ERIK HASSLE PATHETIC (Song, Soundcloud) @@@@
This lovely little song could well be a defining moment for this undeniably talented Swede. Where as his undeniable talents earlier has been a bit scattered all over the place, as in the, in parts, lovely debut album and then the second, rather dull one, plus some edgeless EP’s, he’s now turned a new page and set on a quest for more soulful tunes. Which as it seems fits him rather perfectly. On Pathetic his smooth and gentle vocals elegantly and effortlessly rides over the thrifty, electro-soulful landscape, which is produced by SOHN, who also produced the magnificant Wrong Or Right EP for Kwabs. This well deservingly puts Mr. Hassle back in the spot of soulful talents to have a lookout for. Pathetic is taken from the forthcoming Somebody’s Party EP, due to be released in April.
