A couple of months, Copenhagen-based Freja caught our attention with the stunning “Lonely”. While the track resounded with the ’90s-style pop sound of Roxette, the song has the sensual and emotive power of Adele. The single offered a hint of what was to come on her new EP, White Magic Spells.

While the album is only a mere three songs, including “Lonely”, it leaves a lasting impression. Part of it is the power-pop sound that Freja uses, ranging from the music of ’80s icon Tiffany to current Swedish sensation Robyn. In other words, it is music that is highly infectious with its summertime and anthemic pop, yet it possesses stories that hit close to the heart for any individual who has been in love. The combination makes Freja a name to remember, as she’s well on track to being a pop star.

“Young Heart” opens the album and reveals the potential of Freja. With its catchy melodies and ’80s pulses, the track is tailor made for radio play. “Lonely”, the EP’s best track, follows, offering listeners a much more immersive and intimate experience. “Ashes”, which completes the EP, is likewise a great track. Freja, however, heads more of an electro-pop direction a la Coves. And like the UK band, Freja may describe a scene of paradise, but underneath is a song about a broken heart.

The EP is short – it also contains a remix of “Young Heart” – but in these three songs there’s no question Freja will be Denmark’s – and possibly Europe’s – next great pop star. She has the sound and the lyrical prowess to succeed and potentially reach the audiences of her more famous contemporaries.

Hear the entire EP on SoundCloud or purchase it on iTunes (US | CAN | UK) or Amazon (US | UK). The EP is out via White Magic Records, Freja’s own label.
