Great News’ new single «Diamonds»? It is released on Monday on local label «Eget Selskap» that has O.Martin (AURORA) on their roster amongst others. You can stream the song below.
Hailing from Bergen, Norway, Great News are on everyones lips these days. They are in the same thriving music scene as other local bands like AURORA, Kings of Convenience, Royksopp, KAKKMADDAFAKKA, dePresno, Datarock and Casiokids, even though local producer Kygo has been the one who’s been getting the most attention world wide lately.
Great News has had a lot going their way since they started playing together in March 2015. Their first show ever was sold out (250 cap), and their third show ever at a local festival was so good they received 6/6 stars from GAFFA Magazine. The band has also supported Unknown Mortal Orchestra since they started up under a year ago.
The trio has been getting a lot of attention in Norway, and they’re booked to several festivals with just two singles released.
Great News about the song:
– The mood we’re trying to get across with the song is kind of the same feeling of slipping on ice. You can’t fight it, you have to accept that you’re losing control. It’s also like watching the world through a diamond. You’ll se many sides of the same reality, and you’ll be seduced by the illusion.
