Inspired by sufi-music, mali-blues, Western low-fi pop and avant-garde, Danish-born KRISTIAN HARTING crafts his own auditory portrayals of life’s pitfalls and rebirths through tales that are coarse and sometimes bizarre and are all strikingly melodious, culminating in diverse electronic and acoustic trips.
KRISTIAN HARTING’s profoundly personal debut solo album, ‘Float‘, exorcises the demons he’s clashed in his recent past. With a very personal approach, the album’s title refers to the artist’s survival-strategy in a period of his life characterised by extreme personal, emotional and financial turmoil, so chaotic and exhausting that it nearly devastated him.
