Nils Frahm – ‘Says’

Nils Frahm – ‘Says’

Nils Frahm, if you dont know him already would definitely have to go down as one of the most exciting new acts that I’ve been listening to in the past couple of years. Perhaps more downbeat and often mellow than the more well known electronica heavyweights but this guy has it going on.

A pure piano man at heart from a young age who has some unconventional ideas on it and he knows how to showcase it admirably.Catch him before he’s massive ( which he pretty much already is). He’s playing in Dublin this summer in June and would be well worth seeing.

He is, of course, yet another German wonderkid. One would wonder how do they keep up such a healthy vibrant production line? Then again they are German.

I’ve been meaning to post this masterpiece for a while now. The video is truly magnificent aswell. It’s very abstract which suits the track allowing your mind to wander to a blissful terrain saturated in harmonies.

If you’re not familiar with his work get some. Check out more from one of Europe’s finest electronics artists here:

In the meantime be prepared for an audiovisual treat. This an extremely lovely instrumental starting slowly and building towards what I can only summarize as an entity that builds towards wall of sound if you will leaving you asking for more after this eight minute or so beauty.

Pure Euphony!

Listen out for ; the finale

I have also included his studio version which actually demonstrates Nils’ skills in action. It’s from the excellent KEXP station in Seattle. They do some great shows. Anyway hope you enjoy.
