Baeble First Play: The Shimmering Neo Disco of Bernhoft
    • MONDAY, APRIL 25, 2016

    If the 2010s only accomplish one thing and that one thing is making everybody realize that disco was great and that Nile Rodgers was a god amongst men, then the 2010s will have been worth it. Dance music that isn't EDM is in the midst of a huge revival at the moment, and a lot of the roots of this renaissance have their basis in the thumping percussion and glittering keys that Nile Rodgers helped to bring into practice (and helped bring back again on Daft Punk's Random Access Memories) and Norwegian singer-songwriter Bernhoft is the latest act to live up to Rodgers' rich legacy.

    We've got the exclusive premiere of the lyric video for Bernhoft's latest single, "Stop/Shutup," which is a shimmering bit of Earth, Wind, and Fire meets contemporary alt-pop influences. We've been big fans of Bernhoft's ever since 2011's Solidarity Breaks and 2014's Islander, but "Stop/Shutup" finds the Scandinavian performer in ful maximalist pop mode with the sort of track that could dominate the radio this summer not unlike "Get Lucky" three years ago. And it's got one of the most deliciously ironic choruses in ages with "Stop. Shut up. Don't Sing. Don't move at all" which will be damn near impossible once this track worms its way into your head.

    The Stop/Shutup/Shout It Out EP is due out May 6th.
