School of X

The last couple of years, non-stop touring was suddenly put on hold for Littauer, the man behind School of X. Littauer took off to his childhood home in the countryside to write, capturing these swelling emotions and reflecting on his childhood. The result is School of X’s sophomore album Dancing Through The Void, released on Sept. 24, ‘21 via Tambourhinoceros. “It’s about trying to find the meaning in things. Juggling with the different parts of life that make it a full life. Asking why do I do what I do?” Following his ‘20 debut album Armlock, ‘19 EP Destiny and ‘17 EP Faded. Dream., School of X’s new album is a more varied display of styles and emotions. School of X, once a jewel in Copenhagen’s underground scene, has grown quickly both within Denmark and abroad. Previous songs feature contributions from Ana Perrote (Hinds), Spencer Zahn (Empress Of, Half Waif), Soleima and Trentemøller among many others. Likewise, Littauer has contributed drums and musical direction to MØ, Clairo and Liss. Mixed by Chris Tabron (Beyonce, Common, Erykah Badu, The Strokes), School of X’s album Dancing Through The Void is the sound of an indie-pop star about to hit his stride.
