28-year-old Norwegian pop singer Dagny Norvoll Sandvik, better known as Dagny, hails from the northern city of Tromsø. She is the daughter of jazz guitarist/composer Øystein Norvoll and jazz singer Marit Sandvik. Dagny relocated to London, England in her twenties before her debut single, “Backbeat,” appeared in September 2015. The “Wearing Nothing” single was issued in 2017, with the atmospheric “That Feeling When” following in early 2018. However, Norwegian pop singer wearing nothing, doesn’t literarily means she is naked.
Dagny broke through in 2016 with her killer single ‘Backbeat’. To say it was successful might be a bit of an understatement (it got a premiere from Zane Lowe, and has been streamed a whopping 30 million times), putting huge momentum behind her debut EP ‘Ultraviolet’.

Touring the U. S.
Last year she toured the U. S. for the first time after having released her “first proper love song”, something she believes is “a little overdue” and claiming she has lots of new music she’s ready to share with the world.
In Dagny’s latest single ‘Wearing Nothing’ she is laying it all bare. It is a bona fide pop belter, packed with upbeat electronic percussion and funk-tinged bass that combines with explosive force as she repeats “when I’m with you I feel like wearing nothing”.

However, just because she’s talking about being naked though doesn’t necessarily mean she’s actually naked. It’s more of a metaphor for being so at ease with someone else that there’s an extreme sense of closeness.

Speaking of the track, Dagny explains: “The song is called ‘Wearing Nothing’ but it’s not just about wanting to be naked with someone. It’s about wanting to be completely bare together with someone and be as close as possible both emotionally and physically even to the point where a piece of clothing feels like too much in-between. I believe it’s my most intimate song to date”.
