WAAKTAAR & ZOE WORLD OF TROUBLE Limited Purple Vinyl LP

Overview:
It is with great pleasure Drabant Music can announce the new project from legendary Norwegian songwriter and guitar player Pl Waaktaar-Savoy, of a-ha and Savoy fame.

Waaktaar & Zoe is the name of the new duo, where Pls exquisite and timeless songwriting will be carried into a new era by a talented and totally fresh new singer called Zo Aphrodite Gnecco. They get the balance right. Although she is a new face, Zo is no stranger to music and studios, being the daughter of American musician Jimmy Gnecco, Pls friend and collaborator from the project Weatherwane.

The songs on the debut album World of Trouble, serve as perfect vehicles for the out of-her-time-ness of Zos deep and expressive voice, bringing a cinematic quality to the music. Pl will, because of his early global pop hits with a-ha, be forever linked with the glitzy and urbane glass&concrete pop of the eighties, but throughout his career with that band, and his other band Savoy, he has additionally shown a knack for songwriting drawn from the soil where classic pop and rock of the sixties and seventies has grown. He has also kept a keen interest in whats going on today, and living in Manhattan and Brooklyn for the last couple of decades has made its mark on his songwriting and sound.

The first single, "Beautiful Burnout", is available on most digital platforms now, and on a limited edition seven inch vinyl single. The guitar parts and beautiful songlines has this specific classic quality: it sticks in your head. The lush, beatlesque string arrangements gives the rootsy song wings to fly. And his lyrics, about contently walking the streets of Soho in the beautiful morning sun, watching other people doing the zombie walk to work to do their part for the modern machine, gets new meaning when sung from the perspective of a twenty year old girl weary of the pressures of our society.
