Trentemøller

Trentemøller

I was surprised when I first heard ‘Moan’, since I know Trentemøller from his amazing, but rather hard remix of Royksopp’s ‘What else is there’. And here he comes with this wonderfully aerial, gently pulsing, creepy song featuring vocals from Ann Troll. What can I say, I adore such surprises!

What’s more, this song has absolutely captivating video. Laika’s story is presented the way it suits mood of the track, its lyrics, tension – pretty much everything, just perfectly. See for yourself:

I only wonder how does it happen, that Belka and Strelka, two dogs that actually made it to the orbital and survived, aren’t even half as well-known as poor Laika that died aboard Sputnik 2 from stress and overheating.
