If his debut EP and follow up ‘Games’ which featured his friend – artist ARY, then Duck Hunting, the new single from Norwegian singer-songwriter Gundelach is really going to set the cat amongst the pigeons. Not in a literal sense though, this is smooth, post-Fleetwood Mac soul, full of sweeping analogue synths, and his own understated falsetto.
Kai, aka Gundelach says of the track “The song is about being in a relationship, about being depressed and having someone helping you through it. I was listening to “I’m on fire” by Bruce Springsteen on repeat all summer and wanted to channel the feeling of that song with a song of my own. I sat down with my Juno 60 and had it ready in no time. Ultimately it’s hopeful but still sad. I named the demo “Duck Hunting” because it symbolized nostalgia to me and it just stuck. I used to play that game on my Nintendo, with the plastic gun and everything.”
Its taken from his forthcoming Baltus LP, recorded between Oslo and London with Knut Sævik (Mungolian Jetset), John Calvert (Ghostpoet, NAO), and Øyvind Mathisen (Cezinando, Nils Bech) as co-producers, its out March 16th via U OK? DUck Hunting is out right now.
