I tend to gravitate to art that is dark and somber, haunting and opaque, no matter if its film, music, or any other form of artistry. I’m pretty sure that’s why I was immediately drawn to School of X’s sound. Rasmus Littauer, the Danish musician behind the project, crafts darkwave tinged alt electronica. New single Forever is a perfect example of why I can’t resist School of X. Its icy mesmerizing synths, urban beats, and fevered vocals fall somewhere in between TR/ST and LISS, with a pinch of recent Portugal. the Man (in particular Noise Pollution from their latest album). Forever is strangely captivating and deliciously skin crawling. You can re-visit Words and the scant few other tunes School of X has offered up on his Soundcloud, here.
