Trentemøller Pushes Boundaries On His New Release 'Obverse'

Sep 27, 2019

Danish electronic artist Anders Trentemøller is back with his fifth studio album 'Obverse.' The music is dark and ambient and this time features vocal contributions from Slowdive's Rachel Goswell and Warpaint's Jenny Lee Lindberg, among others.

The music is also quite visual. Trentemøller is not new to the idea of pairing visuals with his music, but for this album he decided to take on the work himself. "I often thought that the visual side was sometimes stealing the focus from the music...so I really wanted something that was quite simple," he told WUNC Morning Edition Host Eric Hodge.

Check out the video for 'Sleeper,' which Trentemøller says he shot on his bike with his iPhone.
