Gundelach releases new single ‘Rolling In The Water’ through RCA Germany – Out Now!


Following his recent EP release, ‘Shape’, Gundelach rolls out ‘Rolling In The Water’ as the first single lifted from his next EP ‘Shifter’. Together, the two EP’s see the ‘Shapeshifter’ cycle completed into a full-length album. ‘Rolling In The Water’ is a dreamy folk-pop song that takes the listener deep into Gundelach's soundscapes. Starting off with simple acoustic guitar picking it evolves into a rhythmic driven danceable folk hymn that takes one into another universe. The song’s emphasis on sound over words allows Gundelach’s listeners to experience the cyclical nature of the waves as he explores his emotions. Quote “Shapeshifter is my interpretation of Theodor Kittelsen’s paintings of the mythology of Nøkken or The Nix in English. It is about cherishing the moment and trying to live as authentic as possible. Rain and sunshine. Hopelessness and bliss. After the release of his 2015 single ‘Spiders’ drawing the attention of tastemakers and indie-electro fans across the world, including BBC Radio 1, Wonderland and Complex, Gundelach has become the prince of melancholia with his pervasive falsetto and noir analogue productions. With his upcoming release, Gundelach once again illustrates his incredible ability to write and produce introspective and beautiful songs. Kai Gundelach spent his formative years as an underage DJ and guitar prodigy in Oslo’s nightlife scene, before entering the Scandinavian music scene with his debut single ‘Alone In The Night’. His self-titled EP from 2016, followed by the highly anticipated albums ‘Baltus’ from 2018 and ‘My Frail Body’ from 2020, has seen over 15 million streams to date and drew him critical acclaim from tastemaker publications such as Wonderland and Pigeons And Planes. His singles also saw significant radio rotation across the Nordics, plus several plays on BBC Radio 1 and Pharrell Williams included him in his Beats 1 show ‘OTHERtone’. In 2020, Gundelach received a nomination in the Norwegian Grammys in the ‘Best Electronica’ category, for his collaboration with AURORA on the song ‘Cynical Mind’. With a long list of headline shows across Europe behind him, including playing tastemaker festivals such as Roskilde (Copenhagen, Denmark) and Øya (Oslo, Norway), Gundelach has built a highly dedicated fanbase and a reputation for incredible live performances. Gundelach’s ‘Rolling In The Water’ is the perfect bridge to begin the second chapter of the ‘Shapeshifter’ narrative.
