House legends Klangkarussell have released their latest single, ‘Calling Out Your Name’ featuring Swedish alt-rock band Mando Diao on the 2nd of June via Bias Beach Records. The single follows ‘This Love (Ft. Poppy Baskcomb)’ as well as their gold-status release, ‘Home’ which was written and sung by renowned lyricist songwriter Andrew Jackson (Dua Lipa, Kygo, Gryffin and Eminem) and recently appeared in the Amadeus Austrian Music Awards, winning the Electronic/Dance category as well as being nominated for Song Of The Year. ‘Home’ sold over 15 000 copies with over 15 million plays across platforms. The duo earned platinum for their hit debut single, ‘Sonnentanz’ which became a global, chart-topping hit reaching the Top 10 in six countries and No. 3 in UK Charts. Their run of latest releases have already reached over 100 million streams across platforms.
The Klangkarussell duo are both from Salzburg, Austria however, Tobias Rieser is currently based in Vienna while Adrian Held is based in Berlin, Germany. The duo have performed around the world including Austria, Switzerland, most of Europe, London, and even Columbia. While their own sound remains fiercely independent, Klangkarussell’s music wouldn’t be out of place on a playlist with names such as Bastille, Imagine Dragons and OneDirection.
Light and airy, ‘Calling Out Your Name’ carries all of that feel-good charm fit for a summer anthem. Finding its way into your mind and holding on, the single’s simple lyrics are perfect for a road trip, when you can’t help but let loose and embrace the unexpected.
Jens Siverstedt of Mando Diao tells us: “I remember when Björn and I got down to Berlin and rented an apartment and there was a piano. Spring was in the air, we sat by the piano and the chorus landed on us. Day after we met up with the beautiful lads and friends Adrian and Tobias from Klangkarussell in their studio to produce and finish the track”
