Editors’ Notes

Hannes Norrvide started Lust for Youth in 2009, making dark, blood-stoppingly cold electronic music that had inarguable allure. Joined by musician Loke Rahbek, the Swedish duo continued their foray into formidable industrial music. But after relocating to Denmark and adding new band member Malthe Fisher (who produces), their sound streamlined into something resembling the specterly soul of New Order and Joy Division dressed in Depeche Mode finery. And it’s brilliant. International follows the vibe of their previous (and first really accessible) work, Perfect View, with an impressive collection that's dance-worthy, haunting, melancholic, and beautiful. Reverbed, anvil-and-hammer percussion and thick, bouncing bass notes and synths drive songs like “Epoetin Alpha” and “Illume,” tunes well-steeped in the moody petulance that permeated early-‘80s (mostly British) alt-pop. English lyrics help, though some Swedish spoken word and singing is scattered throughout International (it's called International, you know). There are even hooky choruses that belie the group’s true pop heart (though the sparkle of “New Boys” makes it even harder to obscure).

Customer Reviews

So cool!

I love that this album is doing all the stuff I love which is like a resurgence of cool new-wave, goth-pop-synth... Unlike Pitchfork, I like the almost 5 minute of talking on the one song "Lungomare" because the words are delivered in a nice almost songlike pitch which I call "wording" (words/singing) and also because of the cool stuff that's going on in the background - very interesting. A very solid, modern sound. Recommended!

Biography

Formed: 2009 in Gothenburg, Sweden

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Lust for Youth is the solo vehicle of Swedish electronic musician Hannes Norrvide. The project began in 2009 in Gothenburg, Sweden at a collective venue/practice space when Norrvide's friends were starting up a punk band. He was inspired to join in, but he only had access to a somewhat useless toy keyboard, so due to the limitations of his instrument, he opted instead to make music alone. The early experiments of Lust for Youth were raw, primitive, and drony. Norrvide worked on the project tirelessly,...
