Erik Hassle - Pathetic

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
SOHN, Nick Ruth
Album:
Somebody's Party EP

Booth newcomer Erik Hassle‘s mother told him not to let anyone play him for a fool, and he always followed her advice… until recently. On a newly-released single off his latest EP, the Swedish singer-songwriter admits that a new woman in his life has him acting just a little bit Pathetic. His emotional neediness may be embarrassing, but his vocal abilities are anything but; laced with sensual ad-libs and quavering falsetto, his striking performance draws clear inspiration from electro-funk great Prince. SOHN (whose Artifice hit the Booth earlier this year) and Nick Ruth team up to create the jam’s addictive instrumental backdrop. For Pathetic and much more, check out Hassle’s Everybody’s Party EP, out now.

Update: We have added visuals for Erik Hassle’s Pathetic single.
