Gents X Smoke Machine

GENTS is a gifted Danish duo consisting of Niels Fejrskov Juhl and Theis Vesterløkke, both fascinated by synths and 1980's inspired romantic song writing. During the late fall and winter 2018/2019 the duo worked on new some new music preparing for a future album release. The outcome of their creative work became the single ’Smoke Machine’ that came out of a field trip to Samsø and later a co-writing session with Søren Christensen. "Smoke Machine" is based around the sound of synths with strong and hooky melodies on the top. To this you can add personal lyrics (where smoke is a metaphor for the visible, but intangible) elegantly redeemed by Niels' deep vocal. We take the single format very serious: besides an intimate live concert at KLUB (a prologue to their headliner show at Store Vega), the collaboration between Prxjects and GENTS consisted of a music video, a live video, a Behind-the-track video and a podcast all zooming in on and covering the story and creation behind the single ’Smoke Machine’.
