Utopia is a tale of juxtaposition.

On one hand, the music paints an idyllic and dynamic soundscape. Lead single “Højder” springs with bright, twinkling keys – part wurlitser, part piano—balanced by a warm, sauntering bassline that has the feel of a tango. Others, like “Tusmørke” lean more into the jazz lane, a sultry nighttime tune sizzling with violins and dubbed out keys.

On the other hand, Utopia was by no means made under ideal circumstances. The duo battled constant technical difficulties—exploding reel-to-reel machines, a mixing board that constantly broke down—as if haunted by the malfunctioning gear. Bremer was dealing with personal issues at home that made recording a struggle at times.

Utopia encapsulates what Bremer/McCoy do best: kaleidoscopic instrumental music, touching a multiverse of genre that evokes passion and promotes contemplation.
