Single out 8th December via Nevado

 “Klassen’s writing earned him early cred, but comparing his fledgling self-releases with the imaginative refinement of Repentance, you hear the distance from aspiration to inspiration.” – Steve Smith, Time Out New York

Jordan Klassen has made some serious headway in the past year, earning extensive radio play across North America with his previous single Go To Me and landing himself a deal with Nevado Music. His multi-layered folk-pop sound has garnered comparisons to bands such as Broken Bells and Passion Pit, with his focus always on his approach – fusing melody and poetry, to spark imagination and summon forgotten emotion.

Having already released a full-length debut album, Repentance, which received rave reviews for its atmospheric ambience, Jordan Klassen returns with his brand new single called Firing Squad and a cover of Jordan’s favourite HAIM song, Falling.

Firing Squad combines alt folksy somberness with haunting bursts of energy. It’s simplistic yet affective, with its combination of chimes, strings and echoing harmonized vocals that filter through the track creating a wistful and warm mood.

The emerging Canadian star also lends his vocals to a cover of HAIM’s song Falling that shudders with confidence and an air of familiarity. Klassen’s vocal style blends in beautifully upon a bed of shimmering percussions and various harmonies, creating a gorgeously dynamic sound.
