Key component of the Copenhagen music scene School of X, aka Rasmus Littauer has dropped the latest single from his forthcoming new album, 'Dancing Through The Void' - due 24th August via Tamberhinoceros.

'Race For Caress' is a slice of indie-pop mastery. A testament to Littauer's years in the music industry, he craftily combines a laidback, lo-fi vocal with a chorus so subtly infectious it'll stick in your mind for days.

I wanted to make a song that holds you in a tight grip lyrically... an iron grip” explains Littauer.“The song is about how love hunts you down, no matter how much you fuck up or try to strangle it. It’s about longing for love and acceptance of who you are andchasing it for your whole life... it’s such a universal need that we all need fulfilled.

Effortlessly cool, soothingly danceable and destined to land a secure place in our playlists, School of X is a hidden gem deserving of a breakthrough as expansive as his talents.
