Gundelach

As Gundelach, Norwegian producer and singer/songwriter Kai Gundelach makes poignant electro-pop that borrows from '80s synth pop and 2010s R&B. Growing up in Bærum, a town just outside of Oslo, he sang with a children's theater group, learned to play guitar at age 10, and listened to music ranging from black metal to hip-hop. In his teens, he fell in love with dance music and started DJ'ing when he was 17. Around this time, he began writing his own songs, but kept them secret for years. He played a demo of one of his songs, "Alone in the Night," for his manager, who connected him with producer Joel Ford. Ford co-produced the song with Gundelach, who released it as a Scandinavian single in 2015. The pair also worked together on 2016's official debut single "Spiders" and that year's self-titled EP. The following year saw the release of the single "Holy Water," which Gundelach based on a demo he recorded in an abandoned film studio. He reworked several of his other older songs for his first full-length, Baltus. Featuring the singles "Control" and "Duck Hunting" as well as collaborations with Norwegian singer/producer Ary, the album arrived on Terrible Records in 2018. ~ Heather Phares
