Description

Dinner is the alias for Danish singer and producer Anders Rhedin. Since 2012, Dinner has released ‘Girl’, ‘You Are Like LA’, a guided meditation tape and, in collaboration with Texas label Red Eye Transit, ‘Oui!’, a four-track EP that serves as a powerful introduction to this idiosyncratic musician.

Dinner’s songs seem to be inspired by his own life - in the lyrics one can find references to cities, parties and girls (the latter sometimes referred to as the ‘divine feminine’). Dinner himself claims that “All the songs are about death and transcendence.”

At times, Dinner sounds a bit like a sun-bleached cassette tape you’d find stuck behind your car’s dashboard, last played at a party in Dusseldorf in 1984, full of echoes of sweaty depressions, spiritual longings and earlymorning trances.

At other times, Dinner sounds a bit like melodic EBM-meets-Europop with elements of Danish darkwave. And sometimes he sounds more like the male descendant of Nico singing Eno-esque pop songs on discarded Julian Cope tracks.

Whomever you ask, you’ll find Dinner’s sound defies simple classification. In his own words, his influences range from rock ‘n’ roll and pop giants like Michael Jackson and Velvet Underground, to experimental tape-music pioneers like Steve Reich.
