Swedish duo Gidge will release their new album, ‘New Light’, via Dutch label Atomnation next month.
Set for release on 6th November, the nine track album finds the Umeå pair pushing their cinematic sound to new heights. Producing music together for over half a decade now, Gidge have honed a sound rooted in the Swedish landscape, using recordings of nature to inform their expansive, often ethereal, style. Fans of Jon Hopkins and Kelly Lee Owens will find plenty to love in their work.
‘New Light’ follows the duo’s 2014 debut LP, ‘Autumn Bells’, and is their most accomplished work to date, mixing elements of contemporary classical music, vocal samples, field recordings and analog synthesis with crisp, organic beats. You can hear the album’s triumphant and atmospheric centrepiece, ‘The Cascades’, below.
