Top Tracks: Thom Hell – 1985

The critically acclaimed Norwegian singer/songwriter has returned with the latest single from his upcoming album Happy Rabbit out 16th December. From it’s simple bass driven intro ‘1985’ soon builds into a glorious track reminiscent of the heyday of 60s and 70s pop. It’s sweet melodies and heady guitar tones make for one uplifting listen. The latter half of the song in particular is simply divine and occasionally has hints of Belwood favourites Holy Holy. From it’s dark beginnings ‘1985’ soon blooms into vibrant new life, like the first flowers emerging from the thaw. With songs like this at his disposal it’s no surprise that he is one of Norway’s most established writers and producers. If his new album has more of the same to offer then I can imagine his fanbase is all set to grow.
