Today, Norwegian artist Gundelach is back with his first new single since the release of his debut EP last year. The track is titled “Garden” and it premiered today with The Line of Best Fithere.
A churning disco track anchored by a smooth-as-silk bassline that rolls like a tidal wave, “Garden” marks a new chapter for Gundelach, the first single in a string of new collaborations from his forthcoming debut LP.
“Garden” is a co-production with John Calvert (NAO, Ghostpoet), co-written by Norwegian hip-hop producer Aksel Carlsen (Unge Ferrari, Arif), and had some excellent hands behind the boards to bring it home with mixing by Knut Sævik (Mungolian Jetset) and mastering by Chris Sansom (Cashmere Cat, Todd Terje).
Born Kai Gundelach, the budding artist released his debut self-titled EP May 2016, which firmly established him as one of Norway’s most intriguing new pop artists. Driven by knockout singles “Spiders” and “Fjernsynet,” Gundelach drew praise from both media and streaming editorial at Spotify, Apple, and TIDAL, and his effortless falsetto and Nordic-noir analog-electronic production drove him from being an underground favorite to a major crossover artist of the year in Norway.
Following performances at major summer festivals such as Roskilde and Øya, as well as sold out shows at theater-sized venues, his debut EP was nominated for Pop Album at Norway’s Grammy equivalent (Spellemann Awards). International recognition has also led to shows across Europe and heavy radio play in Germany and the UK. See Gundelach live at the following upcoming dates:
Fri, June 9 // Basel Switzerland @ Imagine Festival Fri, June 23 // Oslo, Norway @ Piknik I Parken Sat, July 22 // Vinje, Norway @ Vinjerock Sat, Aug 9 // Haugesund, Norway @ Vangen Festival
