Marit Larsen

folk-pop // acoustic

Some of you might be familiar with Marit Larsen as a former member of Norwegian teenage duo M2M, known for their hit “Don’t Say You Love Me” (1999). Following the duo’s break up Marit has shifted from the sugary sweet pop to a subtler and more mature kind of songwriting. Her second solo effort, The Chase (2008), is all about the rich yet unpretentious arrangements and memorable melodies. Featured below, “Steal My Heart” is one of Marit’s slow paced numbers and a great example of her orchestral pop crafting. The song evolves around the gorgeous strings and overall delicate instrumentation that carries Marit’s soft vocals.

Sweet melody to melt your heart.

    I highly recommend her cd The Chase. The music and her lryics are very refreshing. So much better than the mainstream crap ( i.e. the beyonces and taylor swifts of music)

    Her voice is very innocent. I love this! I agree w/ jester’s comment; this is the kind of song that should be popular.

  8. perivallon :

    I really like her voice.It is so innocent and childish.

  9. Lale :

    Funny. I’m from Austria and there she is absolutely mainstream and incredibly overplayed. ‘If a song could get me you’ was number 1 in the charts for ages. It gets really boring after a while…

  10. bekurov :

    Norwegians are always great! Comfortable and… super comfortable… Wish i were a fish…

  11. Thomas :

    same as Lale. :)

  12. Emutsag :

    Ok, so that’s three female singer-songwriters in a row… yawn.

  13. Sean :

    I agree, Norwegians always bring it.

  16. Matt :

    Nice, but the pizzicato strings remind me of the incidental music that seems to have taken over every US TV show in the last few years.

  17. Rob :
