Spanning a range of stunning collaborations and solo productions, Expensive Sounds For Nice People is a 16-track body of work of dance-pop perfection. Featuring a number of previous hit releases that include the platinum-selling single “Get What You Give,” “Too Late,” “The Life,” “Only One” with Karen Harding, “Mine” with Sophie Simmons, “Happy Hour” ft. Kiiara, and “Love Me,” the album is a true testament to Cartal’s ability to craft an astonishing array of catchy, upbeat, and deep soundscapes.
“My fourth album Expensive Sounds For Nice People is part of the second musical chapter in my life. My first two albums were the first chapter of my musical career: a scrappier, undeveloped, experimental phase where a lot of the ideas didn’t quite get executed how I would want from lack of skill or know-how. I’m still fond of that time and those releases but was ultimately frustrated that I couldn’t make what I wanted come to life exactly how I heard it in my head. The other big problem from that era was consistency, and basically, that’s what I’ve become obsessed with. Growing up arguably through one of the worst eras of one-hit-wonders in musical history, I remember constantly being disappointed when I bought an album and there was only one good song. I hated that. And I think remembering that has guided me into this second chapter of my life. Where I’ve just tried to grind it out daily at the studio and work on my skills, and trying to become more consistent. I’m more into the ‘Jiro Dreams of Sushi’ chef approach nowadays, where I just try to log hours every day to refine my craft. Not too concerned with the result from that specific day but knowing that if I stack those hours I will in fact improve. I want every song to be 100% something I’m proud of, or it’s not coming out.”Felix Cartal
