Nettwerk Records recently announced the signing of Mr Little Jeans, aka Monica Birkenes to its roster. Today, she shares the ‘Rytmeklubben Remix’ of “Fool 4 You”.
Born and raised in Grimstad, Norway, Birkenes is the daughter of a shipbuilder and secretary. Birkenes spent her childhood immersed in music, including early influences from PJ Harvey and Massive Attack. In 2011, the Norwegian electro-pop artist first captured attention with her striking, stripped-down rendition of Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs.” In 2014, Mr Little Jeans released the critically beloved debut album Pocketknife, featuring rapturous tracks like “Good Mistake” and “Oh Sailor (Feat. The Silverlake Conservatory of Music Youth Chorale).” Mr Little Jeans now resides in Los Angeles.
Earlier this year, Mr Little Jeans shared “Fool 4 U” a synth gem produced by Tim Anderson (Banks, Halsey) from the forthcoming EP (due for release later this year). Norwegian producer-DJ collective Rytmeklubben, who made waves with their recent remix of Zayn’s track “Like I Would”, flips the track.
