Who? Icelandic artist David Ólafsson. AKA DAVID44. This is his new single ‘Truth’.
What’s it like? When deep-house merges into soul-pop. Think of the massive number 1 from Calvin Harris & Sam Smith, ‘Promises’. This is the same kind of sound and style, but with an icy Nordic air breathed into it.
What does David say? “It’s about speaking the truth but also how reality and words can be twisted by the one hearing it. It’s about having a misunderstood self-image, not believing in yourself or accepting your true self. These can be very dangerous thoughts and I wrote ‘Truth’ to boost the missing self-esteem.”
More from David? This is the first single from his forthcoming debut album. But he’s released four other singles previously, all of which you can find on his Spotify page.
