Majken is an LA based singer-songwriter of Danish origin. Says her inspirations are Leonard Cohen and Velvet Underground which are two good inspirations to have. Her music comes off as hazy brand of 70s inspired pop music. Check out a couple of tracks on her upcoming debut, due out on 8/25. Here’s some info via the PR machine.

Majken wrote and recorded Dancing Mountains on a journey between gritty Los Angeles, romantic Paris and the simple, laid back feel of the Nordic Fjord, where she spent her childhood. Influenced by experimental rock legends such as The Velvet Underground and the sensibilities of master songwriters like Leonard Cohen, Majken creates experimental pop with accessible themes and song structure. Her collection of dreamy songs contain raw, emotive lyrics, cushioned by indie beach rock and a vintage Europop vibe. She’s inspired by wild nature, breakfast in bed, the various cities she’s visited and called home and the people in those places.

Dancing Mountains reflects on vivid dreams, fond memories and restless nights. Majken’s sultry vocal melodies, intoxicating layers of sound and surf rock guitar come together to create an ideal soundtrack for a summer daydream. Album track “Everything’s Wild” encapsulates this feeling, inspired by floating wild in a bizarre dream state – not alive and not awake. “A Little More Time,” produced by Cody Crump, is about a hazy heartbreak while “Fainted Love” reflects on a summer fling, through rose colored glasses and introspection. All songs were written by Majken, with the majority produced in collaboration with Jesse Nolan and Maxime Sokolinski. “You And I” was produced by Fingazz.
