In My Room proudly presents ‘Fixion’,
the fourth full-length offering from
Anders Trentemøller.
With ‘Fixion’, Anders has crafted a logical
successor to 2013’s ‘Lost’ - a record
that in many ways managed to truly
capture the visceral live experience of
Trentemøller as a full-band. In much the
same manner that ‘Lost’ built on from the
somber cinematic classic that was ‘Into
The Great Wide Yonder’, ‘Fixion’ has
embraced the Danish artist’s trademark
melancholy and matured it into something
uniquely atmospheric and darkly
romantic.
Rather than attempting to completely
reinvent himself, Anders has used his latest
outing as an opportunity to highlight
certain granular aspects of his signature
sound and refine them into a much more
organic - and at times perhaps more
song-driven body of work. It’s a record
that on first listen may seem less detailed
but, as you’ll know by now, with Trentemøller,
one should never be fooled by
initial impressions. It’s the kind of record
that will over time repeatedly unlock
new intricacies and offer the listener
an opportunity to understand the work
differently upon each listen.
The album is still notably driven by the
producer and multi-artist’s passion for experimentation
and effortlessly succeeds
in transcending a swathe of influences
and unassuming genres-
yet all the while
holding true to Trentemøller’s unique,
and sometimes challenging vernacular.
From the cascading minimalist synthscapes
to driving electropunk, each and
every track on ‘Fixion’ is bound together
with a contemplative melodic complexity.
‘Fixion’ is awash with New Romantic
strings, downplayed pop sensibilities
and percussion so cold that it might
have been recorded on a reel-to-reel in a
dilapidated jet hanger. With its coldwave
synths and hypnotic, driving bass
hooks, the record paints a picture of both
reflective night drives through ‘Blade
Runner’-esque metropolises and introspective,
isolated Scandinavian evenings
spent pondering life itself - which makes
a lot of sense, given Anders crafted the
record in Copenhagen and New York,
after a year spent relentless gigging in
the US and Europe.
Whilst Trentemøller may have evolved
into a complete band for touring purposes,
the entirety of the music is still composed
and produced by Anders. It’s only
actually after the album is written and recorded
that his sonic vision is reimagined
and then collaboratively transformed,
together with a host of musical accomplices,
to create what has now become
his renowned concert experience.
