‘Embrace the chaos. You’ll feel better for it.’

The musical journey of Gotherburg’s Joel Wästberg, sir Was shows himself as a master of balance, building perfectly weighted, beautifully emotive, atmospheric tracks that eschew genre classification.
Sometimes odd and always unpredictable there’s an endearing crate-dug aesthetic at play here too, as sir Was references a massively eclectic listening palette, merging graceful melodies and deep beats with his unique production style, organic instrumentation, synthetic sounds and head-bobbing beats.
