Discrete (August Ramberg) is an electro-pop connoisseur and multi-talented artist/producer from Stockholm, Sweden. Not too long ago, he collaborated with the multi-platinum Swedish songwriter, Alex Shield, who recently launched his own project under the name of KELLYKKE.
Discrete & KELLYKKE – “Run Away” single
“KELLYKKE and I met for the first time last summer, and we’ve been working on a lot of songs together since. He came up with an idea for a song using a guitar and his vocals, and before we knew it RUN AWAY was born. We ended up experimenting until we finally found a middle ground that fitted both of our sounds. I feel humbled that he wanted to release his first single as KELLYKKE with me.” – Discrete stated
‘Run Away’ finds Discrete and KELLYKKE exploring urges for self-discovery and new beginnings. The likable tune contains a dreamy narrative, ear-welcoming vocals, and rich harmonies. Also, the song possesses rhythmic instrumentation scented with a warm electro-pop aroma with breezy tropical elements. Furthermore, “Run Away” serves as a wonderful presentation to what listeners can hear on Discrete’s debut EP, entitled, EXPLORE.
“It was in mid-2019 when the idea of an EP came to mind. I wanted to build and create something that felt like me. Something that had diversity, instead of releasing five songs that sound similar. EXPLORE became my own way of exploring different genres while challenging myself as an artist, songwriter, and producer. I’m really excited about the final result.” – Discrete
The five-track project focuses on themes such as relationships, reflections, and bettering one’s self. Also, it is filled with uplifting, splash-filled melodies that don’t confine to one genre. Standout tracks include “Stupid Things“, “Typo“, and “Run Away”.
“I wanna run away. I wanna turn the page to some other place.”
Having over 300 million streams to his name, KELLYKKE has been involved in ground-breaking projects. Including co-writing Swedish P3 Radio Pop Song of the year, and several songs on Molly Sandén’s Swedish Grammy’s Award-winning full-length, which won in three categories.
