The year is coming to a close, and what a year it has been, with music zinging out of the Nordics like rocket launched fireworks into the sonic sky. To honour all of those wonderful artists who have provided our musicverse with so much love, sounds, happiness, melodrama and”sparkling synths”, DervSwerve is holding the first annual #DervSwerve Awards (indulge me), which will be split into three categories – Norwegian, Nordic and UK&I.
It will come as no surprise to regular readers of this blog that my heart is in snowy Norway, but cheeky little flirt that she is, she has been known to go cross border wandering into other Nordic and UK&I territories. So in order to level the playing field, and also cos it’s a bit of craic, we’ll have one set of awards exclusive to Norwegian acts, alongside one cross-Nordic and then a third for us neighbouring islands here in the Irish Sea.
I’ll update you re the various awards shortly, but needless to say, as well as the usual bill of awards fare, there’ll be a few amuses bouche to whet your appetite and whip up a smile on your faces – eg. the most looney tunes lyrics of the year awards (and I already know who has won that on behalf of the Norwegian community!!). If you have any suggestions you’d care to make – you know where I am.
Also, if you’d like to make your voice felt and let me know who you think should be among the nominees, post your views in the comments box below.
Let’s make the inaugural awards a bit of fun 🙂
Stay tuned………xx Swerve
