Gidge – For Seoul
''For what we’ve noticed, they like to create some sort of anxiety to the listener, building consistent and long pieces enriched with small appointments reaching several moments of “sadness” and excitement. They always keep the best part of the songs to the end.” By Golden Scissors
Gidge consists of Jonatan Nilsson and Ludvig Stolterman, who were born and raised outside of Umeå, a small city in northern Sweden. Their main source of inspiration is the vast, snow covered woodlands of the North. They have for instance recorded all of their percussions in the forest, using only the sticks and rocks that can be found there. Gidge are currently located in Paris, where they have been developing their live performance for the last six months or so.
“For Seoul” came about after the duo went on a trip through Asia, and spent a number of days in the South Korean capital. They fell in love with Seoul, and later on created this two-part hymn for the giant city.
