Watch: Kasper Bjørke feat. Toby Ernest ‘Water’, taken from the forthcoming ‘Nothing Gold Can Stay’ double EP)

The arrival of new Kasper Bjørke material is always something of a red letter day for serious music fans. His return to hfn music for the next stage in his musical journey makes total sense; after a couple of years making (beautiful) ambient music on Kompakt, it’s time for some of the signature beat driven music, that we have been craving.

Water is the first single taken from ‘Nothing Gold Can Stay’, the forthcoming double EP to be released in the fall and features Toby Ernest who also featured on his 2014 album ‘After Forever’ on Rush.

Toby returns on the slow burner ‘Water’ with a gloomy performance that describes a relationship gone sour with an almost surreal and self-destructive twist. It connects a soulful, sexual vibe with the distinctive, rich sound of a lush Bjørke production.
