Posh Isolation Goes the Avant-Pop Route With New Khalil Album


In today’s #selftitledpremiere, When Saints Go Machine frontman Nikolaj Vonsild ventures even further out into the void with Khalil, a new experimental pop/R&B trio with guitarist/producer Simon Formann (Lower, Age Coin, Yen Towers) and Villads Klint (a.k.a. Minais B). Picture Arca colliding with ANOHNI—lots of vibrato vibes, crystalline keys, and bit-crushed beats—and you’re about halfway there.

Here’s what Vonsild had to say about “Herat”, followed by a few other selections from The Water We Drink, which passes through the Posh Isolation pipeline on August 25th….

“Herat” is a soothing meditative repetition of waking up after dreaming about something lost. Not a nightmare, just facts. There is a perfect contrast in this track, that we always search for and it’s named after my mother Herat who is the coolest person I have ever met.
