Europe makes great pop acts, don’t they? Our Song of the Week comes from Norway born ARY, in the form of “Childhood Dreams.”ARY’s vocals are very sweet and slightly pitchy, but they completely work with production.

Another thing about the Norwegian star is that she brings some serious Robyn vibes – you know Robyn? The greatest pop star on the planet that has seemingly gone missing? Yeah her.
And that’s not a bad thing, being compared to Robyn is possibly the biggest compliment you could have. ARY uses Robyn influences without ripping her off and creating a carbon copy track.
The track kicks straight of the gate with a thumping synth that takes you straight to the club. The track builds and builds with dreamy swirls before leading you into a false sense of security with the bridge – just when you’re expecting the beat the crash for the final chorus, the synth beat cuts right out.
It leaves you out to dry but it’s amazing! ARY leaves you wanting more as the song bows out at 3:08, not overstaying her welcome but not leaving too soon either.
Picking this track wasn’t easy, there are three other releases that any other week would have easily been chosen – reviews for those will come in the next few days.
