Just who the hell is School Of X? Well, Dane Rasmus Littauer’s solo project might be new to you, but his drumming sure isn’t. Littauer has previously been a sticksman for MØ and Major Lazer, but now he’s stepping out from behind the drumkit to launch his solo career. After signing a deal with Danish label ArtPeople, he’s just put out his debut single proper, ‘Words’.
‘Words’ sits somewhere between synth-pop and electronic dance, blending a loose groove with a sharp melodic chorus. Dreamy and raw, Littauer’s vision of music is significantly more left field than that of his famous friends, but that doesn’t mean that this isn’t a pop song: Listen to ‘Words’ enough and you’ll soon find out just how infectious it is, and if Littauer has more music like this, then’s he’s going to be a big deal, very soon.
‘Words’ is out now.
