Great Leap Forward is the new single by Swedish artist Ninsun Poli, from her EP of the same name, and will be released in the UK on 20 April. An electro-synth song (with a Scandi-pop dance beat), it’s got an uplifting message about not letting the past drag you down and to have faith in what lies ahead. “Don’t you know it’s light just around the corner”. It’s a great dance track and at Ninsun’s recent EP launch in London had everyone up on their feet.

The video shows Ninsun in the snow, lost in a whirl of light and confusion. Lyrics flash across the screen, but the message is both upbeat and positive. “Can’t delay evolution it will only add confusion” and “Standing still but time is spinning, don’t go ending a beginning” are mottos that could easily be added to everyday life.
