Sara Savery ‘The Diver’ Worldwide Release

Sunday, November 10th, 2013

sara-savery-press-by-tobias-wilner
Sara Savery’s album ‘The Diver’ is out now worldwide! Buy the album here!!

We’re so proud to have the opportunity to release Sara Savery’s awesome debut album. We’ve been fans of Sara Savery since her release of the People Press Play record at Morr music back in 2005, followed by the Ghost Society album in 2010.

There is no intermediary between the artist and the listener. It’s a pure sounding record, coming directly from the artist. Produced, written and performed by the artist herself. No music business-factory- assembly line madness trying to make everybody happy here. You like it or you don’t. It’s dreamy, slow and extremely catchy. Electronica, indie, shoegazing. Call it what you want. To us, it’s the sound of Sara Savery. Simple as that.

We started up with a premiere of her song ‘The Diver’ at On Jay’s-Z Life&Times followed by a premiere of the beautiful video for her song ‘Angel’ at Diffuser. The video is directed by Janus Metz, Winner of the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. Her second video directed by Tobias Wilner was premiered on Earmilk and Vs. Magazine.

Sara has been called an ‘effortlessly sexy singer’ by Highsnobiety. The german magazine DE:BUG wrote ‘When she sings, it’s a nonchalant ease on sparkling clear melodies’. Prefixmag calls her singing a ‘repeated pleasure’.

We hope you’ll dive in and enjoy this record as much as we do! - (DPC Records)

Watch her latest video directed by Tobias Wilner below.

“Solid debut” - WRUV 90.1 FM

“Sara Savery is an artist with an intriguing and beautiful sound. A sound that will cause you to immediately think, “Okay, I like this.” The next day you’ll find yourself thinking, “Okay, I really dig this,” and the following day realize, “Wow, I’m in love.” - Highlight Mag.

“Sara Savery tells us to keep our eyes closed, but it’s hard to do this when the video for her track, “Eyes Closed,” is as stunning as the song addcting.” - Earmilk.com

Blue Foundation: The Soundtrack of My Life

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

blue-foundation-tobias-wilner-brooklyn

Dear everybody

During the next couple of months I’ll be a bit too busy to be announcing “Soundtrack of My Day”, so I’ve made you a list of some of the records that have meant a lot to me over the years. Records I’m still listening to after 10-20 years.
I’m trying to stay away from the computer as much as possible and am spending my free time (if I have any) skateboarding. My main focus right now is on the upcoming Blue Foundation live shows, video’s, producing Findlay Brown etc..

I’ve made a list of some of the records that have meant a lot to me over the years. It’s the soundtrack of my life though I’m sure I have forgotten a few. Enjoy!

Best

Blue Foundation “Eyes on Fire” Music Video

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

// Official Blue Foundation “Eyes on Fire” Music Video feat. dancer Masha Greif.

The video has been shoot in the nightclub “The Black Hole”, in the Russsian city of Chelyabinsk. Located in the foothills of the Ural Mountains.

During the Cold War the city did not appear on any official maps and was a closed off atomic zone, which produced tanks and the first atomic bomb of the Sovjet Union.
For 45 years, Chelyabinsk, was closed to all foreigners and journalists .
Only in January of 1992 did President Boris Yeltsin sign a decree changing that.
For decades the atomic complex Mayak has let out radioactive water directly into the Techa - Chelyabinsk largest river. Scientists and enviromental organisations call the area ‘one of the the most polluted places’ on eart.

Besides its warindustry, the city is has a very vibrant dance scene. Masha Greif, is a solodancer at the Chelyabinsk Theater of Contemporary Dance, lead by the Choreografer Olga Pona. Masha Greif is one of the best dancers in Russia and winner of ‘The Golden Mask’ dance prize 2007 in Moscow.

This video is dedicated to the art scene in Chelyabinsk.

Director: Boris Bertram

bf_byens_lys_small2.jpg

After our two sell-out concerts in Store Vega last Autumn, we fancied playing somewhere a bit different in Copenhagen this Spring. Instead of going bigger, wilder and more explosive, we thought about which surroundings would most suit our music.We didn’t just want to cram a venue with as many people as possible; instead, we’re offering a very special experience for the audience as well as for ourselves, so we’ve chosen to play five exclusive, intimate concerts in an unusual space with its own mood and atmosphere. Each concert will have seating room for just 150 people.Because we’ve created music for a variety of films (among them ‘Miami Vice’ and ‘Drabet’), we thought it would be fitting to play in a cinema. So we chose Byens Lys because, apart from being an all-round fantastic venue, it’s also Denmark’s only cinema with a sandy floor. A unique, one-of-a-kind oasis in a town which wasn’t just built, but which has evolved over many years and lives.We’ve definitely had a lot of our most intense musical experiences in small clubs and venues - often with no more than 50 to 200 people in the audience. And in this environment people can feel witnesses to something really special. The gigs imprint themselves on the consciousness and stay with you the rest of your life. Of course, big concerts are memorable, but nothing compares to the vibe of a small, intimate performance.We hope you’ll find the time to come by this old cinema and enjoy Byens Lys with us on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of May.

Big ups and see you there

Details for the shows at Byens Lys in Christiania , Copenhagen:

2 May: 22.30
3 May:19.30 + 22.30
4 May:19.30 + 22.30
Pre-sale starts today the 28th March.

Life Of A Ghost

“Life Of A Ghost”:

We released our 3rd album “Life Of A Ghost” on the 24 september 2007.

Since then we have had a big change. Our bassist player and friend Sune Martin has left the band to continue to work on his solo stuff. We wish him all best for the future and knows he will do well. He recently did the soundtrack for the David Lynch documentary, and it’s really beautiful music.

After doing some press we went back into the studio where we currently are rehearsing for the tour. We are really looking forward coming out to meet you.

More about the tour you can find in Events.

Take a look around our new site. Eazy to find songs, videos, merchandise and information about past, present and future activities in Blue Foundation and related projects.

Enjoy
