslo. The problem is they have a strict age limit, you must be 18 to see a concert there. So she came up with an amazing solution, I’ll let her tell it.

“I decided to ask her directly on Facebook if I could play for her, so I could be let in at the concert” said 16-year-old.
This is the message she sent to Lissie:
“This is perhaps a little Cuckoo-ish, but let it go: Lissie, you have a show in Oslo November 9. The venue has 18 year age limit … Since I’m a 16 year old Oslo-girl underwriting, singin ‘and playing my own songs – this is the best solution: A small support gig for you – then the Sentrum Scene will look me in. I have already Played that many minor venues in Oslo, but my big dream has always been to play for you … I sing for you, you sing for me …? Deal? ” ~ She wrote to world star on Facebook.
To her surprise, she got a positive response.
She sent me an email that said “Your voice is beautiful. Would you like to open in Oslo? “
I was quite shocked! Consider that Lissie sent me an email!

So she played that concert, and hasn’t looked back.

First up we are gonna check out the new release from Signe Eide.
From the slapping of the bass to the awesome voice this is one hell of a record. Beautiful beyond belief. Pure dark popnoir.
Heaven (is no paradise for those who wish to die)
