The Drop — Anna Of The North & Astrid S
Our guide to New Music Friday features Anna Of The North and Astrid S.

Here’s proof that two Norwegian buzz acts are better than one. Matoma joins forces with Astrid S on unusually icy tropical house anthem “Running Out,” the highlight of the rising producer’s amazingly-titled debut LP Hakuna Matoma. This is a distinctly Scandinavian take on the dance sub-genre with a glacial synths and a wistful (yet undeniably catchy) chorus. Given the track’s wintery tone, it’s not surprising that they most of the video (above) looking sad in the snow.

While Matoma is perhaps best-known stateside for irresistible Jason Derulo/Jennifer Lopez collaboration “Try Me,” the 24-year-old has racked up hundreds of millions of streams with a string of club-bangers. As for Astrid S? Well, she dropped a very, very good single called “Paper Thin” last week and is shaping up to be the next Scandinavian diva with global potential. The house heavyweight makes his Coachella debut in April. There’s no word yet if he’s bringing along his current collaborator.
