Who? Swedish songwriter Linnea Södahl. She’s launching as an artist under a new moniker, Nea. And this is her debut single and video, ‘Some Say’.
What’s it like? A super-sweet pop ditty that’s catchy as sin – namely because of the melody it borrows from Eiffel 65’s monster late-’90s hit.
What does Nea say? “We wrote the song after a conversation with a friend of ours. He is gay and is in love with his friend, but this friend is in a straight relationship. The song is about love that you can’t attain but that you can’t give up on.”
More from Nea? She’s previously written tunes for Amanda Fondell, GRANT, SHY Martin, Linnea Henriksson and Zara Larsson – most notably, Zara’s biggest hit to date, ‘Lush Life’.
