Be Exactly Who You Are...
After his breakout alt-pop EPs Faded. Dream. (2017), Destiny (2019) and his debut album Armlock (2020), School of X out with an ambitious, timeless indie-pop sound on his new album Dancing Through The Void.
Dancing Through The Void is a message to have self-confidence—and Rasmus Littauer is walking the walk.
In a year of noise and interruption, Littauer—who has spent most of the past decade touring and working with artists such as Liss, Clairo, Deb Never and MØ as well as on his own music—has been affected more than most. Still, the past year’s global interruptions are the least significant of his recent life changes.
“This year I became a father. It makes my thoughts go around and around about my own childhood and how I was raised. You notice a lot of things you want to do differently than your parents, and maybe some things you want to do the same. I also think a lot about the world I’m putting my child into. He will encounter the whole spectrum of emotions and experiences, and it’ll be fun and hard. At times he will be dancing through the void and at times he will be in the void, and so on.”
Dancing Through The Void features Clairo collaborator Kim Tee on “Heart Turned Cold” and Danish band Liss on “Bag of Bones”. Every next song on the album oozes with the confidence and a new spin on his timeless songwriting.
