Exec The Limber Real Limited Vinyl LP

'The Limber Real' grasps existential loneliness in a world of individuals with an arresting and insisting voice atop of and intertwined with soulful, fragile piano work. Exec is singer-songwriter Troels Abrahamsen, a notable figure in Denmark from leading Gold-selling Danish electro-rock band VETO through to solo records under his own name and the alias I Know That You Know. 'The Limber Real', the debut album from Abrahamsen's new EXEC moniker, is polar opposite of his electronic releases: purely analogue, stripped down to piano, vocals and raw human emotion. Abrahamsen worked tirelessly through winter 2015 recording sessions to capture the sound in his head and follow sound right down to the perfect takes, embracing imperfection and accepting vulnerability - resulting in this highly dynamic, emotive album. 'The Limber Real' is in part inspired by Nordic psalm traditions, guided by its particular harmonies and structures - but despite the influence of Nordic psalm, 'The Limber Real's themes come in from a world without religion, where one is alone despite surrounded by people and their deafening noise. EXEC transcends these distractions, with Troels' exemplary vocal work continuously reaching new emotional highs with a huge range in dynamics and timbre, weaving seamlessly throughout his blissful piano work. 'The Limber Real' is proudly released by Tambourhinoceros, the label behind Rangleklods, Palace Winter & CTM. Troels Abrahamsen is a notable figure on the Danish music scene, known as the lead singer of Gold-selling Danish electro-rock band VETO and for his several successful solo records under his own name and the alias I Know That You Know. Abrahamsen has also contributed vocals to electronic heavyweights such as Kölsch and Matthew Dear/Audion. The initial pressing 'The Limber Real' is limited to 500 copies on vinyl.
