He has had 3 albums to reach the top of the Danish charts, and 3 albums peaking at no. 2.He´s had 5 no 1 singles on the airplay charts including On The Radio and Spell on You, all of them receiving “the most played this week” tag on the biggest radio stations in DK. His releases has both received rave reviews and topped the Danish radio charts for long periods of time. He’s won 4 Grammys, a Nordic lifetime achievement award and the ‘musician of the year’ award in Denmark, the most prestigious music award for musicians there.
With an immediately hummable keyboard melody, Sunday Morning introduces you to a near 4 minutes of superbly performed 2015 romantic pop, showcasing a vocalist that, other than having a voice to die for, could almost be described as androgenous. Is this a boy or a girl, is it someone young or more experienced?
“The song Sunday Morning is about wanting someone more than he or she wants you. And about keeping up an affair that you know or suspect is no good for you. Still you keep coming back, forever hoping and longing for the little bits of sugar you get to enjoy along the way” Laust explains.
Sunday Morning is an effortless and dreamy piece of pop-music from an artist that not only possesses an obvious talent for writing and performing somehow perfect pop songs, but he is also a bit of a rarity in music, a sincere, nice and approachable pop-star, something that is not always the case.
In the end, Sunday Morning is a very contagious and “pop-tastic” song from an artist that seems ahead of his time.
