The multi-instrumentalist Scandinavian mastermind behind sugar-sweet hits like “Reckless” and “Spell On You” is back with an emotional soft-pop ballad, “Sunday Morning”, giving fans both sides of the renaissance man of pop, and offer accessibility to potential new fans all across the globe.
Fans likely know Laust Sonne best as the drummer for the iconic Danish band D-A-D (Disneyland After Dark). The band has been a staple on the rock circuit with their over the top live shows, infectious energy, and lighthearted approach to songwriting. Laust himself is known to kill with crowds, specifically being perched atop a 30 foot high hydraulic drum riser. But in the spirit of artists like Phil Collins and Dave Grohl, his songwriting chops were just too strong to keep him confined behind the drums and he stepped out from the back and to the front of the stage. And ss a solo artist, this enigmatic music maker has become impossible not to root for.
“Sunday Morning” is Laust Sonne’s soft introspective tale of wanting someone more than they want you. The push and pull of romance, where love trumps lust, but the feeling isn’t mutual. One person has their heart dragged along while the other gets exactly what they need. “I’m nothing but a brick in the wall, I’m nothing but a trick you can call in, I’m just your fix on an early Sunday morning.” Laust sings this chorus with utter apathy, from the position of the one who caught feelings. This video romanticizes Sonne’s muse, her beauty shining through the screen. She lives freely, going out and dancing while he is chained to his phone, unable to stop thinking about her. Finally, at the end of the night, she shows up to his door, on her own accord of course, and charms her way into his arms, where the cycle begins all over again.
