Copenhagen’s Anders Trentemøller has long been respected as a
creator of extraordinarily memorable melodies and lush soundscapes,
but for the last decade he’s been getting long overdue praise for being
a producer with few rivals as well.

While many artists follow a pattern of invention and reinvention,
Anders’ arc has been a series of points along the same curve, playing
the long game, with each release representing the next chapter in a
constantly evolving series. Contrasts and paradoxes are often explored,
ultimately acknowledged in the title of his last album, ‘Obverse’. Other
themes may revolve around reminiscence and remembrance, while
eschewing nostalgia. His upcoming album release, ‘Memoria’, digs in
deeper, and honors the five canons of storytelling, which also include
inventio, dispositio, elocutio and pronuntiatio.

With Memoria, Trentemøller continues to work with familiar themes of
light and dark, turbulence and serenity, piercing chill and comforting
warmth, clearly inspired by the inherent antipodal elements of the
Nordic environment he calls home, but pushes deeper into this familiar
territory, while simultaneously investigating others. His longest album
yet, clocking in at 14 songs, it features somber, introspective pieces,
motorik, shoegaze, noise rock, as well as electronic pop. Once more
Memoria includes instrumental and vocal songs, and for the first time
Trentemøller also composed all the vocal melodies and lyrics on the
album which are solely performed by Lisbet Fritze.
