Although born and raised in Norway, the band have strong African backgrounds. Nico’s parent hail from the Ivory Coast, whilst Vinz’ family come from Ghana. The duo perfectly mines their African heritage – reimagining the exuberance, rhythm and soul of African music within a Scandinavian pop vibe.
It’s an approach which is immediately evident within the ‘Black Star Elephant’ album as it effortlessly blends pop, reggae, West African dance, hip hop, rock and soul to create an engaging collection of songs which brim with soul-stirring messages which claim positive hopes for the future.
As Vinz explains: “We are Norwegian and African. It is important for us to inspire. We sing about things we’ve been going through and about finding ourselves. To us it’s important to have a message, and the goal for us is to inspire people to find happiness.”
The new single ‘In Your Arms’ captures the essence of what made ‘Am I Wrong’ so loved – a blissful pop hook supported by a beguiling blend of Afrobeat rhythms and sweet vocal melodies. Nico & Vinz’s optimistic approach to songwriting focuses on another inspirational message with a lyric that emphasises the power of positivity in troubled times.
