Swedish-American singer and song-writer Lexi Berg has released her exceptional new single, 'Midnight Sun,' following on from previous releases, which include 'Into The Sea' and 'Helpless To Help You.'
She turns to her Nordic roots for inspiration for her new single, with the song being set in Sweden, whereby the summer nights provide the perfect landscape for love and enchantment. With a hint of acoustic pop and a contemporary production, her vocals truly shine throughout the track.
Speaking about her new single, Lexi Berg explained:
"The sun can be up all night during the Swedish summers. There is mystery and magic in that light. This song is about reconnecting with someone in your past on a Swedish summer night, in that dreamy haze of never-ending light. It's about one last, melancholy encounter."
Here at The Lowdown, we had the opportunity to speak with Lexi Berg about her new single, her musical influences and more. Keep reading to check out what she had to say!
