In January 18 year old BRÍET released her first single 'In Too Deep' which has gained her a good amount of attention worldwide and followed up with her debut EP '22.03.99' on her birthday few weeks later. The music would be described as a mixture of R&B and Electro-pop which soothingly get's under your skin and won't leave you unsatisfied. Her gig at Gold Dust on May 23rd will be her first performance in the U.K. Make sure you don't miss it. She's definitely going places!
LOVA (real name Lova Alvilde) is a 19-year-old singer songwriter who’s been singing and playing piano her whole life, and has studied at Stockholm’s prestigious Rytmus Music School where alumni include Robyn, Tove Lo and Icona Pop. She wrote her first song at the age of seven and signed with Universal Music Sweden one year ago. Since then she has been in the studio writing and discovering her own sound.
LOVA is exactly the sort of young, outspoken female artist 2018 needs and deserves. “I definitely want to be a role model for younger girls because I know how hard it can be,” she says. “Role models should make mistakes and own up to them and grow from them. You're human.” This acknowledgement of her flaws is laid bare on the ludicrously catchy new single Insecurities. Unafraid to sing about important issues, but with a lightness of touch that never comes across as preachy, LOVA's rapidly carving out a niche for herself as Sweden's best pop export. Her brand of emotional pop music feels classic. It's not about chasing trends, or chucking in today's go-to sonic signifier for the sake of it, this is minimalistic, organic pop that is truly universal. At the heart of it all is a proper star.
