Gaspar Narby shares his stirring new single, ‘Sleepless’ featuring LEES on September 18th, 2020.
Up and coming producer Gaspar Narby teams up with LEES in his new single, Sleepless, taken from his Collab EP, due out later in the year.
Earning himself respectable stripes for his unique take on downtempo electronica, the new single is another stellar example of the young producer’s ability to create addictive pop tunes.
Led by delicate trap production elements with ethereal textures and dreamlike melodies, the song was written by Gaspar and LEES with sleepless nights over fleeting love in mind, and the stirring single is both downhearted and uplifting, as all good love songs should be.
Gaspar explains, “Sleepless, the EP’s first single, is the third song I write with LEES. She’s one of my closest friends and such a gifted writer; she just knows how to tell vivid stories through catchy melodies. This song is about the beautiful memories that haunt you, the ones you’d like to forget but never want to let go. It’s an uplifting sad song, basically!”
Discussing the Collab EP in further detail, he continues, “Writing my last EP, Transatlantic, was a solitary and introspective process, and I quickly missed the inspiration that collaboration can offer. So I started what became Collab EP. Writing music with someone is one of the purest form of connection I’ve ever felt. The aim was to create a platform for my guests to share their stories, their visions, while keeping a cohesive frame. And I’m so pleased with the balance we stroke! I think each song is a perfect mix of my guests’ world and mine.”
The Collab EP is out on December 11th 2020.
