“I am an alien, born in a human body. I come from the planet Pluto, but was born in Nakskov”. This is how the Danish artist Faunea, with the bourgeois name Natasja, describes herself and her dark Electronic universe fit this image perfectly. After releasing a few singles throughout 2021, she will release her first EP ‘No Filter In My Unbreakable Neon Crab Heart’ today.
The contrast between feeling like someone who belongs on another planet, but in fact being born and raised in a small city on the countryside of Denmark, is to that extent also expressed in her vocals. One moment it manages to appear clear and fragile until shortly after leaning against the dark and heavy beats that characterize her music.
The contrast in her music is clear to be heard on her latest singles ‘CRZY’, ‘Addicted’ and ‘Psycho Love’, that all will be featured on the new EP. The single releases has been well received both in- and outside of Denmark, with airplay and interview on Danish National Radio P3, attention from medias such Bands of Tomorrow, Good Because Danish and Alfitude.
With the release of ‘No Filter In My Unbreakable Neon Crab Heart’, Faunea states this is just the beginning of her career. While finishing the EP, she have had several writing sessions with producers to crate songs for the next chapter of her musical career.
Today Danish artist Faunea once agains invites you into her dystopian pop-universe when she releases the single ‘Addicted’. Back in January she released the single ‘CRZY’ which, among other things, gave her airplay on Danish National Radio. Together with ‘Addicted’, these two singles makes the foundation of her upcoming debut-EP.
Based on her first single, Faunea has made a name for herself in several places on the Danish upcoming music scene, including performances at Uhørt Festival as well as airplay on Danish National Radio P3. She lately also released the track ‘Sound of Breaking’ which have a vital part of the Netflix series Tiny Pretty Things.
With a handful of well-executed singles as well as performance at a number of prominent festivals, such as Roskilde Festival and in addition with airplay on Danish National Radio P3, ELBA has slowly started claiming herself a place as one of the most promising Danish pop artists at the moment. The single ‘Sirens’ is out today.
ELBA wrote the song ‘Sirens’ to process the everyday sexism she herself has been subjected to and celebrates that it has become acceptable to speak up about it.
“Sirens has been important to me to both write and releasing because it’s a way I can process my own prejudice, especially the sexism in myself have been exposed to. The song is a celebration of the fact that the boundaries of what is acceptable have shifted and still are, so that one can now be allowed to speak up.”
Since her debut one the single ‘Oohla Oohla Oohla’ back in 2019, there has been relatively quiet from the Danish electronic pop artist Faunea. However, time has been spent writing her debut EP, and today she releases the single ‘CRZY’.
‘CRZY’ is a song about feeling trapped in a life that is “too perfect”. When Faunea wrote the song during a writing trip to LA, she was in a relationship at the time that was just that. She could no longer feel herself in what had simply become a long straight line of perfection and from this the song ‘CRZY’ came out.
Based on her first single, Faunea has made a name for herself in several places on the Danish upcoming music scene, including performances at Uhørt Festival as well as airplay on Danish National Radio P3.
