Words: Saam Das
As opening efforts go, London-based Swede STORME's debut EP ranks up there with one of the most impressively confident collection of songs that we've heard in quite some time. Listen to the atmospheric electronic-based pop of 'Rootless' below, produced by Three Trapped Tigers/Emperor Yes drummer Adam Betts.
Kicking off the three track EP comes the pulsating 'Brave', most like the Scandi-pop of her homeland, an anthemic monster befitting of an Elliphant or a MØ. 'Back To The Water' twinkles along, amid vivacious wailing vocals, while EP closer 'Soldier' soars in a rousing fashion akin to a feistier Florence And The Machine.
We have seen very little written about STORME thus far, and she's still mastering her craft, but it shouldn't be too long before you start to hear a lot more about her. We'll put five krona on it.
