Back in the summer of 2012, Danish polymath Tomas Barfod released his debut solo album, the sophisticated mesh of electronics that is Salton Sea. Lauded by the likes of Pitchfork, Dazed & Confused and Gorilla vs Bear, its success took Barfod slightly by surprise. Inspired by a move to LA and mainly written and recorded on the road, often in hotel rooms on his laptop, it was an album that was imbued with a sense of spontaneity and experimentation. Its success has paved the way for the forthcoming follow-up, Love Me, an album that continues this spirit of adventurousness but takes it to a whole new level.
His skills as a dj has taken him around the world, where he has played legendary venues like Fabric (London), Panorama Bar (Berlin), Bar 25 (Berlin), Goa (Rome), Social Club (Paris), Echoplex (LA). Latest addition is his live show featuring a 3-piece live band including Nina K.
The last couple of years Tomas has been sharing his time between Los Angeles and Copenhagen. In LA he works as a producer and have cuts on several international albums.
"Barfod's been at it for a while now, both on his own and as a part of electro-pop Danes WhoMadeWho, but he reached a greater level of visibility with his latest LP, Salton Sea, which bridged the gap between techno's knotty machinations and indie-pop's sense of low-key charm." --Pitchfork at SXSW
