LISTEN: The Northern Belle - No Rush (ft. Siv Jakobsen & Louien)

When I saw this in my inbox, it had all the hallmarks of a track I might well fall in love with. One of my favourite PR companies, and a feature from an artist I admire who brought out one of my favourite records of 2020. For this one, we're taking a trip to Norway for some stunning three-part harmonies reminiscent of The Staves and I See Rivers. Tromso-via-Oslo septet The Northern Belle are a new name for me, and on this one singer-songwriter Stine Andreassen has fellow Nordic songstresses Siv Jakobsen and Louien (another new name to me - but one I'm excited to hear more from) joining her. The result, as harmonic as it is heavenly, reflects a line sung by Siv in the track - "one is only as strong as all of us combined." 

No Rush is the first track from the group since last year's album We Wither, We Bloom, and Stine explains how "it felt very important to share this song with someone I look up to musically, especially after being isolated for so long. To be together about something, and to be able to comfort one another is essential."
