New Friend – [School of X]

Copenhagen, Denmark’s School of X returns to Lyrical Lemonade with an excellent new song & video titled “New Friend.” Real name Rasmus Littauer, the artist has become one of my personal favorites this year for his eclectic musical range and talents. With his sophomore album Dancing Through the Void releasing this month, this single couldn’t be more successful in terms of building hype. Sonically School of X’s vocals are poignantly brilliant; the slow, piano-led instrumentation allows Littauer to steal the spotlight in every possible way. To liven up the track, the electric guitar elements quite literally electrify the record; especially the epic high-pitched chorus which I found myself singing after two or three spins. Stella Malfilatre’s directed music video provides a nostalgic-feel visually, as Littauer’s sharp outfits contrast brilliantly with the natural surrounding landscape. Overall, “New Friend” is a flawless offering, and I absolutely cannot wait to hear more from School of X. Watch the official music video below!
