One of our favorite artists Kasbo is getting ready for a big year and we couldn’t be more excited. Over the years we’ve premiered quite a few songs dating all the way back to his Umbrella Club EP in his early days. Now he’s not only shared an absolutely amazing new single “Aldrig Mer” featuring Indie group TENDER, but he’s made the announcement that we can expect his debut album Places We Don’t Know on March 23 via Foreign Family Collective / Counter Records.
Last year we saw the Swede push his creative capacity in a big way, which we can pinpoint to his remix of Big Gigantic's "The Little Things" and then was followed by a string of singles ending the year with "Snow in Gothenburg" as he improves with each release.. He’s been releasing a string of singles off the project including “Lay It On Me” featuring Keiynan Lonsdale, “Bleed It Out” featuring Nea and “Snow In Gothenburg” so the album is shaping up quite nicely, to say the least.
"With his new 13 track project ‘Places We Don’t Know,’ Kasbo has refined his sound and come into his own. Throughout this album he excels creatively, producing his most compelling music to date. He actively explores juxtaposing ideas, creating tracks which are complex yet relatable, melancholic while still beautiful. For us, this is Kasbo at his best. We are proud to give this record a home at Foreign Family Collective and can’t wait for it to resonate with listeners like it did for us.” – ODESZA
On this newest single Kasbo and TENDER prove to be the perfect match on the mystical indie electronic song that might be his best yet. As always, Kasbo’s laidback melodies are filled with emotion brought to life with his refreshing sound design and TENDER’s whispery vocals serving as the perfect compliment. Kasbo is also heading out on his first headline North American tour this spring so be sure to catch that if he’s coming to a city near you – see dates below. I had the pleasure of catching Kasbo’s debut live show here in Denver, which was an amazing first taste of his live performance that’s in the same live lane as Flume and ODESZA utilizing live drums, keys and guitar. Enjoy!
