With her white-blonde hair, dance-pop sound, and icy-cool voice, Vanbot has a lot in common with another Swedish star: Robyn. But although Ester Ideskog has performed all over Europe, she's yet to break out in America. Luckily all of us stuck stateside can still get a sneak peek with her new single "Got To Get Out." It's a thrilling, deceptively upbeat jam, but as Ideskog notes, the song has some seriously dark undertones.
"Got To Get Out" is about my hometown Stockholm and how it's filled with people experiencing a sense of isolation and separation, how it makes you feel lonely in a crowd," she explains. "It’s fascinating that people can live so close together without really noticing one another. It's about exploring the city nightlife and the tendencies people have to chase after the experiences that will cause the best story to tell the next day instead of enjoying the happiness of the moment."
