‘A unique blend of static noise, cutesy synths and low-fi guitars condensed to the world of the internet’  Earmilk

 

Lemaitre’s ‘1749’ EP is out today via Astralwerks/Virgin EMI with the duo making stops in Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris and London in February to coincide with the release (tickets at www.lemaitremusic.com.)They are also making their Coachella Festival performance debut this April.

 

The first single from the EP ‘Closer’ was the band’s fastest growing track to date, with over 9 million streams and counting and synth heavy follow up ‘Stepping Stone’ made it to number 1 on the Hype Machine after premiering on Stereogum. ‘1749’ brims with pop gems sung by Ulrik Denizou Lund. ‘Not Too Late’ and ‘Day Two’ both have a bright ’70s-pop feel even as Lund and Ketil Jansen’s tones and beats live definitively in the post-EDM present. ‘1749′ is not only the title of the duo’s forthcoming EP; it’s also the address of their Los Angeles home and studio. The band says, “1749 is our home address and the title of our EP, but it’s more than that.1749 represents the journey we’ve made and the process of creating music in our home away from home. We live with our video director, manager and our friend Sebastian “Coucheron,” who also makes music. We all moved together from Norway to chase the dream of making music and living in LA. It’s kind of like the TV-show Entourage except without all the money, ladies, and fancy parties.”

 

Lemaitre are Norway’s latest entry into the smooth, melodic electronic tradition of artists who temper their electronic grooves with adept pop songwriting. “We want to walk the line,” explains Ulrik Denizou Lund, who along with Ketil Jansen is Lemaitre, “and do everything from a loop-based song to straight pop or rock songs that have more structure.” Lemaitre have more than a million followers on SoundCloud, and the duo’s 2012 EP, ‘Relativity 2,’ shot to No. 1 on the iTunes Electronic chart in the U.S. and Canada. They number among their fans some of dance music’s biggest artists — Porter Robinson, Madeon, Kygo, and Martin Solveig to name a few. Robinson also took them on tour last summer.
