Norwegian artist Sonny Alven has today released his debut 3-track project titled Girls EP via Universal Music. Showcasing vocal talent from rising female Scandinavian singers Olivera, Cal and Ylva, the project highlights Sonny’s distinctive style – a huge part of which focuses around his love for collaborating with women.
Uplifting opener ‘Too Late to Love Me’ fuses punchy piano chords and a stomping bassline, underpinning Ylva’s soaring vocals. Speaking on his overall thoughts on the track, Sonny says: “Ylva delivers an amazing vocal performance, and I’m super happy with the way it all came together.”
‘Wasted Youth’ is the second track from the EP. The summery track merges Sonny’s signature sound with a rich vocal performance from Norwegian singer Cal.
Sonny brings Girls EP to a poignant close with ‘Your Touch’ which features the soft vocals of Finnish singer Olivera. Released at the start of the year, the emotionally-charged track has gained over 2 million Spotify plays to date.
Polished and well-rounded, Girls EP contextualises what Sonny has been building towards over the last few months.
Having gained a coveted Norwegian Grammy nomination for his single ‘Our Youth’ feat. Emmi last year, Sonny has had an impressive 2016. His musical creations have received major success in and out of the studio, allowing Sonny to remix tracks for high-profile artists such as Alesso, Tove Lo and Astrid S to critical acclaim. On the road, dance titan Kygo enlisted Sonny to support him on the European leg of his world tour, which saw the ‘Our Youth’ hitmaker perform sold-out shows at London’s Brixton Academy. Armed with these spectacular achievements, it’s certain that Sonny Alven will build on this incredible success in 2017.
