Seattle indie-rocker Noah Gundersen and Los Angeles songwriter Phoebe Bridgers have released a video/track collaboration for their respective singles “The Sound”, off Gundersen’s latest album White Noise, and “Killer”, from Bridgers‘ acclaimed 2017 debut album, Stranger In The Alps (Dead Oceans). The stripped down video and track were recorded at Seattle’s Studio X and features the help of Abby Gundersen on piano and vocals.

NPR‘s Stephen Thompson said of the two songs, “Bridgers’ ‘Killer’ stuns in any setting, and Gundersen’s ‘The Sound’ is a revelation in their collective hands. Performed back to back, the two songs sound hauntingly beautiful.”

“I’m just a big fan of her work. I listened to her record obsessively and I wanted to make something with her,” explains Gundersen. “This was recorded on our last day of tour together, when we all had a few spare hours in the afternoon.”
“I’ve been a fanatic of Noah since I was a teenager. He changed the way I write music, made me more comfortable with being honest in my songs,” Bridgers reflects. “Getting to sing with him was like getting pulled onstage by your favorite band during a show.”
