Swedish alt-pop powerhouse NONONO return with their stunning and emotive new single ‘Lost Song’ on November 10th through Warner Music Sweden.
The Stockholm trio, comprised of Tobias Jimson (Astma), Michel Flygare (Rocwell) and Stina Wäppling made a very welcome return with their single ‘Masterpiece’ in September 2017. This was the first release since their breakthrough 2014 LP, ‘We Are Only What We Feel’, which featured earworm and global smash single ‘Pumpin Blood’. ‘Masterpiece’ marked the reformation of one of Sweden’s biggest pop prospects.
After the release of ‘Pumpin Blood’, NONONO fast became one of the fastest rising forces in Swedish pop music. With more than 2.000.000 singles sold, a performance at The Tonight Show with Jimmy Kimmel, US tours alongside Twenty One Pilots and Foster the People as well as appearances at Lollapalooza Festival, the trios plethora of international gold records (including the USA) and multi-platinum sales in Scandinavia speak for the intense international hold NONONO has commanded with their sparing yet impactful careers to date.
After the success of their debut record the trio took 18 months out to do their own thing. Tobias and Michel soon got back together in the studio and picked up their producing careers, working with artists like Madonna, Maroon 5, Tove Lo and Zara Larsson. Feeling the need to do the opposite to the previous two years Stina went to India, a place she calls her second home. Here she lived in the hippie community Auroville, meditating, breathing, listening to and gathering new sounds. The travels in Asia went on for half a year and included surfing the coasts of Sri Lanka and Bali, always with the guitar as hand luggage. Feeling as free as one can be she was happy to realise that the thing she would always do and come back to was music. Back with the boys in Stockholm she was excited to bring all the new experiences and feelings into the music making process. Alongside making music she also began finishing her master in psychology as well as having patients of her own, a parallel activity that also has influenced and sneaked its way into the songwriting process.
Speaking about the new single ‘Lost Song’ singer Stina explains, “Tobias played the track for Lost song to me in the car when I had just returned from India and I remember feeling really stunned by the fact that it mirrored a lot of the feelings and emotions that had surrounded me in that country so far from home. The song is about losing and regaining trust in life. Having the cornerstones of my belief system crushed but finding trust in the basics of being, like being a tree or the way a child just is. To me this is a very powerful and healing feeling and I hope it can reach and translate to anyone who is listening.”
