From HOLLAND •
Last night Calundé celebrated his debut 'The Unconditional Ones' with a sold out listening session in De Melkweg, Amsterdam. As of today, the album is out everywhere. Nine tracks full of doubt and ingenuity soul from the 21-year-old artist from Tilburg that exhibits his versatile talent.
For example, Calundé is the composer, lyricist, guitarist and producer of the record. The accompanying artwork was created by the celebrated Merijn Hos.
In terms of content, 'The Unconditional Ones' is a clear extension of Calundé himself, in which he treats the themes in a modest way, as he explains himself: "On the record I ask a lot of questions about change and growth. Self-reflection has always been a high priority for me. Making this project may have also helped me in some way to be more confident."
Previous singles like 'Feathers', 'Compromise' and 'Found Without Searching' helped building profile for the young artists. Calundé was selected for Fresh Finds, he received airplay on stations such as KCRW, 3FM and Sublime and platforms like Indie Shuffle and 3voor12 wrote about his music.
'The Unconditional Ones' is out now on Nine And A Half and can be heard everywhere.
