Burgeoning Norwegian singer Marie Noreger releases her single ‘Soulfully High’.
The track is the second release in the lead up to Marie’s debut EP and is her first introduction to the UK.
Marie on Soulfully High:
Soulfully High is expressing an inner journey.
It was originally a poem I wrote when I was 16, facing a rough time.
As a means to help myself I was writing a lot at that time.. and it was especially this poem I kept writing on as I was growing out of the pain.
About four years ago I went abroad to live on an island in Spain for a little while.
I experienced something really nice happening inside, as I went inwards rather than looking outside myself to find happiness.
I was often spending a lot of time alone, walking, listening to music and feeling the movement of the ocean. But I also spend some time with people that mean something special to me.. And at some point it just clicked.
I realised I had no toxic energy around me, and I had the space to reconnect with myself.
When I recorded the song two years later, I brought some of that experience into the poem. Now the song is really not sad at all. I’m basically singing to myself as if I was my best friend, lover or sister.. It became a sort of guiding song rather than a sad song telling a sad story.
