For fans of... José González, Fleet Foxes, Sigur Ros

Having been writing songs since he was a child, Danish songwriter and musician Lasse Matthiessen will release his new EP When We Collided on 10th November 2017
via Zpektakel Records / The Orchard.

Title track and lead single, the captivating When We Collided, is out now. You can listen to it via Matthiessen's Soundcloud page and it is also available to stream via Spotify and iTunes.


A collection of elevated and bittersweet symphonies, the EP profoundly explores different themes through Matthiessen’s touching and sincere songwriting style. Filled with rich lyrical storytelling, each track oozes a deep sense of honest emotion and raw passion.

Inspired by the nocturnal pulse of Paris in the summer, title track and lead single When We Collided offers delicate folk-infused melodies alongside Matthiessen’s rich, deep vocals and the spellbinding harmonies of Sara Hartman. Oozing a cinematic, emotion-strewn splendour, it’s the perfect introduction to this reflective collection.

From the delicate, twinkling melodies of ‘Broken Choir’ and ‘Sycamore Trees’ to the sweeping majestic grandeur and dark, haunting power of ‘Sorte Søer’ and ‘Alchemist Fire’, each track offers its own unique, captivating beauty.

Born in Copenhagen, and now living part-time in Berlin, Matthiessen writes music to share stories. Having recorded the EP in an old bunker in the Kreuzberg area, he didn’t want to be limited by the technical restrictions of a ‘cool’ studio, and felt that this venue suited his expressive and raw sound perfectly.

Now, having supported artists such as Suzanne Vega and Anna Calvi, Matthiessen hopes to work his way into listener’s hearts with this latest impassioned collection of tracks.

When We Collided, the forthcoming EP from Lasse Matthiessen, is out 10th November 2017
via Zpektakel Records / The Orchard.
