You know her by her first name only – so let’s put it in capitals. GRETA. It sounds like something out of a fairy tale, and the music does have something magical to it.
GRETA is a Copenhagen-situated German musician, and her dreamy synthpop builds worlds of imagination.
Imagine stories about spaceship landings and 80s-inspired motion pictures like E.T. (and more recent: Stranger Things). GRETA’s music would fit such soundtracks perfectly! It looks back at a bygone time, and at the same time is has a fixed gaze on the future. One media (in Danish only, sorry) has labelled her music ‘astronautical pop’, which is a fitting description.
Her music is floaty and with an electronic groove, centred around bubbly melodies, flickering harmonies and GRETA’s airy, gravity-defying vocals at the front.
Last October, GRETA released her debut EP, Ardent Spring, Pt. 1, which is also makes up the first half of her forthcoming debut album, which will be out sometime in 2020.
GRETA played her first live shows in 2019, and she has built up a generous amount of enthusiasm for her magical music. Embark on a nostalgia-infused future trip in the company of GRETA when she plays at Roskilde Festival. You’re about to experience some weird and wonderful things.
