Introducing Norwegian band Fieh and their new video, Glu - make it your track of the day
Fieh are a new Norwegian soul pop group fronted by 22 year old 22 year old Sofie Tollefsbøl. Their new track, 'Glu', isn't your usual Scandi-pop and offers a nice vibe to go along with the sugar coating. Surely a talent to watch in 2018.
Fieh present their debut single Glu, a laid-back yet concise pop song glazed with hypnotic jazz keys and lush strings. The track is out now on New York label Honeymoon (Anna of the North, Rejjie Snow), and comes complete with a video directed by Thomas Flatt, montaging everyday scenes of the band with a dreamlike sheen.
"Glu is about liberating yourself from what other people think. I wrote the song on a day when many older men had recently been telling me what I should do and not do when working on my music. It made me think "hmm I’m a 22 year old girl, how can you know what I should be doing? I'll have to do this my own way - and I guess I'll sing about it too." This has been our favourite song to play live for a loooong time, and now it’s finally out there with a video with help from a bunch of young, creative people like the amazing director Thomas Flått and our labels Honeymoon and Vibbefanger. No old men telling anyone what to do.”- Sofie Tollefsbøl
Fieh is a 9-person band led by Sofie Tollefsbøl, a 22 year old from a forest in Norway with barely 1000 inhabitants. Influenced by D’Angelo, Outkast, and Erykah Badu, Sofie started releasing her Garage band-produced demos on Soundcloud 3 years ago. Since then, her solo project has grown into a full blown band with backup singers, a drummer, a bassist, a guitarist, a trumpeter and a keyboardist, all fellow students in the jazz program at Norwegian Academy of Music.
