WhoMadeWho - I Don't Know
Once again playing on the fringes of pop, Danish experimental trio, WhoMadeWho (Embassy of Music), have made an explosive comeback with "I Don’t Know". The single was co-produced by ambitious, electronic twosome, Kenton Slash Demon (Kompakt, True Panther Sounds) and is the band’s first new studio music in almost one and a half years, since the release of Hi & Low (2016). "I Don't Know" is accompanied by a heady selection of remixes from Adana Twins (Exploited), Stereocalypse(Get Physical Music) , Fur Coat (BPitch Control, Crosstown Rebels, Hot Creations) and Margot (Border Community, Kill The DJ), and a breathtaking live performance captured at Northside Festival.

"I Don’t Know was made in a period where we basically just wanted to try to produce songs in ways that we were not used to. We had an idea of trying to compose a song based on vocal hooks and suddenly we had a very special sounding demo track were most melodic parts are made by vocals which are edited and manipulated. The hook "I Don’t Know” was made because I didn’t know what to sing. Somehow that hook was so strong that I quickly built the lyric around it. Instantly it gave me memories of when I was stuck in transit travelling to Guadalajara. A situation where I had lost my passport and was refused to travel through the US by Homeland Security… so emotionally that’s the essence of the song. Threw in lyrical references to the Danish poem Memphis Station by Danish poet Johannes V Jensen together with lyricist Gisli Gislason afterwards. All in all, this song was made in thirty minutes, in an intuitive flow."
