It’s been a year since Danish singer songwriter and producer Goss released acclaimed edbut EP Healthcare. How do you kick off a fresh round of music and touring when you’re as gifted as this captivating artist? By dropping a song like “These Days. I Don’t Know”, of course! The artist, who’s a renowned trailblazer in Denmark’s rising alt-pop scene, melds balmy pop and sultry R&B on the eclectic and intricate song. His waxy smooth voice glides soulfully over an ever shifting and morphing tapestry of ornate electronic elements and complex drum-work. Goss has also announced his biggest run of European tour dates yet, supporting SOHN on five shows in five countries followed by three major Danish shows. Stream/download his new single, here.

Goss’ debut EP, Healthcare, is out now, and its songs take us on a sensuous swooning journey. Out of the five tracks on the Danish singer songwriter and producer’s first EP arises fresh new track Ijotwiyda, another strongly evocative fusion of R&B soul, funk, and electronica reminiscent of Jai Paul with some of the more tender melting late night jazz strings of Tom Misch and the textured gospel dub of James Blake. Ijotwiyda could very well be the most romantic song off of Healthcare. It’s a gentler suitor, unlike its more twisted, knotted brethren on the EP. You can stream Healthcare in full on Soundcloud. Purchase the EP from major outlets, here.

Enigmatic Danish songwriter and producer Goss continues to dazzle and entrance with twisted vocal samples and vibrant stabbing synths on sleek new single Soo Bad. Soo Bad is, well, to put it simply, so good. Goss has delivered another genre melding eruption of R&B, funk, alt pop, and electronica reminiscent of Ben Khan and Jai Paul. Liss’ Vera lends co-production talent to the swiveling, coiling spectacular, too. Soo Bad comes from Goss’ Healthcare EP, out April 28th. Snag Soo Bad, here, as we await Healthcare with much earnest zeal.

Danish songwriter and producer Goss continues to prove himself a fascinating artist to watch with a golden bristling new single named Time. He presents us with a swooning recipe as he mixes R&B, funk, and electronica with much clever dexterity. Time is the sort of slick twisting electronica that appeals to fans of Ben Khan, Jai Paul, and TENDER, with the added textured future resplendence of Mura Masa. Despite our praise of Goss’ prior tracks, Time serves as his first official single. Stream or purchase from additional outlets, here.

Goss blew me away with his debut, “I Want To Know?????”, earlier this summer. The enigmatic Danish newcomer proves that track wasn’t a chance occurrence with a ravishing second song, Waterfall. It doesn’t get more slickly rapturous than this crisp fluttering, sonic rich number, an amorphous shifting pool of delectable alt R&B and kaleidoscopic electropop. Off kilter house beats, ruffled guitar riffs, and jabbing synths join in for a sonic high that leaves me buzzing long afterwards.

The name of Goss’ debut carries an emphatic five question marks. Perhaps those question marks represents the sheer sonic strength of the Danish newcomer’s R&B pop song in the same way that dollar signs or stars represent ratings and quality for restaurants or other objects. In other words,  I Want To Know????? gets a five out of five. It’s a spectacular introduction to Goss, a florid and complex home run from a musician who’s collaborated with many other artists from Denmark in the past, even contributing to MØ’s eagerly anticipated sophomore album. I Want To Know????? quivers and oscillates, wobbles and cascades, a dazzling patchwork of sound topped off with creamy smooth vocals. From Ben Khan like wooziness to hints of summer tropical Jack U vibes to Son Lux dynamics, this one seems to have it all. Each listen only reveals more, and trust me, you’ll want to listen more, and a lot more after that. Goss co-produced the stunning track alongside Vera, who produced previously featured Soleima track, Wasted. The Danes seem to be out in full force lately.
