Naked Congress – ‘Falling’

We wrote about Naked Congress a few days back, with their track, ‘In My Room’. Now we’re privileged to share a second release, ‘Falling’, from the Swedish artist, who now bases himself in Germany.

Naked Congress, real name Magnus Bergentz, or Mazo to his friends, describes his project thus:

Naked Congress is whatever you want it to be. If you’re out driving in your car late at night – it might give you a melancholy feeling. If you’re stressed out – it might calm you down. If you’re in a bad mood – it might soothe you. Whatever happens when you listen to Naked Congress, good or bad, its alright.

This is what it’s all about – a naked meeting between you and me, through my music.
It doesn’t matter if you like, hate or love it – all that matters is – that it makes you feel something – something else than a comfortable numbness.

‘Falling’, as with our previously reviewed ‘In My Room’, is gentle electronica with Mazo’s voice hearkening back to the prog-rock stylings of early 10cc, Yes, and Procul Harum. At just under 3 and a half minutes long, ‘Falling’ isn’t a short track but we nonetheless wish it was a bit longer, we’re greedy for its sound and want to hear it over and over.



Find out more about Naked Congress online on Facebook, SoundCloud, and his official website. ‘Falling’ comes from Naked Congress’s EP, ‘Someone’, and is avaiable to stream on Spotify, and as a free download from Hypeddit.
