Obverse

Trentemøller


'Obverse' often feels like an instrumental album because it started life as one, the driving philosophy being what if the pressure of having to perform these songs live is removed entirely?. Granting yourself the freedom to chase down every idea a studio offers comes with privileges. What happens when you reverse a synth part mid-verse? Why not send an entire track through a faulty distortion pedal? Inspiration reveals itself in a variety of forms and, before long, a simple chord progression contorts into something entirely new.

Its a work method that yielded great results for the legendary German Kosmiche/Motorik experimentalists of the 1970s. Intentional or not, 'Obverse' embodies more than a little of that spirit without even a hint of pastiche. So it only makes sense that 'Obverse' would stray from its original roadmap. In due time, half of the nascent compositions featured singers, including Lina Tullgren, Lisbet Fritze, and jennylee, of Warpaint, another band deeply influenced by dream pop.

While 'Obverse' was born from a different work ethic than previous efforts, it also continues an arc that started in 2006. Each successive effort has represented a logical next step beyond the album before, and 'Obverse' absolutely picks up where Fixion left off.


'Obverse' føles ofte som et instrumentalalbum, fordi det begyndte sit liv sådan. Albummets tilblivelsesproces var formet af et princip om ikke at lade sig begrænse af, hvorvidt materialet ville være muligt at spille live. Trentemøller gav sig frihed til at udforske alle musikalske ideer uden begrænsninger. En arbejdsmetode som også kendetegnede de legendariske tyske Kosmiche/Motorik-eksperimentalister fra 1970'erne.

Selvom 'Obverse' er skabt ud fra en anderledes arbejdstilgang end hidtil, er albummet dog et naturligt resultat af den udvikling Trentemøller har gennemgået siden 2006. Hvert udspil siden da har taget et musikalsk skridt i ny retning, og 'Obverse' er også den naturlige efterfølger af Fixion fra 2016.
