Nottee Pops Up

Icy disco pop from the Neneh Cherry-loving Scandinavian nymph

There are a few ways of introducing the stunning Swedish starlet known as Nottee. If you picked up last year’s Kitsune Maison 8 you'll have heard the infectious piano licks of “Control”, her perfect pop vocals discoing between the stripped-back house shuffle. Did you know she also played bass in her brother Leo’s band Lo-Fi-Fnk? Or maybe you know her simply as an awesome 24-year-old supply teacher from Stockholm called Nova Drougge. Anyway, formal greetings aside, this Neneh Cherry-loving nymph is one to watch, and that you can at her debut London tour in April, where you’ll be treated to her elemental electro pop ballads. Minimal, icy and magical musical tales of an 80‘s-indebted modern life. Bring it on.
