Behind the new artist project MAJRO stands the Swedish 24-year old songwriter and producer Myra Granberg. Following the release of her Debut EP ‘Heartbreak/Britney’ earlier this year, the world of MAJRO has created a buzz on Scandinavian radio and press. On new track ‘Yeah Alright’, she is joined by Swedish songwriter and producer Summer Heart (David Alexander), hyped by the likes of EARMILK and The Line of Best Fit. It’s not often that an artist’s name truly reflects their sound, but when it comes to Summer Heart, you can expect just that; sun-soaked tunes that are the sonic embodiment of hazy summer nights.
In a musical match of angelic design, MAJRO and Summer Heart deliver ‘Yeah Alright’ – a cruising track, bursting with the unshackled optimism of youth. The weighty rhythm section hooks the listener from the outset, driving the shimmering song forward with punch and fervour. Flavours of acoustic guitar inject the collaboration with the dreamy haze of golden hour as the woozy chant of background vocals becomes a rollicking motif that sends the listener back to the parties of their adolescence.
Here’s what they had to say about the release:
“‘Yeah Alright’ was born on a cold day towards the end of January this year in Joakim Buddee’s living room – he’s an incredible songwriter and producer! On one of the snowiest, grey and foggy days of the new year, the three of us were struck by the inspiration of American college parties. We started writing to capture a feeling of summer time and optimism over a track that we already had in the works. The studio was double-booked, so we couldn’t even record the idea properly. We sang the first demo through a laptop in the large echoing living room. Even though the first recording was total chaos, we kept a part of it in the bridge of the song to really get that kind of ‘singing by the fire’ feel to the song”.
