Nico Sereba and Vincent Dery make up the duo known as Nico & Vinz. They only formed in 2009, and originally called themselves "Envy". Hailing from Oslo, Norway, they have already conquered the Scandinavian music scene with their song, "Am I Wrong". Introduced to the states in April, it is already rising in the US Top 100 Charts. In early May, it made it onto the iTunes Top 10 singles chart.
Nico & Vinz believe their cultural backgrounds have a lot to do with their musical influences: "We are Norwegian and African. It is important for us to inspire. We sing about things we’ve been going through and about finding ourselves. To us it’s important to have a message, and the goal for us is to inspire people to find happiness. We try to be 100% us. That mixture and that balance is what creates us". They went to Botswana to film the music video for "Am I Wrong" to show a more positive portrayal of Africa in the media.
The duo's sound has already been likened to The Police and many have already named them the top music group to watch in 2014.
