UK Artist of the Week: Lasse Matthiessen

No newcomer, Danish artist Lasse Matthiessen has been writing songs since he was a child, he’s supported the likes of Suzanne Vega and Anna Calvi, and now hopes to charm listeners with the cinematic grandeur of his upcoming new album.

Inspired by the nocturnal pulse of Paris in the summer, title track and lead single “When We Collided” is the perfect introduction to the heartfelt collection of songs. Filled with Matthiessen’s rich, deep vocals and smooth, twinkling melodies, it oozes a soaring, emotion-strewn splendour.

As the luscious vocal harmonies of Sara Hartman flow alongside Matthiessen’s sweeping majesty, the recording exudes a delicate, sophisticated musicality, making for a truly spellbinding slice of indie-folk. With each track on the upcoming album offering its own unique impassioned grace, reflective lyrical storytelling and subtle, haunting power, it’s bound to captivate on first listen.

With shades of the poignant emotive beauty of José González, When We Collided is in stores on 10th November via Zpektakel Records / The Orchard.
