Gundelach – Control

Gundelach by Fredrik Harper

Having just signed to Terrible Records (Blood Orange, Porches, Le1f), Norwegian producer and artist Gundelach shares the imaginative ‘Control’.

It is taken from the forth-coming ‘Baltus’ LP, and showcases Gundelach’s Nordic-noir sensibilities, using delicate synths, pulsating beats and his effortless falsetto voice to tell a story of deep personal depression.

Great News – You’re Mine

Great News

Time for something to lighten the mood from our favourite band of 2018, Great News.

Benjamin’s Brother – If I Could

Benjamin's Brother

We are excited about Benjamin’s Brother – an interesting indie-pop band from Tel Aviv.

Discussing topics such as violence, death, desire and love, and citing influences across several genres including Arabic, American folk and techno, it’s no surprise that their sound is expansive, yet tender.

Watch their video below, which was shot by Indy Hait, at the Tel Aviv Museum Of Art, on a 16mm film.

Sounds like: Tame Impala, SAMA, Mumford & Sons, Solomon Grey, Vancouver Sleep Clinic, Aquilo

CUT_ – It’s On


Dutch electronic duo CUT_ share ‘It’s On’, a song about the denial towards the demise of a relationship.

But they don’t just write about internal issues found in human nature, but also discuss topics on mass psychology and by analysing these aspects of our society, CUT_ attempts to find a way of coping with the messed up world we’re living in.

Sounds like: IYES, Massive Attack, Kllo

JOHN.K‘s electronic driven pop always catches our attention and ‘Best Of Me’ is no exception.

‘Best Of Me’ is JOHN.K’s fourth single and demonstrates another layer of maturity and artistry. Speaking of the track, he explains,

Timothy – Fly


We don’t know a great deal about Swedish singer/songwriter Timothy, but have really enjoyed listening to his second single, ‘Fly’.

Timothy explains, “The song is a long battle with a ghost of his, he interpreters his own song with a self-written poem. Wanting the listener to create their own story, rather than giving it all away.”

Sounds like: Bon Iver, Alex Vargas, Ry X, The xx, Keaton Henson, Matt Corby

Gundelach by Simon Skredderne

Gundelach returns with his new single ‘Fjernsynet (Norwegian for “television set”), which is poised to lift him to new heights with its cooly delivered falsetto over a driving rhythm, accentuated by beautiful analog-electronic production.

It is a broody, melancholic and catchy slow burner, perfect to listen to when driving late at night.

The ‘Spiders’ EP is co-produced by Joel Ford (of Ford & Lopatin and Young Ejecta). It is mixed by Al Carson (Ariel Pink, Tim Hecker).

‘Fjernsynet’ was released on 8 April via Cosmos (Say Lou Lou, Naomi Pilgrim). The EP is available for pre-order here.

Gundelach – Spiders



Norwegian, bedroom producer, Kai Gundelach has been sharing his songs under the moniker, Gundelach, since 2014. Prior to then, he used to party at clubs in his teens, and later went onto warming up for some of his teenage DJ heroes.

After supporting Say Lou Lou on their album tour, Gundelach sent some demos to Joel Ford (of Ford & Lopatin and Young Ejecta), the two began a collaboration that resulted in him recording his debut EP in New York with Joel and Al Carlson (who has worked with Ariel Pink, amongst others).

His latest gem is ‘Spiders’, which cleverly combines intricate electronics overlaid with wispy vocals and pulsating beats.
