Artwork by Peter Curzon
Hailing from Copenhagen, Rosenthal is the moniker of Jeppe Kiel Revsbech, an artist playing around in the intersection between dreamy pop and indie rock. I’m sure you will love it if you’re into bands like The Cure or Cocteau Twins. He just released a fresh new single called ‘A Dream’. I will suggest you to check it out while reading about its creation below.
According to Jeppe, his new single is his own way of trying to put words to a vision of the perfect relationship. Written at the time of a chaotic relationship with his ex-girlfriend, ‘A Dream’ is an attempt to envision a relationship of harmony and bliss.
“I wrote the song while being in a relationship that was anything but blissful, so the lyrics try to capture a reverie I had at that time of my ex-girlfriend and me at her parents beach house, free of our ‘troubled past’. The words are quite simple and naïve, but that is really how they are meant to be.”
The single will officially release on November 6 via Jeppe’s own label Afterimages, and what is even more impressive than his sound is the fact that he managed to persuade Peter Curzon to help him out with the cover art for ‘A Dream’. Maybe you do not know Peter Curzon by name, but he is actually the man behind some of the album covers from giants such as Pink Floyd, Muse, and The Mars Volta.
In connection with the release will also follow a video created in collaboration with Yamit Rosenbach and Sara Bøgh of KnockKnock. Check out ‘A Dream’ and the accompanying video below. It is definitely worth it!
