Iben – Childish (Spotify)

“This is one of those cases where you need to open your consciousness, tune in and completely immerse in music. Beautiful vocals and very juicy sound, which can guarantee your amuzement!”

“Это один из тех случаев, когда для понимания прослушиваемого материала надо открыть своё сознание, настроиться и погрузиться полностью в музыку. Красивый вокал и очень сочный звук, который скрасит любой из ваших вечеров!”


The 20 year old Norwegian singer Iben is playing with feelings in her new mesmerizing pop banger ‘Childish’, letting her own childish feelings take overhand as well as introducing a musically darker, raw and unpolished style. The song is about dealing with low self-esteem while being in a relationship where you worship your partner and are afraid of exposing the fragile and vulnerable sides of yourself. Having got good feedback on her self-released songs as well as playlisting on NRK P3, this is her first single on Sailor Music, marking the next step in her career establishing her on the Scandinavian pop scene as someone to keep an eye on for the future.
