Gundelach Debut Single Spiders
Since the age of 16, Kai Gundelach has been a fixture In Oslo’s renowned club scene (the same scene that spawned Todd Terje and André Bratten), first as an underage space disco enthusiast with a knack for getting past doormen and later as a DJ warming up for some of his teenage heroes. Kai’s true musical ambitions, however, lie in writing introspective and honest pop songs, a craft he honed alone in his bedroom while earning a living playing records.
Kai began to share his songs under the moniker Gundelach in late 2014, which led to him being handpicked by Say Lou Lou to support on their album tour, along with the release of his first track “Alone In The Night” in Norway and Sweden. The track now has nearly 1MM streams on Spotify.
After sending demos to Joel Ford (of Ford & Lopatin and Young Ejecta, who has also produced the likes of Autre Ne Veut, Oneohtrix Point Never and featured on Cyril Hahn and Com Truise tracks), the two began a collaboration and recorded Gundelach’s debut EP in New York alongside Al Carlson (who has worked with Ariel Pink, Tim Hecker, etc.).
Gundelach’s debut single “Spiders” will saw an official release on Friday, Nov 20 via Cosmos (Say Lou Lou, Naomi Pilgrim, etc). Combining intricate electronics overlaid with wispy vocals and pulsating beats, “Spiders” is the first offering from Gundelach’s debut EP and just a taste of what’s to come from one of Norway’s newest rising talents.
Stay tuned for more news on the EP out early 2016.
