Emerging Swedish talent Bishat is streaming her latest single, ‘Mine’. The track is the follow up to debut single ‘Sober’, which she self-released earlier this year, since accruing over 400,000 Spotify streams. Bishat made her original breakthrough in late 2015 with ‘Some Things’, a mash up of Daniel Johnston’s ‘Some Things Last A Long Time’ with the Weeknd’s ‘Often’ and Lykke Li’s ‘No Rest For The Wicked’. Skipping PR representation to mailing the track out herself, Bishat soon racked up over 30,000 plays and extensive blog support.
Hailing from Gothenburg- interspersed with a teenage stint pursuing performing arts in West London- Stockholm-based Bishat also has roots in Ethiopia and Eritrea. Whilst one of her earliest musical memories dates back to writing a song as a 13 year old with José González (Bishat’s older brother used be in cult band Junip along with González), it was actually during a patch of insomnia whilst staying with family in Ethiopia, that Bishat pieced ‘Mine’ together.
