Naim Records signs Norwegian dream-pop artist 'guns'

Naim Records today announced the signing of singer-songwriter guns to their ever increasing roster. Kristian Davis-Downs, Naim Records label manager, said "I’m delighted to welcome guns to Naim, I’ve been a fan for quite a while now and I really hope people enjoy the music as much as I do".

guns (Gunhild Jarwson Tekle) is a 24 year old singer-songwriter hailing from Trondheim, Norway. Her dream-pop production will no doubt draw comparisons to artists such as Tei ShiThe Knife and Solange, yet her sound is very much her own.

She perfected her sound and song craft in Copenhagen, Denmark, where she initially attended art-school, but was quickly distracted by her love of music and began working on a collection of songs, which she plans to release later this year as an EP. 

guns cites Kate Bush, Blood Orange, David Lynch and Abba as key influences, some of which can be heard in her debut track ‘Ricochet’ a dreamy synth soaked ethereal dream-pop ballad which lyrically explores the temporary and transient nature of life.

‘Ricochet’ (written by guns in Berlin and recorded in Copenhagen) is a super-catchy slice of alternative pop and will be the track, which introduces guns to the masses. ‘Ricochet’s laid back drums, Anders Bach Pedersen production and earworm chorus hook will no doubt make it a hype machine hit by the end of the summer.
