Josef Salvat burst onto the international music scene in 2014 with the dark, brooding electropop of ‘Hustler’. He went on to release the critically acclaimed debut album Night Swim while quietly becoming an underground hero as a featured vocalist on tracks with the likes Gryffin and Tourist among others.
He has sold out multiple tours in the UK and Europe where he also scored a #1 airplay record with ‘Open Season’, a Gold record with ‘Diamonds’ and a gold album with Night Swim in France before releasing his 2019 album modern anxiety, exec produced by long-time collaborator Rich Cooper (Mystery Jets, Tom Odell), mixed by Geoff Swan (Ed Sheeran, Grimes, Years & Years, Haim), assisted by Niko Battistini (Charli XCX), it was bursting with vitality, despair, fresh perspectives and raw honesty – working as a travelogue through the tempestuous love-life which traced his twenties.
Earlier this year, Josef also shared The Close/ Le Réveil, an incredibly intimate EP, written and recorded at home during 2020’s lockdown.
His huge new single ‘I’m Sorry’ and the accompanying official video, are out now via independent label Leafy Outlook. Armed with a newfound sense of independence after relocating to Paris and taking back creative control, ‘I’m Sorry’ is a fast-paced bop banger on learning to let go that’s been 8 years in the making, after being first written in 2013.
