Dagny’s Viral Hit “Backbeat” Gets A Glittery Video
Norway is perilously close to toppling Sweden as Europe’s new pop powerhouse. From AURORA and Anna Of The North to Astrid S and Matoma, Norwegian artists are making their presence felt internationally like never before. Joining those ranks is Dagny, a rising pop star from Tromsø. She landed a genuine viral hit late last year with debut single “Backbeat,” racking up 15 million+ streams and being named an Artist To Watch by Apple, Spotify and Tidal.
Now signed to Republic Records, Dagny’s irresistible anthem is being rolled out (again) with a brand new video. It’s usually hard to muster a lot of enthusiasm for songs that have been on high rotation for six months, but “Backbeat” is still a pristine shot of Scandipop. As for the new visual, our heroine spends a lot of time in a dark room and gets up close and personal with disco balls. It’ll do. Watch up top.
