Bearson track premiere, Nico & Vinz affair, Biennale praise and the Nordic Playlist – it’s the Music Norway’s Week in Review.

Vogue premieres new Bearson track

Hot—tipped tropical house phenom Bearson has teamed up with Mark Johns to create a new catchy affair; ‘Imposter’. Earlier this week, the track was premiered by Vogue who wrote: – ‘Imposter’ is infectious with its airy loops and slightly throaty vocals, which lull and swell into an aural, iridescent ocean of high summer dream-pop bliss. Crack open a bottle of rosé, throw this on the boat’s speakers, and savor the sweet, slow drift into the sunset.

The Norwegian pavilion at the Venize Biennale was unveiled last week. One of the main events was the premiere of Norway-based artist Camille Norment’s multi-sensory work ‘Rapture’. Artsy has visited the pavilion and came back excited about Norment’s work: ‘ The clear knockout of the Giardini, Norway takes over the Nordic Pavilion with Camille Norment’s aptly named Rapture, a gorgeous sonic and architectural landscape of broken glass panes and giant microphone-like speakers that emit the soothing, penetrating drone of music composed on a glass harmonica.’
