To get your Friday started off right, we're proud to premiere a new light and airy track coming all the way from Norway!
29 year old pianist-songwriter-producer-extrordinaire Alexander von Mehren is about to release his bi-lingual (French and English) alt-pop debut album Aéropop (available August 20th via The Control Group) and successfully brings listeners into his world of '60s and '70s influenced dream pop with his new single "Winter Comes."
Heavily reminiscent of GMG 41 cover stars of Montreal's "Penelope" (from 2001's Coquelicot Asleep in the Poppies: A Variety of Whimsical Verse), "Winter Comes" features a bouncy beat decorated beautifully by a string and woodwind section that carefully helps you float through the three minute track. Beyond von Mehren's interest in the analog and vintage soundtracks, you can definitely hear some Kevin Barnes influence--especially in the song's disco-synth breakdown.
Get caught up with von Mehren in "Winter Comes" now and make sure to check out Aéropop's track listing below!
