Aesthetically speaking Armlock might feel very contemporary on first listen, however as one listens closely layers of modern music history reveals themselves. “I always loved bands like Slowdive, Spiritualized, and Primal Scream. At the same time I have a soft spot for slowly paced pop songs like those of Sade and Whitney Houston for example. 90’s hip hop beats are also very close to my heart. These were all sources of inspiration to me on this record, and while making it I rediscovered a ton of great albums and songs. That way Armlock to me is also the wonderful feeling of being close to home and to what’s shaped me musically and personally.”

Armlock is recorded in both Denmark and New York City. And it was after a night out in New York that the record’s title revealed itself to Rasmus:

“The title of the album is Armlock. I came up with the title while driving in a taxi in NYC at 4am in the morning arm in arm with one of my best friends. We were pretty ecstatic about being together in this city at that moment. Literally Armlock of course also has a negative meaning. And this duality means a lot to me because one of my only real struggles is that I’m always trying to break out of what I’m doing. I’m simply scared of being stuck and of being held down by the world around me. It’s not just in music I feel like this - the impermanence of my entire existence is really a lot on my mind“
