Listen: ceo’s new song “MIRAGE”

on January 23, 2014, 7:22pm

Thus far, Swedish musician Eric Berglund’s (a.k.a. ceo) sophomore album, WONDERLAND, has proven to be the soundtrack for hyperactive club-goers everywhere. He kicked things off with the high-energy synth-pop jam “WHOREHOUSE” and somehow managed to amplify his efforts with the sugar-addled title track. Now, the Sincerely Yours co-founder pulls out the ol’ Kansas City Shuffle by slowing things down with “MIRAGE”.

Comparatively, it’s still a pretty fast-paced ballad, with its mix of thwacking percussion, pitch-shifted and sampled vocals, and sparkling synth tones. But there’s something slightly more deliberate and sensual to the cadence, making  it far more appropriate for romantic slow dances than sweat-soaked group grinding sessions. Listen in below.

WONDERLAND is due out February 4th via Modular Recordings. For more sounds, ceo’s bizarre take on Kanye West’s “Hold My Liquor”.
