Get into Maria Køhnke’s new EP, “Don’t Look”!
With sparkling pop tunes that navigate between the anthemic and the intimate, Maria Køhnke makes her entrance on the music scene with confidence and a bright musical vision. With her debut EP, “Don’t Look”, comes a stunning animated music video for “Don’t Look At Me” made by acclaimed Dutch digital art duo TeYosh. Maria’s vision for the video is to display a representation of the introverted mind.
Comeback in a new fanciful dress might seem a more fitting description, since Maria Køhnke is an experienced vocalist, producer and songwriter, having already made her mark on the Scandinavian music scene. Køhnke has had a long revered career, having recorded and toured with Swan Lee, Nikolaj Nørlund, Nicole Atkins, Robyn among many others. After a long void in her musical life, where Køhnke embarked on a highly succesful career as a digital designer, she teamed up with Anders Stig Møller (ex- Turboweekend) and Fredrik Okazaki (Robyn, Röyksopp, Seinabo Sey), who respectively co-produced and mixed the new songs.
Maria Køhnke’s music is a confident and genre-diverse expression with reminiscences of French music, 80’s evergreen hooks, the artpop sophistication of Kate Bush and Tame Impala’s alternative approach to modern music. Alluring and catchy, Maria sounds like all the things you love and at the same time like nothing else. In 2007 she released her debut solo album “Collector”, featuring contributions by Christian Bech (Pleasure Machine) and Sune Wagner (The Raveonettes). She is also part of the danish choral ensemble Korage with 12 female solo artists including Sharin Foo. With the EP release comes a new music video for “Don’t Look At Me” launching Friday September 25th. Maria Køhnke met TeYosh on a design conference (being a digital designer herself).
