Julie Bergan – Blackout (Original Mix)
Where Scandinavia was an early adopter of taking electronic music into the pop world, a recent swell of Norwegian talent has been taking polished pop back into the modern era. Electronic pop prospect Julie Bergan grew alongside the likes of familiar Norwegian cohort and ample dance collaborator Astrid S, but took a whole new peak in her output with 2016’s international hit “Arigato.”
Back in the driving seat with “Blackout,” the edgy Scandinavian artist channels futurist trap undertones for her latest soaring vocal number, packing all the emotive punch we have come to expect from Bergan whilst framing herself as a middle-woman to the future bass and pop worlds once again. Julie Bergan’s balance is one being consistently held right now, setting expectations for the year ahead considerably high along the way.
