The simple answer is because she’s fly AF, but we’re feeling generous so we’ll be giving you the long version. Here we go…
Dagny is part of a crop of Scandinavian singers, including Astrid S, Aurora and Zara Larsson, who are really pushing through to the UK pop mainstream in 2016. Her sound is fresh, fun and electronic but unmistakably pop, which we obviously love.
She has already toured with pop greats like Sting, Elton John and Bryan Adams, but if that doesn’t impress you then get this, she hails from Tromsø, which is the northernmost (now that’s a word we should use more) city in the world. This is a place where they have endless nights in winter and endless days in summer. Mystical… And you can bet that she’s wrestled her fair share of bears and wolves. Now that’s our type of pop star!
Bear wrestling aside, her debut single ‘Backbeat’ came out late 2015 and is one of the best examples of where 2010s pop is headed. So basically, if you get into Dagny you’ll be ahead of the game in every single way possible.
Did anyone else notice that she looks like a Norwegian Taylor Swift? That can never be a bad thing tbh.
Plus, she does a mean Mexican wave! Now that’s the kind of pop star you can really get behind.
That aside, she also just released one of the supreme bangers of the year that everyone’s banging on about so why aren’t you?
