hanna ögonsten – “Bang My Head”
Swedish artist hanna ögonsten‘s debut single “Bang My Head” is indie-pop with thunderous energy. The song was written and produced alongside Darius Kaya and Timothy Caifeldt. Its heavy electric guitars perfectly complements hanna’s forthright lyrics. She notes, “I easily attach myself to characters, songs and stories that have a darker side to it. I like when the sight is kind of rough but the depth is fragile, I think that reflects life. I want to create sounds and songs based on that and the feelings I’ve carried on through life, they mainly contain love or memories.‘’

Dolores Forever – “Baby Teeth”
London-based band Dolores Forever return with another track which is as blissful as their previous single, “Party In My Mind“. The new song is called “Baby Teeth” and carries sonic influences from the 90s. It is out via Sweat Entertainment/Official Music DK. Speaking about this reassuring song, Doloreves Forever said: “‘Baby Teeth’ is a message to our younger selves, who thought they knew nothing, and probably didn’t, but that’s OK. We still don’t really, but at least we’ve grown out of the painful urge to transform every aspect of our character to be liked. This is an ode to that cocktail of insecurity and bravado of youth, saying don’t worry so much, you’re just fine, go live your life and learn who you are.”
