Woman meets machine. Zeroes and ones collide with emotions. Beautiful, pulsating electro pop emerges.
The stage is lit by a dim blue light, haze-like. Front-centre is a figure dancing about. The figure appears as a living circuit board – or are those fluorescent blood veins? Maybe both. She works from behind a table of electronic equipment and sings to soft, melodic electro-pop. Her name is Lydmor, and she will draw you in like a cyber siren.
Her civil name is Jenny Rosander, and under the moniker Lydmor she marries arty electro pop with dance elements in a mix of uptempo bangers with heavy mechanical beats and delicate, atmospheric ballads. Lydmor has released music since 2012, and in 2018 she reached an artistic peak with her third album I Told You I’d Tell Them Our Story.
The album, released by esteemed German label HFN (Lydmor joins the likes of Jacob Bellens, Trentemøller and Kasper Bjørke here), is inspired by a trip to Shanghai, and it certainly has a special late-night metropolitan pulse to it.
Lydmor can also be heard during the rolling credits in the Danish film Vildheks (the song is called “Vild” and is a piece of ear candy sung in Danish, for once), she has composed the music for a theatre play called "Orestien" which will premiere in May.
Lydmor is keeping busy playing concerts whenever and wherever she can. And she’s been around – from aforementioned Shanghai, China across Bangkok, Thailand to Saint Petersburg, Russia.
And in 2019 it’s time for Roskilde Festival. Look forward to a special fluorescent, futuristic concert that will have your body dancing and your heart bleeding.
