Listen to Christian

“Hot Soul” is the name of Christian Bruzelius & The Upsouls’ new EP that contains everything one could wish for. Both the individual songs and the EP as a whole deliver fantastic, dynamic music with stylish arrangements that captivate the listener from the first listen! One of the highlights for Christian was the guitar solo on the title track “Hot Soul” played by Erik Briggsta, something we can truly agree with!  To say the least, it’s an adrenaline-filled experience.

We asked Christian about the finished EP:

“I’m very proud of the songs on the album and feel that each one can stand on its own and tell its own story. Overall, I think they together give a good representation of my music, style, and songwriting.”

Christian explains that some of the songs were intensely developed when inspiration was at its peak, but there are also some older gems on the album. “Nothing To It” is one of those songs that he has wanted to release for a long time but hasn’t done so because it was challenging to find the right arrangement that felt right to him. But finally, it happened, and we are all grateful for it; “Nothing To It” is an amazing experience to listen to – from start to finish. From the intimate recording of Christian’s vocals on a Neumann U87 microphone to the fantastic drums played by Johan Lundsten, there is not a dull moment during the almost 5-minute-long song.

Filip Killander, who has been the recording engineer and producer of the EP, describes the recording process as inspiring, challenging, and joyful:
“Being surrounded by so many musical talents as I have been during this project has been luxurious. I feel spoiled and very grateful to have been a part of the project.”

KMR does a lot, very well. Professional, organized, clear, and pleasant.
