Scandinavian Folk Songs Reinvented for Today’s Listeners

Scandinavian Folk Songs Reinvented for Today’s Listeners

American songwriter G. Victoria Campbell and Swedish electronic music producer MoEoStAr have collaborated to revive public domain Scandinavian folk songs and have come up with something quite unique and special. The first song to be released by the duo is called Unrequited Love.

Unrequited Love takes the Swedish folk song “Visa från Utanmyra” and turns it on its head while retaining the original theme of the song. With a pulsing bass line, increased tempo and anthemic pop vocal on top of traditional jazz instrumentation, the result is a funky disco house tune that doesn’t quite fit in any one box, but will certainly keep listeners coming back for more. Some have described the track as “Donna Summers meets Kool and the Gang meets Dave Brubeck.”

The track will be released in all digital stores and streaming platforms on Friday, April 8th 2022.
