Hailing from Tromsø, Norway — Dagny (Norvoll Sandvik) has consistently impressed ever since her breakthrough debut single 'Backbeat' towards the end of 2015. Daughter of jazz guitarist/composer Øystein Norvoll and jazz singer Marit Sandvik - in many ways, Dagny's music reflects her personality - a quirky, endearing pop sound infused with a huge dose of contagious youthful optimism.

New single Wearing Nothing, draws together funk-laced bass lines with explosive electronic-tinged percussion, brandishing Dagny's vibrant voice, quirky cleverness, and self-described “eternal optimism”. As she began to work on new music in 2017, the Norwegian further embraced an unabashed and unfiltered perspective. “I’m constantly pushing myself to be more open, daring, and super true,” she admits. “I’m telling real stories. If I don’t believe it, then who will? The youthful optimism is there, because I constantly want to celebrate life."

Dagny quietly sent shockwaves throughout the music industry in 2016. After a high-profile Beats 1 premiere by tastemaker Zane Lowe, 'Backbeat' transformed into a veritable smash, racking up a staggering 30 million Spotify streams as Apple, Spotify, and Tidal pegged her as an “Artist To Watch” and Interview Magazine, NME, Nylon, Forbes, and more lauded her upon the release of debut EP ‘Ultraviolet’.

In between this whirlwind, she made intermittent writing trips that proved invaluable. Co-written with Ludvig Söderberg (Tove Lo, Ellie Goulding) and Alx Reuterskiöld (Tove Lo, Zara Larsson), Dagny bares it all—musically and emotionally—on her new single 'Wearing Nothing’. Driven by propulsive percussion, a dancefloor-ready stomp, lithe guitars, and sultry, shimmering production, the track quickly snaps into an undeniable and unforgettable chant, “When I’m with you I feel like wearing nothing,” with more than meets the eye.

Delving a little deeper into the lyrical premise, Dagny explained: "It plays on the idea of wanting to be naked with someone. You meet this person you really want to show everything to and be as close as possible to. You’re as bare with them as you can be—to the point where even a piece of clothing feels like too much space in between. You want them to see everything physically and mentally. When you’re an artist, it feels like you’re doing the same thing and showing something intimate and sharing a personal story.”

She went on to say, "The song is called 'Wearing Nothing' but it's not just about wanting to be naked with someone. It's about wanting to be completely bare with someone and be as close as possible both emotionally and physically even to the point where a piece of clothing feels like too much in-between. I believe it's my most intimate song to date.”

Dagny’s story is just beginning to unfold. With a marathon of touring planned and more music on the horizon, she’s got a big year ahead. “Every time I release something, it feels a little bit more like me,” she leaves off. “I grow as an artist. “It all comes from the songs. I hope people can listen to this and feel happier. I really just want to inspire confidence. Maybe you put on my music and can walk with your head up a little higher—or run down the street naked.”
