In our second Norwegian post of the day: we’re huge fans of Mr Little Jeans here (aka Monica Birkenes, the lass above, not an actual mister). There’s a very long and amusing blurb on her Facebook page about pop that dances left of centre and ancestry in catamarans, but honestly it’s all rendered irrelevant when the tunes start playing.
Birkenes made the world breathe a collective ‘awww’ when she recently released Oh Sailor, a joyous triumph of pop (featuring a children’s chorus, no less). While it’s unclear yet as to whether this McCartney cover is a B-side or another taster of a forthcoming LP, it’s still a beautiful piece of – in the words of the PR – left-of-centre pop balladry. More, please.
