Norway’s Dagny releases new single ‘Love You Like That’. Hot on the heels of veritable synth-pop smash ‘Wearing Nothing’ – this latest single stands out as another unpredictable, unshakable, and undeniable modern day anthem from Dagny. The song builds from its breathy verses into a hummable bridge section punctuated by delectable guitars and 80’s-tinged synths. On the song, Dagny noted: “’Love You Like That” is the first proper love song I’ve ever released. It’s funny because I’ve always been wary of using the phrase “I love you” in songs, in fear of sounding too cliché or corny, but then I just went and broke the “amounts-of-I love you-in-one-song” record. And it feels good. I’m not a particularly romantic person nor am I great at telling people how I feel about them, so this was probably long over-due. If you love someone, you should tell them.”
