VIDEO PREMIERE: RA – Prism (Trentemøller remix)

in Blog/New Music by
RA

Earlier this month we had the pleasure to premiere RA ‘Prism (Trentemøller remix)’ from their latest EP ‘Remixes’. Since then things have been moving fast. RA has been named one of the most relevant bands in 2015 by Nordic by Nature and Hype Machine are also on to them. Well, not to mention they now have a video out for RA ‘Prism (Trentemøller remix)’ and here it is:

RA – Prism (Trentemøller Remix) (Video Edit) from Adrian Recordings on Vimeo.

AUDIO PREMIERE: RA – ‘PRISM’ (TRENTEMØLLER REMIX)

in Blog/New Music by
RA

Malmö-based RA is yet further proof that Copenhagen is not the only Scandinavian city that can turn out that sought-after ‘nordic noir’ punk. The band, who recently played at Roskilde Festival and Copenhagen Psych Fest, formed in 2012. Their music is dark, driven by guitar and bass  and likened to acts like Brian Jonestown Massacre. Ra has released both and 10″ and a 7″ records and will be releasing their debut album in mid 2015.

RA’s latest release is entitled “Remixes” and features, appropriately enough, remixes from Trentemøller, Noe Spagato, Myth and Bam Spacey. It was released on vinyl on the first of  December (it will be released on digital the 29th of December). The first single is called “Prism (Trentemøller remix)” .

LIVE REVIEW: Trentemøller, Store Vega, 22.11.2013

in Live Reviews by

Whatever the opposite of a cult of personality is, that’s what Anders Trentemøller is. Seeing him lined up with his band in a perfect row, it is not immediately apparent that the man behind the keyboards is at the helm of this dark, almost ambient rock.

It’s not until 40 minutes into the set when Trentemøller’s bandmates have fallen away and he is left alone on stage with his synths and a glockenspiel to play “Miss You” that it’s really clear who is at the center of the project creatively and not just physically.

In fact, Marie Fisker, who provides all of the lead vocals for the evening (she also sings the vocal on “Candy Tongue” on Lost) as well as playing guitar, could easily be mistaken for the band’s frontwoman. She spends more time playing to the crowd than Trentemøller himself, who only occasionally stalks out from around his keyboards to contort his wiry frame.

But Trentemøller’s set is much more about atmosphere than rock star performances. There is something restrained in the entire band’s performance. The energy is evident, but everyone keeps him and herself relatively confined to their respective spaces, though maybe that’s because there’s just too much gear to worry about knocking over. Trentemøller himself attacks his synths as though he’s longing for a more mobile instrument to allow him to get some of that energy out.

Which may sound surprising if what you were expecting was the delicate, introspective beauty of Lost. When some songs are three guitars deep, it’s inevitable that those instruments will overtake the nuance of some of the composition, but no one seems disappointed. Judging by the vibe in the room, people are here to dance in their own similarly restrained ways. They’re ready to accept loud guitars and glockenspiels in equal turn. They are pleased with their un-rock rockstar.

SESSION: First Hate

in Sessions by

First Hate are a synth-pop duo from Copenhagen consisting of Anton Falck Gansted (Vocals/Keys) and Joakim Norgaard (Keys/Vocals). The duo combine lo-fi synthetically programmed melodies and drum beats fused with live keyboard recordings, Gansted’s deep reverb drained vocals are at the forefront of the bands sound. In September 2014, the band released their self titled debut EP First Hate and have recently toured with Danish producer Trentemøller on the eastern European leg of his Lost tour.

They visited us at Black Tornado studios in Copenhagen on a cold winters day to give us a peak into their world, giving us a taste of their “snake rhythm” genre leading us through “Girls In The Club” and “Strange Weather” – both from their self-titled debut EP. An additional song will be added to the session in the coming month, new single “Time” is scheduled for release towards the end of March, check back then!

Until then, here’s “Girls In The Club” and “Strange Weather”:

INTRODUCING: First Hate

in Blog by

First Hate are a Copenhagen based synth-pop duo who formed in the early part of 2013. Although in previous interviews they’ve tried to deny it their sound is leaning heavily on 80’s gloom synth with hints of early 90’s electronica creeping through. Since their debut performance at Henry’s Dream in July 2013 the guys have played a handful of festivals including Distortion, Trailerpark Festival, an AUDIO:VISUAL set at CPH:DOX and have just been hand picked to support Trentemøller on his east European tour.

The band release their debut EP First Hate today (Friday 12th September) after an offer from Ben Cook (Fucked Up/Youth Club) to help distribute the EP in North America, the 10″ is in limited supply with only 250 copies pressed. Grab one while you can.
