Thoughtfulness and existentialism characterize this album from Troels Abrahamsen whom with EXEC has returned to the basics of songwriting. 'Going Under' is about the reassurance of knowing where you end up. In a constant search for the good and true life, one will be hit by defeat more often than not. By recognizing that you will most likely end in the same place no matter how you live your life, you are freed from this search - at least for a while.
The forthcoming album has been recorded with the producer Mikkel Bolding. Together they have spent hours, days and weeks looking for the perfect place to record every song to capture the right sonic moments. The result is a captivating, intense and diverse album, a pleasure for audiophiles.
EXEC is analogue music. Troels has worked hard to capture and record the right takes of each sound. This has resulted in a highly dynamic album. Though without religious overtones, the music is inspired by the Nordic psalm tradition with its particular harmonies and structures. Troels’ vocal work is exemplary and reaches new emotional highs with great range in dynamics and timbre.
