Meet Swedish pop singer/actor Felix Sandman, who introduces his new single "Middle of Nowhere" today on Popdust.
Sandman says, "The inspiration for 'Middle of Nowhere' came from me finally finding happiness in life after a long time of not feeling it at all. The song is sort of bittersweet, where you have found love for someone but at the same time you are scared that you are moving too quickly, and you keep hoping that the person feels the same way that you do. It's like, should I really say that, or should I not? You are stuck in some sort of limbo."
Prior to going solo and starring in Netflix's original series Quicksand, Sandman was part of Scandinavia's biggest boyband FO&O, touring the globe and accumulating more than 80 million streams on Spotify. His debut single, "Every Single Day," launched his solo career, hitting the number one spot on the Swedish pop charts and staying there for four weeks. He followed with "Imprint," which rocketed to the top of the charts and collected Sweden's Rockbjörnen award for Breakthrough of the Year.
Last year saw Sandman drop his debut album, Emotions, delivering 11-tracks saturated with a parade of emotions, including dazzling highs and dark lows, supported by a national tour with Benjamin Ingrosso.
"Middle of Nowhere" opens on an infectious laid-back pop melody topped by Sandman's delicious, velvety tenor. When the buoyant rhythm enters, the tune takes on bright layers of sonic textures sustained by soft radiant harmonies.
The chorus showcases Sandman's seductive falsetto, infusing the lyrics with surface colors brimming with cool crystalline savors.
"Hope you feel the way I feel / I'm wide awake can I call you / You don't say too much / But I know it's never enough / I hope you feel the way I feel / Cause girl / It's like I'm stuck in the middle of nowhere."
