Norwegian electronic duo, Lemaitre, announce the release of their newest EP, 1749,

due January 29, 2016 via Astralwerks. A trailer for the 5-track collection premiered today; fans can watch the clip HERE. The band is also premiering a remix for single “Closer” by Japanese artist starRo via “Follow on Spotify to Unlock” promotion. Fans can click HEREto be directed to a landing page where they can follow the band on Spotify and a stream of the remix will be unlocked to listen.  Fans can also “like” Lemaitre on Facebook from the landing page and view upcoming tour dates.

            Lemaitre’s new EP, 1749, brims with pop gems sung by Ulrik Denizou Lund. “Not Too Late” and “Day Two” both have a bright ’70s-pop feel even as Lund and Ketil Jansen’s tones and beats live definitively in the post-EDM present. “Stepping Stone” featuring Mark Johns is a lean groove with a sing-along chorus. They also make smart use of guest vocalist Jennie A on “Closer” and producer Giraffage on the tropical-leaning anime-videogame fantasia “Nishio 2.” 1749 is not only the title of the duo’s forthcoming EP; it’s also the address of their Los Angeles home and studio. The band says, “1749 is our home address and the title of our EP, but it’s more than that. 1749 represents the journey we’ve made and the process of creating music in our home away from home. We live with our video director, manager and our friend Sebastian “Coucheron,” who also makes music. We all moved together from Norway to chase the dream of making music and living in LA.  It’s kind of like the TV-show Entourage except without all the money, ladies, and fancy parties.”
Released in July, single “Closer” has been the band’s fastest growing track to date, with over eight million streams and counting. The horn-infused and synth heavy collaboration track came when Lemaitre’s manager discovered Jennie A’s album Gemini Gemini. The official video for “Closer,” which premiered on Flaunt Magazine, was directed by Johannes Greve Muskat and pays homage to the great American film director, Wes Anderson. Last month, Lemaitre debuted a “Closer” remix by Washington D.C. producer duo, Indiginis. This Song Is Sick declares “Indiginis brewed up something dreamy on this remix, placing a collection of soft future bass arrangements into the framework while adding some dazzling synths. The end result brings a whole new round of playability to the table and keeps the mood fresh for listeners to enjoy for hours.”
            Lemaitre will be hitting the road early next year for live dates including New York City, Santa Barbara, and San Francisco, tickets are on sale now at www.lemaitremusic.com. starRo will be supporting the duo in San Francisco and Santa Barbara. On December 12th, Lemaitre will perform with label mate Audien at Breckenridge Ski Resort in Breckenridge, Colorado as part of the Dew Tour. For additional Dew Tour event or telecast information, visit DewTour.com. At Lemaitre’s shows, the imaginative arrangements are further fleshed-out thanks to a live drummer, David Myers, who has toured with Frank Ocean. “We always really liked the aesthetic and the feel of drummers onstage,” Jansen says. “It immediately feels more energetic.”

About Lemaitre:
Lemaitre is Norway’s latest entry into the smooth, melodic electronic tradition of artists who temper their electronic grooves with adept pop songwriting. “We want to walk the line,” explains Ulrik Denizou Lund, who along with Ketil Jansen is Lemaitre, “and do everything from a loop-based song to straight pop or rock songs that have more structure.” Lemaitre have more than a million followers on SoundCloud, and the duo’s 2012 EP, Relativity 2, shot to No. 1 on the iTunes Electronic chart in the U.S. and Canada. They number among their fans some of dance music’s biggest artists – Porter Robinson, Madeon, Kygo, and Martin Solveig to name a few. Robinson took them on tour last summer. Lemaitre’s music is finding outlets beyond the dance floor as well. In September 2013, their song “1:18,” from The Friendly Sound EP, was used as a synch in an ad for the Apple iPhone 5C. (View the commercial here.)
Lemaitre currently resides in Los Angeles, hunkered down in their home studio putting the finishing touches on their upcoming seventh studio EP, due early 2016.
