Karim Theilgaard Releases Debut Single "The Way We Used To Be"
Karim Theilgaard - Artist and TCK - Releases His Solo Debut Single: The Way We Used To Be.
The debut will be supported by what Karim describes as a 'beautifully brutal' music video and a making-of featurette.
London. November 19th, 2012.
Karim Theilgaard returns to the music scene with a hard-hitting song entitled The Way We Used To Be. This single will be the first of three, paving the way for a complete EP to be released in 2013.
The recording sessions took place at studios in Roskilde, Denmark - home of the Roskilde Festival, the largest music event in Northern Europe - and at Konk Studios in North London who have played host to the likes of Depeche Mode, Massive Attack and Arctic Monkeys. Engineering the recordings was Karim’s long-term collaborator and friend, head-engineer Dougal Lott.
Konk provided the perfect atmospherical backdrop, allowing me to strike the mood I wanted to put in to my songs. There was a warm and playful ambiance, perfect for channeling creativity.
Final engineering was completed at Abbey Road studios by Peter Mew.
'I used to pass by those famous buildings on my way to university everyday. I never thought I’d be in the position to have my music completed there. Its such a privilege'.
Listeners can expect a mix of punchy beats mixing punchy guitars, electronic textures and delicate melodies.
'In contemporary music there is too much focus on sanitizing everything. I’m not striving for perfection in my recordings but to draw people in by tugging at their heart strings. Art isn’t perfect, it shouldn’t be. Its always evolving'.
A music video for the single will also be released, which Karim has previously enticed fans by describing as 'beautifully brutal'.
'Relationships make us, break us, destroy us and bring us back together again; whether it is one that relates to love, friendship, internally or externally. I wanted to illustrate that viscerally by contrasting and juxtaposing those physical and emotional sentiments.'
The video was directed by Joao Retorta. A rising star in the London street and art-photography world, he brings an edgy and grainy aesthetic touch to his projects derived from shooting on cheap film. This is his first time directing and editing a music video.
The industry is already taking note of Karim with producers such as Thomas Hansen Skarbye (Alicia Keys) describing him as having a glam-rock vocal in the super leagues.
“The Way We Used To Be” is out on iTunes November 20th. 2012.
