There is a naked honesty in Erik Fasten’s music that is difficult to resist. It´s delightfully poetic, yet deeply rooted in raw reality. Take your time to really listen and find yourself enveloped in an evocative world, where the very core emotion can express its self freely.
Parallells can be drawn to artists like Elliot Smith, Nick Drake or Leonard Cohen, but Erik’s music stands very firmly on its own.
The first single is the song ”Overwhelmed”, accompanied by a video produced by Lucy film group and directed by Lars Bergbom.
Erik: ”Overwhelmed was the first song I wrote when thoughts of a solo project first appeared. The lyrics deal with feelings of guilt on some level. I like how it turned out!” The single also comes with the b-side ”There Will be Blood” and it is a song that should not be missed!
