Once an artist is successful with a particular brand of music then inevitably similar sounding stuff comes out afterwards. Now, I am not saying that Danish singer Lukas Graham is exactly like Bruno Mars but there are enough similarities that it is noticeable. His debut release has got that neo soul sound about it. He calls it ghetto pop. I would say it is more accurately blue eyed soul. Besides the Bruno Mars influence you will hear a little Beatles, Joni Mitchell and Chicago and more modern ones like Coldplay and Ed Sheeran on the tracks contained on the self-titled album. He seems to have hit a nerve as the single “7 Years” has been on very high rotation on Top 40 radio stations.
