One part cinematic indie instrumentals, one part dark electronica production, plus two parts serene Thom Yorke-esque vocals and yes, we are closing our eyes to exit this universe and enter another.
Klangstof is the brainchild of Norwegian singer-songwriter Koen van der Wardt, who released his debut album Close Eyes To Exit on Sept. 9 via MOAG Records. The record contains eleven multi-dimensional, vibrant-yet-tranquil tracks tailored to transcend from the current reality and into a happy place of sorts. Standouts include “Hostage” and “Island,” two previously released singles that gave us highly enticing previews of what was to come on the full record.
Throw this one on next time you aim to enter full zen mode. We know we will.
