Anjunadeep has introduced us to another artist to add to our ones-to-watch list. They’re gearing up to drop a mini LP titled ‘Static‘ composed by Swedish producer and musician, boerd. A few weeks ago they shared the first single off the LP called “Blind” and shared a stunning video to go along with it. Much like the video, “Blind,” evokes a melancholic beauty that’s as romantic as it is heartbreaking.
The video takes us through a day in the life of a couple that sees its ups and downs, but still remains raw and relatable. It’s interesting that for his day job he is an active member of a Swedish opera house orchestra because his songs are beautifully composed with great structure and resolution. Yesterday the label shared the second single from the release called “Fragment II” and we are sucked back into his engulfing ambient soundscapes this time with the help of some impactful and piercing piano chords. Perfect for a rainy day.
Stream both singles after the jump and keep an ear out for the release on April 6th!
