And who do we have here? Next To Neon is the brand new artist project from Swedish singer and songwriter Rasmus Viberg. You may well recall his band Moment being responsible for some seriously good tunes over the past couple of years. Well now he’s all set to make some more seriously good tunes, all on his lonesome. As Next To Neon. The first single is out today – ‘Looking At You’.
What does Rasmus say about it? ”Doing a solo career is something I’ve been thinking about for a long time and it feels amazing to finally be releasing the debut. I’ve been playing in bands for my entire music career and it’s super cool to finally release music as a solo act, making my own decisions and working with songs that feel like a part of myself.”
What does Scandipop say about it? A glorious synthpop number that sounds like it’s been ripped straight from the eighties. The kind of song that would soundtrack your most beloved eighties film and have a special place in your heart forever.
You can find ‘Looking At You’ on our Best New Synthpop playlist.
