DAGNY - Backbeat

Introducing Tromsø, Norway-born solo artist Dagny Sandvik, aka DAGNY, who has today unveiled her debut single, "Backbeat". The track had its radio premiere on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show last night, and premiered online this morning via The Line Of Best Fit.

Over the last 12 months or so DAGNY has been actively writing and performing both locally and internationally. She has toured Norway as a solo artist, as well as with her four piece band. In 2013, she went on the first of her 'Living Room' tours. Since then she’s been arranging these tours annually, performing to thousands of fans as a result.

Selling out her debut London headline show at The Old Queens Head towards the end of last year - based purely on word of mouth, DAGNY’s return to the stage this month saw her play two more extremely well received shows, culminating in a fiery performance to a packed out Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen crowd.

Her new single "Backbeat" speaks volumes for what DAGNY is all about. Immensely catchy folk-inflected pop choruses, driving piano lines, all carried by DAGNY's timeless, and effortlessly captivating vocals. “Think fast, don’t let the speed of sound leave you feeling paralysed / Slow down, cause your words are saying something different from your eyes" DAGNY sings in "Backbeat"’s verse - perhaps a reference to how quickly things can change - whether those things be relationships, friendships, or perhaps things moving forward in one’s own career. For DAGNY, she might just be about to experience the latter, first hand.

Speaking on the track, DAGNY says:

"From the day we wrote 'Backbeat' it's been a track full of energy. When I play it live it allows me to really let go and this is how I hope people will feel when they put it on."

DAGNY has no doubt got a wonderfully busy year ahead, with numerous live shows shceuduled for the rest of the year moving into 2016, along with her debut EP, which is set to arrive early next year.

Listen to "Backbeat" below.

"Backbeat" is available now on iTunes.
