Pantha du Prince´s second single of his upcoming album “Garden Gaia” is out now! The new track “Blume,” which is German for “flower,” received its final polish through a conscious act of letting go. Pantha du Prince sent what was for him a finished track to Bendik Hovik Kjeldsberg in Oslo, who then intervened and rearranged everything. And it was Kieldsberg’s idea to have Helena Tusvik Rosenlund sing an additional track over Hendrik Weber’s reverberated vocals. On the track Pantha further allows for extremely fragile musical moods to simply exist and bolsters them with frequencies that seem to naturally communicate with us.
