Mathias Hammerstrøm – “But I Don’t Mind”


The serene, spacious “But I Don’t Mind” is a new track from Mathias Hammerstrøm, a singer and electronic composer from Denmark. Stylistically reminiscent of James Blake’s most contemplative efforts, the atmospheric track stirs the soul, with a touching and vulnerable vocal lead providing a light over the fog of reverbed, paced percussion, nocturnal bass ruminations, and lush synths. “But I Don’t Mind” comes via Hammerstrøm’s forthcoming EP, There Is a Light Within Yourself, out on May 27th. “I wanted to write an EP about the aftermath of loss, but I also wanted it to be more like a soothing experience than a sad one,” Hammerstrøm says. “Personally, making the music on this EP has been like a therapeutic experience. I hope it can help someone believe in themselves, to not give up and to not feel alone.”
