Broen – Boy

Broen / New music

Now this is very cool. Admittedly I’m a little late to the party here, but Norwegian outfit Broen are here to shake things up. Genre-bending new single ‘Boy’ is stupendously hard to define. Bringing in elements of African music, to a palette of Scandinavian pop, all tied together with some irresistibly skewed songwriting touches. Apparently the song is “about an ex-boyfriend that [lead vocalist- Marianna Røe] had a strong love/hate relationship with,” going on to divulge that the relationship turned out to actually be “just hate. – It’s basically about feeling so taken aback by someone’s actions that you feel like a cartoon.” An interesting story, behind a very interesting song. Very excited to hear more from this bunch of Norwegian experimentalists. Get lost in ‘Boy’ below.
