Danish electro-pop artist Lucas Berner, AKA The Chairman has unveiled his latest single Masquarade In The Radio, taken from his lucid sophmore album The Strange Life, out 29th September 2017 via Danish Music Entertainment (DK).
Masquerade In The Radio, combines elements of old school soul with electronic production, premiered on Fame Magazine and is now available to stream on The Chairman’s Soundcloud page.
The Chairman has also released a lyric video to accompany the track which is available to view on his YouTube channel now.
Masquarde In The Radio follows the release of singles Dandelions, which premiered on Gigslutz and 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 three singles, and with The Strange Life due to drop later in September, The Chairman is aiming to continue to pick up even more recognition here in the UK and beyond.
The Strange Life by The Chairman is out on 29th September 2017 via Danish Music Entertainment (DK).
