“A new entry on electro – pop genre is coming from the Scandinavic north to portray a more inner version of such a popular music listening of our times, blowing a fresh breeze as autumn gradually setting in.

WRURF is an experimental synthpop track built on neatly designed kicks, synthesizers, and vocal manipulations. The track opens with a flirting game between the kick and synth before Mightelle’s deep and soft voice carefully leads the listener towards a hectic, percussive, and redemptive chorus.

“WRURF is about confidently leaving a situation - especially when no one is sad to see you go. The track is inspired by a former relationship. I was SO confused. He said one thing and did something else and I completely lost myself. It sounds cliche, but along the lines, it dawned on me that is was an ‘actions speak louder than words’ kinda thing.”

Mightelle is the danish producer, singer and songwriter, Mai Skjødt. With contrasting electronic productions, heartfelt lyrics and forceful beats whirled in loads of synths, she lures you into a thoughtful sensitivity and shines a light where anger, doubt and love intertwine in the obscure nooks and knots of our thoughts. Partly rooted in synth-pop and partly in a fantasy world where everything is possible, she creates songs that challenge the usual genres and that have so many edges that you might as well give up counting them.

She draws inspiration from artists such as FKA Twigs, Lorde, Sevdaliza but mostly from her diary, dreams and nightmares.
