A duo of this capacity is not something you
just come by every now and then. What this duo brings is a different angle
to electronica and pop music as we know it. While the sound is mainstream it
is still hard to categorize their music, as Vivid Suspense constantly seek
to push the boundaries of both modern pop and rock. Lyrically they always
try to attack melancholy with a mysterious and not always obvious sense
The Danish duo has finished their forthcoming début album Beside
Myself, which will see its release in the beginning of 2006. The album
offers the listener a fresh, varying, and new experience in sound. Lyrically
the album deals with subjects as love, frustration, loss, and self-perception.
This can of course sound mundane but it never is when served by Vivid Suspense.
(Yaz in the US) cult classic Winter Kills is the only cover
track featured on the album. Originally it was made for the 2001 US Tribute
to Yazoo compilation Nobody's Diary but the sound fit nicely
into the palette of songs presented on the album. Beside Myself is produced by Vivid Suspense and Brian Belloni and mastered by Thomas
Wind (sometimes credited as Flouvio), who also is the former musical partner
of remix wizard Funkstar
Vivid Suspense have just finished making a video for their single Emancipation.
The video features the two Danish film stars Dejan Cukic (Nikolaj and Julie,
In China They Eat Dogs) and Baard Owe (At the Faber, The Kingdom, The Kingdom II, Europa).
The video was directed by film director Sohail A. Hassan (Joystick Nation)
and takes place in a hospital. The video is unlike many of the videos we see today, so
be prepared for something quite different… something that may even shake you to the bone.
Now, it is time for the world to get rocked in a different way.
