GDM is not immune to reviewing singles in the modern day environment. We did one recently: Greek band Rusty Cadillac, and no doubt you'll be seeing a lot more in the future. Norwegian chanteuse Bente Smaavik, many of you will remember from her days as lead singer with Blonde On Blonde back in the 80's, is reaching out to the modern day audience with a series of singles, that have been staggered as releases over the last few months. A good approach actually, though stuck right in the middle of those who prefer albums, and those who prefer the iTunes model of the music industry. Either way, each base is covered right?

The Songs
The newest single is 'Meant To Be', and I gotta say, I really enjoyed this, as it's pretty true to all the core pre-requisites of melodic rock. The chorus is particularly magical.. Our love will stay forever... Quite simply, this is pretty catchy, and very easy on the ear, and is pitched at the right length for radio and internet sites like GDM! No doubt it will be enjoyed by much of this site's readership!

In Summary
Bente's first single 'Sweet Summer Feeling' was released back in October 2013, and I really should go back and revisit that one, as a compendium to this, as the music that Bente and her crew are releasing, is tailor-made for GDM. Boo Yeah!
