Brazilian-Norwegian artist Zenikan brings his latest single, ‘Bananabull Girl’ The soulful and very groovy track is the first single from his upcoming second album, and sees him blend his cultural and musical influences.
Born in Brazil, but with Bolivian roots, Zenikan has been living in Norway for the past 12 years, and has found a way to blend his Scandinavian influences to his South-American rooted songwriting.
Zenikan says ‘Bananabull Girl’ is about a love story that never happened, and the wishful thinking and hopeless romanticism of the song is brought out by the groovy bass and soulful vocals.
The artist had some difficulty with his songwriting during the pandemic, and but nonetheless was still able to harness the required optimism and hope required to come up with an upbeat, sexy tune, for a love story that never happened. The wishful thinking, along with the feeling of hopeless romanticism, are borne out by the groovy bass line, and Zenikan’s soulful vocals.
“It’s been a uniquely remarkable and rewarding experience”, he says. He found was a renewed belief in the power of togetherness. “It’s a human instinct that saved us throughout our journey and that will remain a powerful tool to overcome our challenges.”
‘Bananabull Girl’ is the first single to be released from Zenikan’s upcoming second album, which follows on from the success of 2018 debut album ‘Zumo’.
