WATCH THE VIDEO FOR “TALK ABOUT IT”
(New York- November 5, 2013) Erik Hassle’s brand new single “Talk About It” was officially released today in North America. To celebrate, Erik also premiered the brand new video for the track and has confirmed a full length set for release in 2014 on Record Company TEN/ RCA Records.
“Talk About It” was unveiled via Erik’s soundcloud page earlier this fall and quickly received an overwhelming response from fans across the globe, garnering almost eighty-thousand plays within just a matter of days.
“Talk About It” reflects the minimal R’n’B sound akin to Hassle’s taste and influences . Having lived in both Stockholm and London for the past few years, he found himself far more at ease in the studio, writing and recording darker melodies and lyrics that echoed recent life experiences; living in the city, falling in and out of love, and life as an early twenty-something male.
“Talk About It” is now available on all digital service providers including iTunes, Amazon.com and Spotify.
"Erik's vocals ache with the passion of Prince and the modern pop nous Timberlake." - VICE Magazine
"A spare, skittering beat and eerie, spaced-out production lead into a soaring pop chorus; it could almost be a Drake song. But still, it’s straight Nordic heartbreak when Hassle sings" - Idolator
"It’s soulful, raw and timeless in its simplicity but my god it’s more addictive than anything that has come before it. A big bold chorus hook is key: It sweeps Hassle’s smooth, elegant vocals into an epic cluster of sweeping synths, crashing cymbals and tight snare drum beats before releasing them back into more downbeat, minimal territory. - The Line of the Best Fit
" Hassle’s voice is heartfelt and soulful with a few characteristics that are reminiscent of early Prince. He prides himself on taking his life experiences and channeling them into lyrics that his listeners can identify with." - Pigeons and Planes
"One of the fiercest comeback singles of the year." - Neon Gold
