Gundelach – Holy Water

We’ve been following Gundelach for a couple of years now and we’re happy to witness his growth as an artist, sealed last year with the release of his self-titled debut EP. Now it’s preparing himself to release another extended play, from which we already heard the disco-tinged Garden and now the cinematic Holy Water. This song is totally a different vibe though, with its demo that dates back to 2013 during a session at an abandoned film studio outside Oslo. It was brought back to life this year, with contributions from Nanna Brickmann and additional production from Stig (Unge Ferrari); the opening cinematic Rhodes chords and twisted synths now set the stage for the track’s dramatic soundscape, which is marked by pounding background beats and reverberated synth stabs over which float the fragile vocals of the Norwegian artist.

Speaking on the track, Gundelach said: “The lyrics of ‘Holy Water’ don’t really make sense as a narrative. It’s more of a feeling, something abstract. I get the same feeling every time I listen to it though. The same feeling I got when I listened to ‘Boris’ back in 2012.
