Norwegian singer-songwriter Luke Faas just dropped his delicious debut EP today.
Produced by Nicolay Tangen Svennæs (Bernhoft, Emilie Nicolas) Apathy contains seven tracks—including intro and outro tracks—all laced with funky electronic beats while integrating elements of classic soul and R&B.
Faas recently shared the official music video for "Why Bother," the second single released from the EP, which discusses a troubling friendship. The video, sparked by an idea Faas had, was created with the help of Oslo-based cinematographer Kristoffer Grindheim.
"I got the idea for the video the same week I recorded 'Why Bother', walking around The Vigeland Museum in Oslo," Faas said. "It's packed with Gustav Vigeland's beautiful sculptures that expresses the full array of human life, joys and struggles. The sculptures connected so well to how I felt writing the song, so I decided I had to do a video there.
"Despite our plan to run around in the dark with a camera and a big light rig, possibly damaging the sculptures, the museum was super helpful and stoked about the project. Shooting it with the super skilled director Kristoffer Grindheim was so much fun, and we're so happy we got the opportunity to unite different art disciplines in the video."
Along with his debut single "Should've Seen It," the two tracks quickly accumulated more than 250,000 streams and have received regular play by Norway's most influential radio channel NRK P3.
Apathy is now available to download or stream on digital music platforms.
