The Danish dance producer Trentemøller mixed Adore Life, the album that the great UK postpunk band Savages released earlier this year. And now that Trentemøller’s got his own album coming out, he’s recruited Savages frontwoman Jehnny Beth to sing on “River In Me,” his new single. “[Beth] has this really intense and unique voice and it ended up being really challenging, and fun, to take that voice out of the Savages’ universe and into mine,” Trentemøller says in a press release. “River In Me” is a badass song, a bouncy-but-icy new-wave track that makes the most of Beth’s tough-as-hell vocals. And its new video, directed by Riton Emenius, might be the most Scandinavian thing I’ve ever seen. It’s a bloody, shadowy, apocalyptic look at car crashes, makeout sessions, and hockey practice. Check it out below.
Trentemøller’s new album Fixion is out in September on his In My Room label.
