Nils Bloch’s beautifully intimate new single “The Park” is a must-listen

“The Park” is Danish singer-songwriter Nils Bloch’s 3rd single. The song signals the release of an EP later this year and follows up debut singles “The Marsh” and “Iolanda”.

“The Park” is a hauntingly beautiful indie-folk tune in the vein of fellow Scandinavian artists like Agnes Obel, Lykke Li and José González. It´s so easy to be trapped by such a hypnotic production as this one. The guitar, cellos, and distant choir haunting the background are just sublime and so elegantly executed.

Bloch says of “The Park”:

“I wrote ‘The Park’ for a friend I lived with in Berlin. We lived close to a huge park on the outskirts of the city. When life became overwhelming for her, she would go there in the middle of the night to gather strength. Although a park at night is probably not the safest place, I understood that this was her safe space. Alone among the trees. I would play her the song, and I sense that, like the actual park, it has provided her with some kind of refuge from time to time, which makes me endlessly proud.”
