You may not have heard the name Vera yet, but you might have heard his beats. The young Danish producer has provided the psych-pop backbone for songs by Copenhagen bands Liss and Off Bloom, as well as producing this extra-hype bootleg of MØ's "Kamikaze." On his own new single "In And Out Of Love," a forlorn sax and faintly AutoTuned vocal (provided by an anonymous friend) meander over a beat that's plaintive and seductive, creating a low-key pop sound that's all cigarette smoke and mood lighting.
“Last spring I was out on tour with Liss and after a lot of hours on the bus, I came back with a bunch of beats," Vera explained to The FADER over email. "When I got back to my studio in Copenhagen, 'In And Out Of Love' was the first track that took shape. I had just watched a television series about a taxi company based in Copenhagen in the late '90s featuring these lovely, hard-working taxi drivers driving a bunch of posh yuppie people to the trendy, decadent bistro cafes. I imagined that this was the music that they listened to when they were sitting in those cafes, drinking their cappuccinos and sipping on rosé.”
