Swedish artist Kasbo has emerged from a creative hiatus with a triumphant return, gifting his fans a captivating new single titled ‘The Way You Had Me.’ This release marks Kasbo’s first single in three years and ushers in a new chapter for the multi-talented artist. Released under ODESZA’s esteemed Foreign Family Collective, the single is a testament to Kasbo’s evolution and growth as a musician.
‘The Way You Had Me’ is a sonic journey that draws listeners into Kasbo’s mesmerizing soundscape. The track features a punchy and minimal groove in the background which allows his signature melodic elements and delicate guitar licks to take center stage, creating an atmosphere that resonates with emotions and captures the essence of his unique production style. ‘The Way You Had Me’ is an exciting prelude for what is to come and is a solid promise for the direction Kasbo will be taking for his future releases and return to the electronic dance scene.
Reflecting on the inspiration behind the track, Kasbo shares:
“‘The Way You Had Me’ marked a major turning point for me creatively. I’d been struggling for months, if not years, to rediscover my place in the new and quickly changing electronic music landscape. This song felt like the beginning of me realizing that direction – covering new ground while still creating something that felt true to myself. The song itself is about a past relationship and coming to terms with a partner moving on. That period when you’re wondering if they’re just distracting themselves or if they’ve truly moved on, and questioning how what you had could be real if it could be forgotten so quickly… I’m so happy to finally be releasing music again and can’t wait to continue sharing this new era of inspiration with everyone.”
Later this summer, Kasbo will be direct support for Jai Wolf’s ‘Blue Babu’ tour, which will see him performing at iconic American venues such as the Brooklyn Mirage, Mission Ballroom, Echostage, The Greek Theatre, and more. Check out the full tour dates below.
