One of Norway’s Most Interesting Pop Artists

Pop artist Kai Gundelach or just “Gundelach” has drawn praise from both media and streaming platforms. Gundelach’x cool falsetto and Nordic-noir analog-electronic production quickly went from being an underground favorite to one of the big cross overs in Norway. His is often cited as one of Norway’s most interesting pop artists.

Also called the Norwegian master of melancholy, Gundelach premiered his latest video, made in collaboration with Oslo singer ARY, earlier this year. Before becoming a solo artist, Kai Gundelach worked as a DJ, having kept his music to himself for several years while playing the clubs of Oslo. It’s a good thing he decided to air them as they deserved to be heard.

The Universe of Gundelach
Dark and introverted but with danceable rhythms that evoke the neon lights of the dance floor, his songs mix analog synths and soulful R&B vocals with minimalistic, dark electro-pop. The universe of Gundelach is Nordic cool, bleak and cold but full of sexy sounds that touch your soul.
