One of my favourite Swedish artists, David Alexander or Summer Heart, recently released his new song ‘The Cross’ and it is as refreshing as all of his offerings.

His upbeat synth pop with melodic undertones, make for foot tapping, addictive listening. It conjurers up images of sunlight, summer and fun.  You can’t help but instantly feel happier when any Summer Heart song starts?

If you are a fan of Kygo, Madeon and Thomas Jack, you will be sure to love his offerings.

ps He also dropped a dreamy video for ‘Sleep’, last week. Watch it here!

Listen To This: Wait A Second

EBY

I recently came across EBY and promptly fell in love. His music is dreamy, ethereal and enchanting.

His remixes of Youth Lagoon, Emmelie de Forest are on constant rotation on my playlist and the Italian native recently teamed up with Wrenn to create a masterpiece.

The already phenomenal track was given a shimmering overhaul by TYMA, who hails from Oslo. The rework is glitchy, magical and haunting.

I can’t wait to hear more from both EBY and TYMA, expect big things from both!
