Lemaitre is the electronic duo of Ulrik Denizou Lund and Ketil Jansen of Oslo, Norway. Together, they ply a unique brand of maximalist, candy-coated electronic pop, as likely to resolve to a sing-along vocal hook as to a dance-floor shaking bass drop. But it’s not all fun and games, either. Lemaitre’s songs also explore moodier and more thoughtful territories, as this playlist, curated by Lemaitre’s Denizou Lund nicely illuminates.
Denizou Lund says, “[The playlist is] a few songs that are all time favorites with a few recent discoveries as well. It’s a mix of fun playful music like Superorganism and the more melancholic like the track by Radiohead and Mew. But mostly melancholic. I guess it’s that time of year. We also like making fun music beside more melancholic tunes. Our latest track ‘Big’ is bit of both. I must admit I had never given Radiohead a proper listen before I recently went through their discography, so I have been listening a lot to them lately. And ‘Weird Fishes/Arpeggi’ has got to be one of my favorites.”
