ColoRising Mixes 23: Maja Skillz

Mari Nordén aka Maja Skillz can be classified into many categories but at the end of the day, she is an all-around creative. The Olso-based singer, producer, artist and designer, who has morphed the sound of pop, electronica, trap and more, is creating truly exciting and brilliant music. Having been a part of the band Shy For Shore, her latest project finds her experimenting with vocal styles and textures like brush strokes on the palette, forming vivid pieces of fine art. The latest Maja Skillz release ‘FALL APRT’, is a documentation of a relationship gone awry, yet musically decorated with beautiful sonics of alt-pop, lush and rich. Expect a tidal wave of artistry in 2016 from the Norwegian mastermind.

ColoRising Mixes 22: Sofia Härdig

Singer, musician and composer Sofia Härdig is considered to be one of the leading acts coming out of Sweden with a sound organic and raw, explosively bursting out of the seams with energy. No stranger to the music industry, Härdig has worked with the likes of Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and Julia Crafitz of Pussy Galore, not to mention Grammy Award winning group The Hellacopters and more. In a sense the Swedish artist reflects the very idea of what a true rock star looks, feels and sounds like. Whilst her native country has maintained a tradition of pumping out pop acts, Härdig’s music is experimental, racing, unafraid and unapologetic. Her visuals are performance art, something that was a staple in New York’s East Village punk and new wave scene or West Berlin in the 70s and 80s.

‘Missing One Player’ by Lei Lei

Chinese artist Lei Lei explores the melancholic side of life in his visually vibrant latest work entitled ‘Missing One’. Shown via Nowness, the lack of storyline in the short film helps to emphasis to the bigger picture which is the general apathy that exists between humans. The title points reference at the game of mahjong, in which commonly four players participate. Three players roam the streets in search of one more, yet finds it difficult task.

In response to his film, Lei Lei told Nowness:

“The lack of sympathy among people has made me feel very strange and sad.”
