Interview With Torgny
LUCID AND GLITCHY SCANDINAVIAN FILMSCAPES
This week experimental poptronica artist Torgny released the follow-up to his previously released Oslo, 31. August EP – the esteemed musical contribution to the Cannes Film Festival-debuted film of the same name. His new EP celebrates songs from the award-winning music video trilogy directed by Emil Trier and the accompanying videos document the lives of young people in contemporary Scandinavia – kids in a rural town in their vintage Volvos (The Only Game), privileged suburban girls celebrating their graduation (Big Day) and Sami kids on their snow-scooters (I Came Here).
With the vocal talents of Norwegian artist Maria Due featuring on all tracks the EP is given a dynamic and intriguing presence with big, brooding synths and lucid melodies. Each original track is supported by an exclusive remix, carefully selected to explore the original songs in new dimensions. If you click here then a free download of Big Day as remixed by Plant Plants (see their intraview from last year here) will appear in your ears. The aforementioned video is below.
