Despite having released a single at the age of 10 in Iceland and some other collaborations, Gud Jon‘s solo music career really starts today with the premiere of “Alright For Night”. The track is taken from UK producer Count Counsellor‘s label From Concentrate 6-track EP “6 fl.oz”.
Since his first release when he was a child, Gud Jon has kept on being active as a musician as he was a soloist in London Contemporary Voices and provided vocals for Young Fathers. It’s on a remote island in Norway that he has worked on this new single, “Alright For Night”. The track immediately reminds us of James Blake or Bon Iver‘s latest album with an approach that would draw inspiration more from the choral scene than from folk music. The production is a patchwork of crafted electronic and organic elements and loops. Here, Gud Jon‘s vocals form the heart of this track that sounds like an initiatory rite in the deep forest.
About “Alright For Night” and the recording sessions, Gud Jon detailed:
Gud Jon‘s “Alright For Night” is part of a 6-track compilation, “6 fl.oz”, which will be released this October.
