Röyksopp  Tricky Two

\
Röyksopp are set to release the counterpart to last year's critically acclaimed 'Junior' album on the 13th September. More introspective and freeform than its poppier partner and fully instrumental, the Nordic electronic pioneers Svein Berge and Torbjorn Brundtland recorded 'Senior' at the same time as 'Junior' and it finds Royksopp in fine form.

Torbjorn explains: "Junior' is an outgoing and direct album. It’s the youthful part of Röyksopp. We are young in bodies and old in heart. Or is it the other way? We have a certain schizophrenia – we want to make both energetic and really quiet music. 'Senior' is both quiet and introverted and we're delighted it's finally seeing the light of day. 'Senior is a very special release for us."

'Senior' was written as a complete set of tracks, each designated to take a specific part in the bigger piece. All individual tracks have been made with the intent of coexisting with the other tracks on the album.

Svein explains: "Each track is equally as important as its predecessor and successor. We feel that none of the tracks should be regarded outside of this context, ie. separated from the rest of the album. Quite a "brave"/stupid thing to do in this day & age of iPods and cherrypicking, one might suggest. We couldn't agree more - hell that's even probably why we did it. We just want to get it out there without any "MTV-formatted" videos and "singles" to campaign it."

Senior is forthcoming 13th September on Wall Of Sound
