Following this summer release of “The Highway Again”, Norway’s indie pop group Remington super 60 are back with a new atmospheric hit titled “Fake Crush”, released on November 15. The group consists of the duo Christoffer Schou, Elisabeth Thorsen with a little help from long time collaborator Magnus Abelsen. The duo was founded by the group’s songwriter and bedroom producer Christoffer more than twenty years ago.
After their debut album in 2001, the group has worked on several projects and singles, experimenting new sounds, but always maintaining a strong identity.
“The Highway Again” will be part of the Remington super 60’s forthcoming 6 track EP, out on January 24, 2020. The new material is released on Christoffer’s own label Café Superstar Recordings. Similarly to other tracks, “The Highway Again” has been inspired by Christoffer’s musical heroes Burt Bacharach, Brian Wilson, Velvet Underground as well as newer bands such as Stereolab, High Llamas, Cornelius, and Yo La Tengo & Eggstone.
The new single is about the feelings one experiences after falling in love with the wrong person, as the singer Elisabeth Thorsen croons “Is this love, well I don’t know, it feels so warm, but still so cold”. Her delicate and seductive voice, as well as the soft melody, characterize the atmosphere created by song.
