Usually, we would be down in Groningen for a few days of amazing live artists and industry panels. However, this year’s edition of Eurosonic Noorderslag will be completely online. That's why we've selected 6 amazing, European artists for you to check out who are familiar to the ESNS stage!
Elias Mazian (NL)
2020 was a dark year, but Elias Mazian gave us a ray of light by releasing his first LP entitled ‘Vrij Van Dromen’. The 7-track record, released on Job Jobse’s label De Vlieger, provided us with stunning dreamy Dutch synth-pop tracks about love and heartbreak.

RIMON burst onto the scene with her 2018 release ‘Grace’. Since then, the Amsterdam-raised soulful RnB singer has been delivering a message of empowerment through her music and striking visuals. Her sophomore EP ‘I Shine, U Shine’ was released in 2020, and thankfully for us: much more music is on the horizon for 2021!

Benedict Cork (UK)
Benedict Cork is ready to take 2021 by storm! Deemed ‘sensational... a voice to look out for’ by Sir Elton John, this UK singer-songwriter is making waves with his unique mix of classic piano and heartfelt storytelling as he’s gearing up to release new music this year as well as play a solo show on April 7 at Melkweg in Amsterdam!

Melenas is no stranger to the European music scene: this is their second consecutive year performing at Eurosonic! Originating from Pamplona, Spain, the indie garage-pop quartet burst on the scene in 2016 with their debut album and has been killing it ever since. Their second LP, ‘Dias Raros’, was released in May 2020, perfectly capturing the strange times in which we live with sweet harmonies and melodies wrapped in an 80’s artsy punk-rock vibe.

Austrian singer OSKA’s songs are slightly dimmed but never completely sinister, and her sensitive singer-songwriter pop immediately casts a spell over her listeners. On her newly-released debut EP 'Honeymoon Phase', OSKA recalls the past and reflects on the various stages of her young life. No wonder she’s been invited to perform at this year's ESNS to charm the rest of Europe with her unique brand of uplifting chilled pop.
