Sweden’s Rebecca Bergcrantz aka RAINDEAR has made quite an international impression so far, featuring in publications such as Billboard, Noisey, Mojo and The Fader with her last release Diamonds In My Chest. Her reflective take on the Scandi sound is sure to win her more new friends and fans with the release of her latest single Sky.
There’s a very fresh feel to Sky, much of which is down to the vocals as they take to the heavens and bring the listener along for the ride. Gliding serenely and beatifically as if on skating on ice, the ethereal feel of the vocals is kept in touch with reality thanks to a pulsating bassline, banks of woozy synths and punchy percussion that shows RAINDEAR may sing like an angel, but she’s not afraid to mix with more worldly affairs.
Sky is out now, you can stream it and more of RAINDEAR’s excellent back catalogue including the wonderful Embers album over on Spotify. Be sure to keep an eye on her Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts for news on new releases and live dates!
