Norwegian artist Torgny drops dark-pop gem Together, featuring long-time collaborator Maria Due and he reveals his Top 5 Influences Playlist. Together is lifted from the forthcoming 4-track EP due this summer.
Torgny explains: “Together tells the story of romantic love under pressure. That kind of strange, simmering pressure. Relationship goals, ambivalence, transformation, future angst, I guess all of that, and more are in there. I’ve worked with Maria since my early releases and she perfectly encapsulates the feeling of the song. I love her voice and spirit. Using her voice as an instrument, I feel that I am her voice, just as much as I am my own voice. It can be hard to know what is solitude and what is loneliness. I suppose this EP deals with that too.”
