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’s a bumpy disco track anchored by strong vocals and 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, it was co-produced with John Calvert (NAO, Ghostpoet) and co-written by Norwegian hip-hop producer Aksel Carlsen (Unge Ferrari, Arif).
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.
Bonus track: “Fjernsynet”

Slow Club is Sheffield boy-girl duo Charles Watson (guitar, vocals, piano) and Rebecca Taylor (drums, vocals, guitar). Created in 2005, the band signed with Moshi Moshi Records and released their debut album Yeah So in 2009.
In 2014 they produced their most ambitious and complete record yet, Complete Surrender, touching on everything from Motown to the immaculately produced pop of the 1970s. Equally influenced by Frankie Valli and David Bowie the album sounded like an instant classic, something so familiar and timeless it’s difficult to believe it wasn’t recorded 30 years ago.
