Greighwolfe – ‘Physical’

A free download and a NSFW video – it’s bound to work! ‘Physical’ is the new free download single from Greighwolfe, a track which drips with atmosphere and veers from electronica, through pop to an almost indie sound once it all kicks in. Check out the video and if you like what you hear grab it now from Soundcloud.

New single from NuBorg, all about ‘You You’

Light and subtle, but with hidden depths, ‘You You’ is the latest single from NuBorg’s upcoming album ‘Sliding Off the Edge of the World’. The single is outnow, one of series of singles from the album being released on the 15th of each month until the album is released in full in August

With comparisons to the likes of Kate Bush after her last single, this one is more in the pop vein of Christina Aguilera (minus the vocal histrionics). The message, about finding strength in just being yourself, is a beautiful one (ahem).

New single from NuBorg – ‘Sliding off the Edge of the World’ out now

The latest single in a project releasing an album track by track on the 15th of each month

Based in Norway, NuBorg is the new project from Norwegian singer-songwriter Gunhild Nyborg. Currently in the process of releasing her debut album track by track on the 15th of each month, the latest track ‘Sliding Off the Edge of the World’ is out now.

Brilliantly produced and dominated by a haunting vocal, the track is built on the dynamic lifts and falls of the verses and choruses, as well as a highly melodic bassline. You can hear it for yourself here:

With a wide ranging approach to songwriting, NuBorg has been compared to a wide range of artists including the likes of Kate Bush, Massive Attack and Portishead. And though her songs might be versatile there are two things that tie them together – her thoughtful lyrics and her strong vocal delivery.

The monthly releases have seen NuBorg work with a host of top writers. February single ‘I Lie A Lot’ was co-written with Christopher Neil (Mike & The Mechanics co-founder), while next month’s track ‘You You’ involved established pop hit writers Martin Sutton (LeAnn Rimes, Backstreet Boys) and Ron Roker (Tina Charles).

Captured at Waterfall Studios in Oslo, the singles/album are produced by experienced muso Odd Harald Jensen, who drums for the band Babel Fish and also co-wrote one of the songs on Ronan Keating’s last album. Jensen is also collaborating on one of the upcoming singles on the NuBorg project – set for release in June or July.

The final single will be released on August 15th, when the album will be available to hear in full for the very first time.

All very impressive work from a single mum who has been fighting a serious illness over the last few years. Having won that battle, NuBorg is now grateful to be alive – Gunhild sums up the hard work best herself:

“I am grateful for being able to make this music real, make it come out of my head and out through the loudspeakers. I have had this sound inside me for the longest time and I have worked on learning music production, songwriting, and vocal techniques in order to be able to make it real.” NuBorg
