Kasbo embraces cinematic sound in final single ahead of sophomore LP
Kasbo has steadily released singles from his sophomore studio album, The Making of a Paracosm through 2020 to date. Each album rollout, however, must eventually come to a close, and with this in mind, the Swedish producer has shared the LP’s sixth and final single pre-release, “Lune.”
“Lune” is cinematic to its core, with flowing melodies propelled by Vancouver Sleep Clinic‘s, which pairs seamlessly with Kasbo’s indie-electronic crossover style.
Kasbo described the single’s serendipitous start, stating,
“I started ‘Lune’ right before my Places We Don’t Know tour in late 2018 where Tim (of Vancouver Sleep Clinic) was supporting me. I remember working on the song in the back of the tour bus and thinking to myself that Tim would be the perfect fit for the song, having been inspired by falsetto vocals from Bon Iver and Sigur Ros when making the instrumental.
We never ended up recording anything on tour, but in March this year, I convinced him to come to Gothenburg to hang out and record in my studio. He came, and that night was when [the coronavirus] really broke loose. [President] Trump announced that he was closing travel to the states, and Tim, who was going back there, was really confused about what to do. It all felt like a big movie; it felt like we both now were stranded in Gothenburg all of a sudden, which was a very surreal feeling at the time. We ended up recording the vocals for ‘Lune’ that same night. Tim came up with the melody line really fast and we spent the rest of the night fine-tuning the mixing, lyrics, and overall vibe. [I’m] so happy we finally made something happen together.”
