JOKER by Celiin

Somewhere between romance and depression, where extreme emotions meet, you’ll find CELIIN’s vintage heart and modern spirit.

Inspired by a broad range of artists from BANKS and Lana Del Rey to Nothing But Thieves and Debussy, CELIIN combines alternative pop music with dark melancholic plotlines. Searching for the balance between beauty and macabre, the enigmatic Norwegian artist is ready to share her diary pages in a filthy yet glamorous way and introduce you to adventure pop.

With “Joker” Celiin gets serious with her cinematic references: extracting emotions from David Arnold and Hildur Guðnadóttir’s epic compositions, CELIIN combines a strong, catchy pop-hook with cheeky brass band vibes and western guitar – making a bizarre and enticing track that can only be described as circus-pop. The ‘doll-rock’ Norwegian seems to have found confidence in her genre fluidity, expanding her “filthy glamour universe” to include heavy swing jazz. The song deserves to be heard widely, as it raises the level of the current indie industry.
