Wilma Nea is the solo project of Wilma Ås, usually seen singing backup vocals in the band Children of the Sün. She debuted with the single ‘Kolgränd’ in early 2019 via artist-run Ish A Record Label. She followed it up with her debut EP ‘Issues’ in 2020 to great praise.
There is something about her music which feels so natural, yet hauntingly original. Her clever vocal melodies dances atop the tracks in a way that manages to feel equal parts showtun-ey as vulnerable. ‘Issues’ is a sincere and playful record that places her sound somewhere in the middle between Clairo and Fiona Apple.
“It’s mostly just a piece of music that never has to work hard to sound good” - NBHAP
“I’ve given myself the space to fail and try different ways of working. The EP is full of homemade solutions and I love that” - Wilma Nea
