Sometimes, the best expressions of youth in music are not those about euphoria or anger. Sometimes, longing is what the experience of youth is really about.
Oslo electropop songstress Anna of The North is back with her new single "Baby" - a swoon-worthy, slow-burning track that encapsulates the uncertainty and the anticipation of the first love. Who hasn't had that feeling, when you ask yourself if your significant other is thinking of you at that moment? Who hasn't felt strangled by not knowing if they love you like you do? Do you remember how that felt when you were 17? And, if you're currently at that age, i know you know what i mean. "Baby" is all about that.
When she sings "Baby, are you home alone? / I need to know if we're still on", that's the teenage experience at its most authentic.
