Icelandic-born, Berlin-based Máni Orrason is an enigmatic artist who has this natural ability to happily transcend genres as he explores the world of love, loss & despair in his music. He first found success in his homeland at the age of 16 when he released his No.1 Icelandic pop-folk hit Fed All My Days. After having released two albums in 2015 & 2018, Máni decided to move to Berlin & shake up his sound with an electronic and modern pop twist on his latest Baby Angel EP with the help of producer Nikolai Potthoff. Preceding the arrival of his newest collection BABY ANGEL LOVES YOU, ‘I Go Up’ is a deft side-step to the off-kilter pop of which fans have been accustomed. “When I started making music, I lived on a farm in Iceland and and all this stuff that I found on YouTube, all this kinda punk rock, pop-punk stuff was such an escape for me,” Orrason shares. “I wanted to write a song for my 13, 14-year-old self. I just wanted to write a two-minute, three chords and ‘fuck you!’ song.”
