a note about this track

The time may be NOW to get familiar with an up-and-coming Norwegian singer by the name of Mr. Little Jeans (AKA Monica Birkenes – there’s no actual ‘Mr.’ in this outfit), who has been quietly dropping tracks via her Soundcloud page a little over a year now. The reason is; this little vocalist is showing huge talent with her recent cover (and transformation) of Arcade Fire’s super smash track, “The Suburbs”.
