Fanny Andersen is yearning for innocent times on absolute pop banger "Kids"

05 December 2016, 13:00 | Written by Andrew Hannah

21-year-old Oslo-based Fanny Andersen looks like following in the footsteps of AURORA and Astrid S in becoming the next Norwegian pop star everyone's talking about.

Andersen isn't really in the same bracket as those acts, though, as her attitude-filled pop finds her alongside the underrated Julie Bergan in making dancefloor-ready tunes with huge crossover appeal.

"Kids" is a huge anthem about the innocence of youth; Andersen sings "self-doubt and hatred / that shit came later" over a snapping backbeat and twisted, deep bass. There's bright synths pulsing away in the chorus along with pitch-bent vocals, both colourful additions which balance against the darkness of the singer's troubled lyrical themes.

The song feels like a pretty special moment ; it's a short blast of pop brilliance and signals the start of something big for the Norwegian.

"Kids" is available now on Spotify.
