Døssi ends 2021 with a message of hope on “let’s be okay”

Ingrid Døssland - aka the incredible Norwegian artist døssi - released her debut EP bluebirds earlier this year.

A collection of songs about loss, grief and memory shaded in deep blue hues, it established døssi as a timeless storyteller with a unique voice.

On 1 October she returned with new music, sketching her world in lighter tones on brand new single “time will heal her”. Now, as the year ends and following a series of well-received shows at by: Larm festival, døssi is releasing one final track in the shape of the touching, almost seasonal “let’s be okay”. It’s out 3 December on GEMS/Warner Music Norway.

A Christmas song that’s not really a Christmas song, “let’s be okay” continues the theme of healing and gentle encouragement found on “time will heal her”. The pleading refrain of “we’re not okay / let’s be okay” is set against an open sky – clear and hopeful, yet something scary and overwhelmingly vast. The music is classically døssi: chimes of acoustic guitar and beautiful harmonies surrounded by a gentle swirl of ambient noise.

“You know when everything seems to feel magical, it’s Christmas soon, it’s starry and it’s completely quiet – almost too quiet? That’s what this song is about,” says døssi. “Realising that maybe you should take some action to preserve all the good you have, and not let it fade slowly. Such feelings are a little extra easy to feel now that the time is approaching for expectations of Christmas joy, perfect families and New Year celebrations with those closest to you. Then it is easy to think about what you have – and what you do not have. It’s also a song about holding on to hope…

“Let’s be okay” is out 3 December on GEMS / Warner Music Norway. døssi plays Trondheim Calling in February 2022.

“Sunshine melodies bring a brightness that land and catch against the waves; so bright, in fact, that their beauty brings a desire to look head on into their sharp, hurtful glow.” – Secret Meeting on “behold“.
