ABOUT FRIDA FINSTAD
The former handball goalkeeper in the Norwegian elite series, released her third single of the year on 27 November. The previous two pop songs filled with attitude and sassiness are clearly inspired by Peg Parnevik and Zara Larsson. We’ll also get a taste of that in her latest release called “Up All Night”, along with a softer and vulnerable side. The song is written by Frida herself, and produced by her friend Simon Örthagen. The production gives the lyrics, vocals and attitude the space it deserves, at the same time as the catchy melodies goes straight to your head.
Finstad is an artist and songwriter living in Stockholm, originally from Rælingen outside of Oslo, Norway. Her biggest wish is to increase people's self-confidence and ability to delete the law of Jante, that takes up too much space here in Scandinavia. It’s about confidence, daring to say what you think and trusting yourself when no one else does.
Less than two years ago, the former athlete googled “what is a chord?”; today Frida’s studying singer/songwriter at Kulturama School of Arts and Entertainment in Stockholm, is working on her debut EP and speaks swedish fluently, thanks to TV-shows “Parneviks”, “Wahlgrens Värld” and Astrid Lindgren. Being told she’s only been “in the game” for about a year is hard to believe, but very exciting.
Finstad's latest release has a softer vibe where you're welcomed into the head of a newly single girl with adhd.
"You say you don’t care, you’re acting cool, but when it turns dark you know you’re not able to think about anything else than the conversation that won’t take place, memories that’ll never happen and experiences you can only dream about. If you only could see eachother one more time..."
