FRESH: ‘I Want You’ – Una Sand

Una Sand releases “I Want You”.

by Christopher Smith

The young songwriting talent Una Sand debuted with her first solo single in 2016, before spending the next few years writing songs and figuring out her path and sound. Going from strength to strength releasing a string of singles co written an produced by prominent heavy weights like Fed Ball, Una released her debut EP via Universal Music, “Perspective”, in mid 2018.

Currently published by Sony ATV Netherlands, Una has spent the past year and a half in her safe place, the studio making incredible music that´s soon ready to see the day of light. In the process Una have also taken full control of her career and with “I Want You”, she is launching her own record label. Watch this space as more singles will be released throughout 2020 and beyond marking a new era for one of Norways most promising songwriters and artists.

Una explains more: “If somebody had asked me a year ago if I’d dare to release material under my own label, I would have just laughed. I wouldn’t have thought I was able to do that, especially after I ended my first artist deal. So it’s with a very unique feeling and a sense of empowerment I can finally say that my new single is out, and under my own independent label. Writing “I Want You” was actually a very straightforward process, and the result, I think, is very honest. The whole song was finished in just about five hours. We were all quite exhausted at this point, and because of that everyone had kinda let their guard down. So in the end it’s the result of three different people, with their own experiences and battles, coming together over a common vulnerability, which was love”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
