Harp-playing R&B artist makes music to make you swoon

Here’s an exciting name on the Danish music scene. Take note of the name Selma Judith.

She’s a multi-artist who works in many disciplines. She writes and directs films, she plays the classical harp – and more presently: she produces emotional, alternative pop music, meant to be played after dark.

You may have heard about her. She performed at Roskilde Festival 2019, she has performed together with MØ and The National, and she has written a gentle smash hit with “Kind of Lonely”. She also appeared on Goss’ ”Fighting for the Gospel”.

Recently, she released the song “Some Folklores” which toys with unconventional rhythms and almost Björk-like vocals. The single is a forerunner of Selma Judith’s upcoming debut album.

Everything is clear proof that 25-year-old Selma Judith is a major talent you should keep an open eye (or ear) on. She sings about love, loneliness and devotion. Her airy vocals are wrapped in pretty tunes, from slow to medium pace, and if you close your eyes, her songs can make you float a little.

Selma Judith is a rising star on the Danish (and, who knows, perhaps international... the talent is there) music scene. Come catch her at Summer Days.

Selma Judith performs at Summer Days on 1 July alongside slim0 and Iceage.
