Oslo alt/pop & indie/rock artist Thea Glenton Raknes aka THEA & THE WILD [the band comprises of Kamilla Waal, Jørgen Apeness, Filip Roshauw] have released their jangly new single ‘Dark Horse’ [shared below] and its a chopsticks rattle-party about the tug-of-war nature of love… with sheer voice and jiggy beats.
“I like the way the song has surprises all the way, it really reflects the lyrics...” Thea says.
“The rhythms and Arabic-sounding licks are inspired by the music I used to listen to at my secondary school, which was very multicultural. The majority of my classmates were of non-Norwegian descent, and we would often spend our lunch breaks dancing to a variety of Middle Eastern music.”
The release heralds the release of a sophmore album later this year.
It will follow the Norwegian Grammy-nominated LP ‘Strangers and Lovers’
