Introducing: Soleima

SoleimaSoleima, aka Copenhagen based musician Sarah Mariegaard follows a long line of Danish artists who are successfully pushing the urban cool pop bracket. Mariegaard, however, has a few tricks up her sleeve. Blending the kind of vocal you might have found on a Basement Jaxx track cerca 1999 with blistering beats and dance floor lightening, this rising pop power is already attracting attention from all the right places.

Good music isn't the only thing this young artist has on her side. Soleima recently collaborated with music director Maya SB, who has put together a piece for new single "My Boi" which is inspired by artificial intelligence and graphic manipulation. She says of the short: "With the video we tried to establish a feeling of suddenly finding yourself floating amongst the clouds without any kind of grounding sense of reality. Soleima has become a virtual figure stripped of humanity and controlled by a computer."

Soleima is taking things one step further with a full online attack scheduled throughout the year, starting in April with her self released live session video. With her debut EP due out in Autumn 2015, you can guarantee this won't be the last you hear of Mariegaard.
