Susanne Sundfør – Fade Away

With a string of high-profile collaborations behind her (Kleerup, M83 and Röyksopp all within the space of a year) as well as her own exquisite records, it feels like this could be Susanne’s moment, and boy is she seizing it with this track, her first from a new album, Ten Love Letters, due February 2015. It’s got big driving beats, a spot of ’80s funk guitar and Susanne’s distinctive vocals singing about “the sound of your heart”. It’s recognisable from her previous work, but this is a bold pop statement surely destined for big things. Our favourite bit is when it pauses and a microwave pings: she is ready to be a star.
