OUT MAY 10 VIA SLOW FUTURE VAULT
Los Angeles, CA (April 26, 2019) – Following Night Gestalt’s “Dark Summer” which had EARMILK’s Katey Ceccarellisaying the song “…is a haunting journey of sound…with a spine-chilling slow build and devastating vocals from another realm,” comes the latest offering, “And The Bells Sang Together,” today, April 26.
The new track marks the third single from Night Gestalt’s forthcoming sophomore album, New Glasir, and continues to showcase Olof Cornéer’s ability to weave intricate soundscapes that border on the individualistic experimentation of IDM, the atmospheric textures of ambient and the nuanced minimalism of post-classical, all without conforming to the restrictions of any one genre.

New Glasir—the follow up to 2015’s acclaimed debut ONE—delivers 10-tracks mastered by Taylor Deupree at 12k Mastering andis due Friday, May 10 (via Slow Future Vault). The album highlights the experimental ambitions of Cornéer, one half of EDM duo Dada Life, within the electronic music landscape. “And The Bells Sang Together” follows the album’s lead single, “A Social Contract,” and above mentioned “Dark Summer.”
“Night Gestalt was born a few years ago when I felt the urge to get back to the electronic music I loved as a kid in the ‘90s,” says Cornéer. “It’s a bit ambient, but it’s also more song based. It’s experimental and electronic, but it’s also a bit post-classical. I started making arpeggios and realized I loved them so much I created the whole first Night Gestalt album around arpeggios. This new one is also based on arpeggios, but it’s not as obvious. To me an arpeggio has everything that music needs to be interesting: rhythm, melody, harmony and structure.”
Contrasting Night Gestalt’s ONE and New Glasir albums, Cornéer says: “Musically the first album was black and white. It was the empty void of the universe. New Glasiris more melancholic. The first was only electronic bleeps and voices; very dark and spacious. New Glasir is piano and bleeps and is overall is more analog. The visuals go with the melancholy too. Golden hour sunset through VHS-nostalgia, instead of black and white.”
Each single from New Glasir will be accompanied by a B-side; a one-of-a-kind piece from Night Gestalt’s Vault Series. To those unfamiliar with the series, a track is put to vinyl then buried in an undisclosed location (could be on any continent) and then all digital stems, mixes and the master are destroyed permanently. There ends up being only one true piece of the music in existence—the buried vinyl record—at which point the GPS coordinates are released.
