Mia Berg is a young singer-songwriter from Bergen, Norway who lacks only one thing: your full attention.
We’d say that we are not really surprised to discover another talented singer-songwriter from this country, but Mia Berg did surprise us with the quality of her debut EP, aptly titled “Intro“, and released just a few weeks ago by Tik Music.
It clocks just around 20 minutes, but you won’t find even one unnecessary verse. It is intense – sometimes several themeses/melodies compete for your attention, and the vocals can be layered impressively – but not in an overwhelming way.
On the contrary, the sound of “Intro” is light, in both meanings of this word: it will leave you relaxed, and it will make your day a little bit brighter.
Each of the five (proper) songs Mia Berg gives us on her debut deserves to become a single, but she picked “Grow” for the first video. And if you ask us, it’s indeed one of the highlights of the EP – with “Berlin” repesenting an equal beauty.
So early into her career, Mia Berg seems to have everything she needs. She’s got great songs and a great voice, she’s bold yet mindful enough not to waste her or our time. Let’s only hope the world pays attention.
