Søren Juul’s debut album - Somewhere Else released under the unassuming alias of Indians - came out in 2013 and multiple tours of Europe and the States soon followed.
He even temporarily relocated from Copenhagen for stints in both New York and Portland. Just when things were calming down, he was invited to score a key scene in the hugely anticipated film adaptation of John Green’s cult novel, The Fault in Our Stars.
Now back home and with city life swapped for the calm of Svendborg (an ancient coastal town in Denmark’s South Eastern corner), Søren seems to have found the perfect balance. With a better studio at his disposal and a band to now call upon, he’s making music that’s a clear step-up in both scope and ambition.
Today, Søren’s airing ‘Ambitions’, the first track to be heard from these sessions. Premiering today on KEXP, it’s the first track from his self-titled EP out September 4th. Charting the hard yards that accompanied his travels and missing home, ‘Ambitions’ builds a euphoric charm in a way only Scandinavian artists seem capable of. You can listen to the new track on YouTube here, or in the player below.
The new album is close to completion and will be released next year.
