Dagny's first proper love song "Love You Like That" is a pop triumph

Optimistic, endearing, and believable, Dagny is definitely in love on her new single.

Norwegian singer/songwriter Dagny has been at the forefront of what's hot in pop ever since the release of her debut single "Backbeat". A collaboration with lusciuous-locked American crooner BØRNS followed, as did an impeccable EP by the name Ultraviolet. Her synthpop sound still sparkles and this summer's "Wearing Nothing" with its Wes Anderson-inspired music video proved Sandik had much more to give.

The track may feature more "I love you"s than Natasha Bedingfield's cult classic "These Words", but that doesn't mean it's in any way, shape, or form the cliché Dagny thought it may be. She explains, "I've always been wary of using the phrase 'I love you' in songs, in fear of sounding too cliché or corny, but then I just went and broke the 'amount-of-I love yous-in-one-song' record. And it feels good. I'm not a particularly romantic person, nor am I great at telling people how I feel about them, so this was probably long overdue. If you love someone, you should tell them.”

Currently on tour with LANY across the United States following a sold-out New York headline at Mercury Lounge, plus her cover of disco classic and Rachel Stevens' Comic Relief single "More, More, More" is featured in all of US megastore Target's autumn ad campaigns. With more live shows planned this side of the pond in the coming months, Dagny continues powering on towards the end of this relentless year.

"Love You Like That" is out now.
