After spending so long thinking ‘is that a misspelling?’, I finally came to the conclusion that classical downtempo singer and composer boerd actually had a genius name! Boerd’s new single ‘It Fades Away’ taps into that melancholy of today as it gently shuffles along wistfully. The lazy guitar, breezy vocals, sad drums and keyboards merge with the vinyl spits to create something quite lonely. I’m definitely getting chilled Bibio and Boards of Canada vibes.
‘It Fades Away’ comes off boerd’s new EP called ‘Misplaced I’. It is due out on the 31st May. Chill out with the single which is out now below. Interestingly, when he isn’t producing this kind of music, he is a bass player for the Royal Swedish Opera, Swedish Radio Symphony, and Stockholm Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. There’s a future mash-up I’d love to hear!
