Scandinavia has a strong track record for perfect pop, and the new single from Danish artist Soleima, 'Once Was', is no exception.

It's quite a slow burner but once you hit the chorus, it quickly builds into a huge Scandi-pop phenomenon. "Sometimes the Internet inspires me when I write songs," explains Soleima. "It's somehow become natural to interact in a rapid, and flighty way. I do it myself all the time. 'Once Was', on some level is about how this can feel. In a way you're always able to be in more than once place at the same time. But equally, you are never really only with one person at one time. To me, this is a song written to a friend and not a lover, even though many might think it is a love song. I guess it represents a very universal feeling that might occur in many different relationships though - and can be relevant to anyone really."

'Once Was' is the first release from Soleima's forthcoming debut EP which is expected to be released later this year.
