Discovery: Mats Dernánd

Mats Dernánd is an Örebro, Sweden-based folk pop singer songwriter who has teamed up with a familiar singer for his latest track. A duet with York Calling favourite Luna Keller, it’s called We’ll Be Together.

By Graeme Smith

The track was written to celebrate the lifting of pandemic restrictions and tells the story of two friends who can finally be reunited after being forcibly kept apart for so long. It’s is expectedly bright and hopeful, delivered through a lively acoustic pop instrumental arrangement. Mats and Luna’s vocals work wonderfully together, particularly as they harmonise leading to the track’s soaring chorus.

Mats and Luna have never met in person, but were brought together remotely through a shared love of joyful song writing. Let’s hope there are more duets on the horizon. You can check out We’ll Be Together below.
