Rolling onto the scene at the young age of 22, Copenhagen based Swedish singer/songwriter Viktor Persson (aka Late Verlane), currently still studying at the Royal Danish Music Conservatory, has just released his first single, “Roll Like a Dummy”. With its 1960s inspired drum beat and heavy synths, this single shows a promising first look at this growing artist.
Opening with drums, reminiscent of the pop-rock era of the Beach Boys and the Beatles, the synths add a modern touch, keeping the track fresh. Persson’s voice sings over the song, staying consistent and low, perfect for the pop-rock vibe he’s created.

Being his first release, it’ll be interesting to see if he stays in the pop-rock genre or decides to branch out.
