NOAH GUNDERSEN – SINGLE REVIEW

Noah Gundersen – Bad Desire (Cooking Vinyl) 
Noah Gundersen - Bad Desire


Release Date: Out Now

Every now and again there are those artists that everyone around you is talking about but you just haven’t hooked in to yet. Now, it’s not through a lack of interest but just through not crossing paths with the music which, you know, just happens sometimes. Noah Gundersen is one such musician that a number of, shall we say, ‘acquaintances’ have been banging on about for some time and, luckily, his new single ‘Bad Desire’ just landed in my lap. The Seattle artist is, undoubtedly, a supreme talent but one that seeps in to your consciousness rather than one that screams for your attention. The keys that open this particular tune are so soft that you wouldn’t be surprised to discover the keys had been covered in velvet before committing anything to tape. Gundersen’s voice is dusky and smooth with just enough teeth-clenched growl when you need it to urge those drums on. This is the kind of song that would make grown, testosterone fuelled men cry at the thought of their dead partner/mother/grandmother/cat on a wet day when they could just do with a hug and a bit of looking after. Simply beautiful stuff, I’m converted.
