Danish electro-pop artist Lucas Berner, AKA The Chairman, has returned with the announcement of his brand new single Dandelions out now via Danish Music Entertainment (DK) and available to buy on iTunes and stream on Spotify.
The audio of the single premiered on Gigslutz and is available to stream and embed via Soundcloud.
Combining elements of old school soul with electronic production, Dandelions is the follow up to his recent single release Animate, with the video for the track premiering on Clash Magazine‘s website. This was Lucas’ first foray into the UK music scene garnering instant acclaim from the likes of Amazing Radio. The Chairman’s deep, affecting soulful vocal range is what marks him out from his contemporaries, evoking memories of singers from the smooth-soul era of R&B music such as Al Green, Marvin Gaye and Bill Withers. Elevated further by the grand sweeping electronic production, as well as the addition of gospel-like layers of backing vocals, The Chairman has produced another dreamily exquisite electro-pop single.
First introduced as a bedroom project, Lucas found writing music as a cathartic release from the anxiety and depression he suffers from and, along with producers Mathias Bang Madsen and Jakob Løkkegaard, has continued to expand and develop The Chairman’s sound year on year. His debut album 2064, was unveiled to critical acclaim in his native Denmark, with the record receiving a huge amount of national airplay. Now, having recently released one single, and with Dandelions due to drop later in May, The Chairman is aiming to continue to pick up even more recognition her in the UK and beyond.
Dandelions is out now via Danish Music Entertainment (DK) and available to buy on iTunes and stream on Spotify.
