Gidge are Jonatan Nilsson and Ludvig Stolterman who both hail from the town of Umeå in the north of Sweden. Together they make airy minimal electronic music, reminiscent of Burial. ‘I fell in love’ sounds like a declaration of love to nature, with drizzling rain and an airy soundscape. There’s even the sound of thunder! Lush and emotive, it mirrors the Scandinavian surrounding of wild forests and frosty landscapes perfectly. Like nature slowly taking over and breaking down an abandoned part of civilization, ‘I fell in love’ is not a quick listening but slowly, piece by piece, it will take a firm hold of you and suck you into its wilderness.
Gidge – You
“Spanning just over eight minutes, the production is essentially broken up in two separate parts—the first focusing on a deep percussion pattern and sequences of light melodies, while the tune’s latter half expands into more heavenly territory, where glistening pads and high-pitched vocals are anchored by massive bass and a heavy-handed four-on-the-floor. An ambitious composition, “You” is an impressively enticing first taste of what Gidge may be capable of on the debut LP the pair is expected to drop later this year.”
