- An Interview with Trentemøller Jammerzine Exclusive 33:12
Danish indie/electronic music Trentemøller may be one of the most diverse people in the music industry. With a career spanning over two decades and literally hundreds of credits cross-hopping between albums of many different genres as well as scoring and production work, to say hee is established at this point would be an understatement.
And now we get the next evolution of his revolution in the form of his new album titled ‘Obverse’, which drops today (September 27, 2019). Featuring guest spots by such as Rachel Goswell, Lina Tullgrin, Lisbet Fritze, and Jennylee, ‘Obverse’ is an electronic dreamscape in which each track has its own signature stamp within the collection yet everything seems to fall into place further cementing Trentemøller’s place as a music legend.
And today we get to speak with that legend and get his incite on the music industry as a whole as well as ‘Obverse’ and the magic contained within.
About Trentemøller & ‘Obverse’
Trentemøller already shared gorgeous videos for singles “In The Garden” (ft. Lina Tullgren) and “Sleeper,” in addition to a short film he wrote & recorded music for with Lisbet Fritze, featuring Sean Penn and Helena Christensen. “Try A Little” (ft. jennylee of Warpaint) came out 8/30.
He has always worked with strong female singers, including Savages’ Jehnny Beth, Low’s Mimi Parker, Blonde Redhead’s Kazu Makino, and Marie Fisker. This new album features the voices of Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell, Warpaint’s Jenny Lee Lindberg (jennylee) and Lisbet Fritze, as well. With shoegaze, dream pop, synth-based soundscape enriched by German Kosmische/Motorik experimentalist spirit, Obverse explores complementary contrasts inherent in the album title and Nordic environment he calls home.
