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.
