Klyne today premiere their soulful, pulsating new single “Water Flow”, out now via Big Beat Records/Because Music. The track was one of the first songs the duo – 22 year old producer Ferdous Dehzad and singer Nick Klein – made together after the childhood friends reconnected at the dawn of their twenties and bonded over their love of soul and electronic music. Written, recorded, produced and mixed in Dehzad’s childhood bedroom, Klein ducked out of his then-day job at Dominos pizza to join his partner in laying down vocals in a makeshift booth constructed from a pair of old mattresses.
“Water Flow was so fun to do,” explains Dehzad. “The sound of the Rhodes piano chords throughout the whole song is from an old keyboard i’ve had since i was a little kid. It sounds so shallow and muffled, but I think it fits into the track perfectly. We’ve been playing this song since the beginning of our live shows, and we’re super happy to finally be able to share it.”

Klyne first caught everybody’s attention with their critically acclaimed debut ‘Paralyzed’ EP for Aesop, as well as their maiden remix, a rework of Disclosure’s Omen feat. Sam Smith. “Water Flow” is their follow up to the acclaimed “Don’t Stop”, their Big Beat/Because Music debut released earlier this year; its stunning video was directed by acclaimed choreographer and film maker Holly Blakey (Florence and the Machine, Jungle, Coldplay, Young Fathers) and is nominated for a UK Music Video Award. The duo supported Years & Years and label mate Christine and the Queens on tour this year over in the UK. The band are eyeing a US live debut in New York before the Holidays and will be planning their inaugural trip to SXSW this March.
