You may remember Emmelie de Forest as the Danish winner of Eurovision 2013, but her new single Hopscotch is quite different to the folky ethno-pop of Only Teardrops. Hopscotch is a quirky, chanty number, pitched somewhere between Icona Pop and a children’s TV theme tune. It starts off cute and charming, if a little silly, but by the end it builds into a very catchy sing-along pop song. Thanks to the brilliant Scandipop for the tip-off on this one!
