Single Review: Margaret Berger – Running With Scissors


Margaret Berger drops new single ‘Running With Scissors’
At the start of this year Margaret Berger announced to have a fresh new start in her career. The Norwegian pop star who brought her country into the top 5 of the Eurovision Song Contest in 2013 with the stunning ‘I Feed You My Love’ decided to move on independently without having to deal with a major record label and launched the very personal single ‘Apologize’. She is now ready to launch another single, titled ‘Running With Scissors’, which premiered on Norwegian radio station NRK. The track will officially come out on the 23rd of September.

Berger has been serving us flawless electronic pop for years now and she continues to do so with ‘Running With Scissors’. It is a midtempo track with dominant vocal effects in the verses and a big soaring melody follows. In terms of vibe and pace, it’s similar to what she did on ‘Apologize’, although this time around the mood is a little lighter. ‘Running With Scissors’ sounds like it could have been part of Kyla La Grange’s Cut Your Teeth album and that is quite a good soundscape to operate in, isn’t it? Let us hope an all new Margaret Berger album follows soon!
