The Knife’s Olof Dreijer has shared his first solo material since 2009. ‘Rosa Rugosa’ arrives today via Hessle Audio, marking the Swedish musician’s debut for the UK label run by Ben UFO. The connection came after Ben UFO included Dreijer’s ‘Echoes From Mamori’ on an EP for his Melodies Record Club series. Listen to ‘Rosa Rugosa’ below.
“I’m surprised to see how much fun I’m having making my own music after a longer period of working on other people’s projects,” Dreijer said in a statement. “I’ve been trying to make some colourful, energetic music with emotional melodies. I hope there’s room for that out on the dance floors.”
Earlier this year, Dreijer released Souvenir, a five-track collaborative EP with Mt. Sims.
