Lemaitre’s upcoming ‘1749’ is set for release on 29th this month, via Astralwerks in the US and Virgin EMI the UK. Here, the pair make smart use of producer Giraffage on the tropical-leaning anime-videogame fantasia ‘Nishio 2’

Lemaitre are Norway’s latest entry into the smooth, melodic electronic tradition of artists who temper their electronic grooves with adept pop songwriting. “We want to walk the line,” explains Ulrik Denizou Lund, who along with Ketil Jansen is Lemaitre, “and do everything from a loop-based song to straight pop or rock songs that have more structure.” Lemaitre have more than a million followers on SoundCloud, and the duo’s 2012 EP, Relativity 2, shot to No. 1 on the iTunes Electronic chart in the U.S. and Canada. They number among their fans some of dance music’s biggest artists — Porter Robinson, Madeon, Kygo, and Martin Solveig to name a few. Robinson also took them on tour last summer.

The first single from the EP ‘Closer’ was the band’s fastest growing track to date, with over eight million streams and counting and follow up ‘ Stepping Stone’ made it to number 1 on the Hype Machine. They are on tour in Europe in February and are also playing Coachella in April. Full live dates below.
