Julie Bergan - Turn On the Lights (New album this week)

Discussion in 'Potential next big things' started by Lost Boy, Jan 13, 2017.

  1. Basically the Norwegian Zara Larsson but objectively better with better songs.


    Her new song 'Blackout' is a fucking dream, but it isn't on YouTube yet save for those awful 'here's a picture of a tree with the song in the background'.


    And if you can't be bothered to go through that link (She's a Spotify Queen, getting huge streams) then here's some old stuff.

  2. I like her. However, the new single, for me at least, is so generic and of the moment it could be absolutely anyone. It's not what I want from her or what she's capable of. Shame.

  3. I think it's her best yet.
  4. I want to like her but all her singles so far are so awfully generic that I can't. I'll take Zara or her roomie and bff Astrid S over her any day.
  5. It's good we all hear something different. I'm just pleased someone has joined me in this area of the forum!

  6. I too wanted DESPERATELY to love Blackout from what I'd read about it but it could be from any of the current young Euro female singers. It lacks identity I think.

    Interested to see what she does next though.

  7. Girl
  8. I need to get people listening and replying somehow...
  9. I love Blackout and I actually don't find it generic at all.....Especially the verses: dreamy, kind of Imogen Heap. I think it's a consistent progression from Arigato.

  10. She's grown so much through the year, each single gets better than the last, not only that but she's actually growing pretty successful in Finland and pulling in huge Spotify numbers. 'Blackout' reminds me of Carina Dahl's 'Burning' but is definitely more balls-to-the-wall pop.
  11. This acoustic/string version is 'Blackout' is SO good.

  12. As above once said the new single is A BOP

  13. A bit on the beige side, she does need better material.
  14. She needs better material and also a better thread title. Don't give her this unnecessary comparison!

  16. I love this song.
  17. I really like Incapable and have listened to it a bunch since I discovered it a week or two ago, but her others don't excite me quite as much. I probably just need to give them more time to sink in or something.

  18. Her voice is insane.
