Having amassed 200 million global streams on last November’s melodic pop hit ‘So Close’, Swedish duo NOTD, comprised of Tobias Danielsson and Samuel Brandt, return with new single ‘Keep You Mine’, featuring singer-songwriter and fellow Swede SHY Martin. An irresistible slice of dance-pop, ‘Keep You Mine’ sees NOTD masterfully combine electronic and organic elements. The result is an understated yet energetic track that is complemented by Martin’s scintillating vocals.
“The sonic vibe is getting harder,” states Sam. “We always push it and try new things with a pop feeling too. We use live instruments as much as possible too.”
“We’re experimenting and taking inspiration from different genres” agrees Tobi. “Every time we make music, we want to do something we haven’t done or heard before.”
This isn’t the first time NOTD and SHY Martin have collaborated, as SHY was a co-writer on NOTD’s biggest song to date, “I Wanna Know” (ft. Bea Miller) which is certified 2x Platinum in Australia, Platinum in Sweden, Canada, and Norway, as well as Gold in the US. SHY has previously been nominated for a number of awards in Sweden, including two P3 Gold awards and a Swedish Grammy. She has also won a Swedish Publishing Award for both Breakthrough & International Success of the Year. SHY has written for global artists like The Chainsmokers, Kygo, Ellie Goulding and Bebe Rexha.
Successful newcomers, NOTD have gained over 650 million streams from their own productions and a further 150 million remixing high-profile artists such as Years & Years, Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes and Stanaj. With over 200 million streams, their global smash “So Close” hit #1 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart, #1 on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart and claimed real estate on 1,400 key Spotify playlists ranging from Today’s Top Hits and Dance Pop to TGIF. Sports Illustrated cover star and avowed NOTD fan girl Camille Kostek even starred in her own music video for the song.
As they embark on tour supporting Zedd and continue to unveil more music, NOTD never stop moving forward. Amassing over 8 million monthly listeners on Spotify and topping all major Apple Music playlists in the process, NOTD continue to garner worldwide acclaim on account of their signature breezy synth.
