Golden Scissors


Gidge - For Seoul Pt

Gidge is a project from Swedish duo Jonatan Nilsson and Ludvig Stolterman. The duo is currently located in Paris, where they have been developing their live performance for the last six months. We were introduced to their music when El Perro Del Mar shared a remix they did for the single “Hold Off The Dawn” |listen/download|. Since then we’ve been anxiously waiting to  listen to some of their original material. Finally the boys from the small city of Umeå unveiled today a brand new EP titled “For Seoul.” We’re completely in love for the second track “For Seoul Pt.I.” Honestly, it’s really surprising the lack of hype around their music. We truly feel that they deserve a shout here at Golden Scissors. The new work could easily be compared with SOHN or maybe it’s just Gidge. If you’re fan of cinematic, dark environments, this track will made your day. It’s a promise. For what we’ve noticed, they like to create some sort of anxiety to the listener, building consistent and long pieces enriched with small appointments reaching several moments of “sadness”  and excitement. They always keep the best part of the songs to the end. Excellent chord progression, together with a transcendental vocal sample copiously designed, exploding around the min 3:59 putting together all elements they teased us along the piece. You can download the entire EP for free via the Atomnation bandcamp, which also includes a remix from Applescal. Absolutely brilliant.
