Some Music Makes Me Slowly Die Inside

“Some music makes me die slowly inside you know! You know the kind of songs that are so sombre that they leave you in a rather bad vibe"

Tell Me - Stian Summer

Tell Me is the first single in the David Bowie and Andy Warholl triologi from Stian Summer.

Bowie, Ziggy Stardust era, a drawing and Stian Summer on an artists table. New York art dealer breaks in.
She is either a massive fan or an ex. breaking in to alter his drawing, Could also be a stalker, look at her gloves.
She’s giving back the flowers he gave her, she’s still young. She burns his bad thoughts, square thoughts about her. Artwork goes for sale for 85K USD. We’ll all understand, We’re all emotionally clever. This is not reality, and as the video goes on it takes it’s own life, own anatomi. You as a viewer is it’s servant.

 

Who Is Stian Summer then?

“Even since I was kid the kind of songs that i really really liked and played over and over again and again were the ones that were simply brilliantly catchy!” Ian laughs.

Sitting in the sofa on a rather cold sunny friday afternoon in the always busy and cramped office space of BritishPopSongs.

“I kind of always thinks that the last song that I’ve made is the best one I have ever done, I’m not sure if that is very wise, actually kind of  stupid, so I kind of keep it to myself, always”

FULL ARTICLE

 

"BritishPopSongs UK has gained the reputation as being somewhere to look for quality indie/pop for young people as well as grown ups that not only likes that their fave artists got something to say for themselves, but artists that also holds a real knack for coming up with a good tune, that little extra that you will make you reach for the repeat button as soon as the song ends"

 

 

“In many ways I have left Stian Summer to his own devices for a long while, because I have been so busy building up the BritishPopSongs brand and the fine artists we have there, and somehow that has been not good for the Stian Summer project, it has kind of suffered.

Stian Summer  is bound to be an iconic virtual indie pop star that goes on doing only exactly what he wants to do, some extraordinary and unique ultra pop tunes that are both catchy and bittersweet. You kind of got a sense of desperation in the music.

Somehow I personally would love to leave behind a little legacy in the business of music that i personally could be proud of. Probably the single reason why i started the BritishPopSongs brand was that i wanted no more to do other peoples things 100%. I wanted to do music that i loved, dreamed of, was passionate about, all on my own terms. Would i make a good living out of it? Yes i would, but it would take time and that i was willing to risk. Then came a dozen artists in a they took so much of my time, because we wanted it good, and only now do i feel that we have the house in order. There are some great music coming from us in 2014 onwards and it will fire in all directions.

My pet project that is BritishPopSongs is once in a lifetime thing, I will not do it over again, I promise, but it was something that i simply had to do”

This Is Berlin

INFECTIOUS TAKE ON DAVID BOWIE AND IGGY POP BERLIN ERA INDIE, THIS IS BERLIN

A CITY OF WINNERS AND LOOSERS

Though Berlin these days is most of all a symbol of human unity it is also a living symbol of human individuality. The lyrics of the song reflects the city as a love story for most of it´s people but also a place where it is far from easy to make it by. “It was clear from the start that this song should capture the real Berlin instead of merely being a pretty picture” explains label manager Ian Nilsen who is also the composer of the song.
