Swedish songstress Beatrice Eli launched her debut single ‘The Conquerer’ over in the UK last week, but with the international spotlight beginning to turn in her direction, we thought we’d give you the inside word.
Beatrice is already being compared to the likes of other Scandinavian pop goddesses including Oh Land, Lykke Li and even Robyn, combining raw, emotive lyrics with fresh, cutting-edge production.
She possesses an old-school soul vocal that just begs to be heard and when it’s combined with the future-pop instrumentation and an explosive, albeit brief chorus, ‘The Conquerer’ can do no more but weave its intriguing charms upon you.
Most certainly one to watch in 2012. No word yet on an Australian release, but if you love it lots, there’s a little mash-up that’s available as a free download. You’ll find that HERE. You’re welcome.
