If Sweden’s soul music scene were a volcano, it would be erupting a fountain of golden female soul singers. However, Male soul singers remain a buried treasure rarely unearthed.
Emerging into the much needed male musicsphere is Pash, a Swedish-Persian artist from Gothenburg. In his new single Edil, produced by DJ More10 (Tyte, Besa Tafari) he serves an emotional and lush R&B single.
In the past couple of years, Swedish hip-hop has attracted a new generation of young men to find their voice in its energetic pulse, making Pash’s alternative balance of R&B with affectionate harmonies so stimulating. And thankfully no rap interlude to disturb the flow!
The excellent cinematic video (see above) directed by Filip Snabb eloquently captures the song’s essence, adding visual drama and graceful pacing.
Edil hears Pash reach out to the dejected, down-and-out, and desperate. He offers hope and solutions throughout the gorgeous, short but sweet, 2-minute piece.
“We all got books we partly wrote, I know it hurts
But know the ink that is within could be reversed”
“I’m thinking most of us have a shot to try breaking generational trauma and what we don’t like about ourselves and our story. “We all own a past but, our past doesn’t have to own us.”
Written by Pash, Edil is the culmination of the past ten years where he has been honing his skills as a church singer, songwriter, and performer.
Edil is the first track from his debut project arriving in late 2022.
