Norwegian newcomer Ira Nor has just released her debut EP Swim Ira. The five-track release showcases the Oslo-based artist’s penchant for ethereal pop coupled with a subtle electronic edge.
“It’s intuitive for me,” she explains of her songwriting process. “I often feel like my head is bursting with melodies but I suppress them until I feel like I have so many ideas I need to get them out, and then I let them burst through.” Like a furious moment of possession, Ira admits that she often wonders where it all comes from.”
The lead single from Swim Ira, ‘flashback,’ perfectly encapsulates this emotional journey with its plaintive vocals and sweeping synth lines. Elsewhere on the EP, tracks like ‘swim alone in the dark’ and ‘doomed’ explore similar sonic territory, presenting a captivating soundscape that is both dreamy and mesmerizing.
