Danish art-pop trio WhoMadeWho has announced they will be teaming up with Kompakt for a new mini-LP release entitled Knee Deep.
The eight-track LP will be available for purchase in mid-April, along with a smattering of European dates. Kompakt have described their new direction as one less filled with pop but a more sombre route as they expand: "Knee Deep reflects the band’s love for electronic music in conjunction with 60’s inspired psychedelic vocal productions."
WhoMadeWho have also been influenced by a number of epic events in the last twelve months which have also contributed to the nature of the record. Including having lost a childhood home to fire, marriage issues and last but not least record label disputes. A way more personal record than anything they’ve ever done.
We’ve already been served up a slice of Tomas Høffding’s side project Bon Homme (listen to his radio session with EB), but it’s been a while since WhoMadeWho released a long-player, 2009 to be exact with The Plot.
The first single will be "Every Minute Alone” and there will be remixes coming from Michael Mayer, Tomboy, Spleen United and Renaissance Man.
