It only feels natural that a drummer sings the words “I need rhythm for the soul, you could never fill the hole”, which is the case with School of X from Denmark and his single ‘Words’.
Behind the artist name we find Rasmus Littauer, who’s usually known for sitting behind a drum set supporting fellow Danish citizen MØ on her tours around the world. He has a big bunch of similarly impressive collaborations on his resumé and he is also a member of the band The Asteroids Galaxy Tour.
Now however, it’s different. When School of X performs live he is not sitting behind the drums, but – as mentioned – singing. It’s a tender and clear voice that has been hiding behind those drum sticks. The song itself is melancholic and hazy, dressed in electro pop vibes and a sturdy beat, like a meeting between reality and a daydream. According to Rasmus, the song is about wanting things to be as they are, but at the same time yearning fiercely for something else.
