NEW ALBUM “BLOOD MOON” OUT TODAY!!
We are so proud to announce that Blue Foundation’s new album “Blood Moon” is finally out today. The album features guest appearances by Mark Kozelek, Erika Spring (Au Revoir Simone (band)), Jonas Bjerre (Mew), Drop The Gun aka Sara Savery, Findlay Brown & Sonya Kitchell.
The album is recorded and mixed in Brooklyn NYC over the last 3 years.B lue Foundation ended up with almost 3 hours of music they needed to downscale to around an hour.
The lion’s share of the album is built around Tobias Wilner Official duets with guest vocalists. Blood Moon is a aberrant love story. The lesson is that love is not something you can attain or control, it is something you witnesses and experiences.

The Line Of Best Fit says about the songs ‘Lost Girl’ - ‘Lost Gir’ is a celestial escapade, with astral synths buffeted by solar winds and bass fizzing throughout. Bjerre’s signature falsetto is suspended in orbit around the beats, soaring and dipping in tandem with the song’s glittering melodies.
Gold Flake Paint words about ‘Watch You Sleeping’ - ‘Watch You Sleeping‘ is one of the most quietly powerful, furiously evocative, tracks that 2016 has produced thus far.

Tobias Wilner of Blue Foundation has created a hunting soundtrack for the latest Danish series from DR – producers of The Killing, Borgen & The Legacy – Follow the Money. This brand new eco-crime thriller explores a world of corporate crime in which a group of powerful business leaders reside. When a dead body is found near a local wind farm, police inspector Mads is assigned to the job, refusing to believe that it was an accident. Follow the Money stars Thomas Bo Larsen who appeared in Thomas Vinterberg’s The Hunt (2012) and Festen (1998). Larsen also stars alongside Natalie Madueño Wolfsberg, Esben Smed and Nikolaj Lie Kaas (The Killing III, The Keeper of Lost Causes). Sara Savery has also contributed to the music scoring of the show. The first two episodes of the series, directed by Per Fly, whose films include The Inheritance and Manslaughter, were screened at the recent Berlin Film Festival.
Listen to Tobias Wilner’s hunting main theme from the Danish crime show ‘Bedraget/Follow the Money’ in it’s entirety here.
The solo cello is played by Isabel Castellvi (Sun Kil Moon, CocoRosie, Mivos Quartet). Stay tuned regarding soundtrack release date.

“The two danish filmakers Cecilie Evert and Simon Lundsgaard directed this video together for our song ‘Describe’.
We wanted to show that us people can be very judgmental. On the surface things that we do not know might seem repulsive, but if we look deeper it might not be that alien. That is what the viewer should see in this video.
Sometimes you can be afraid of things that you can’t define or describe. But if you look beyond the surface you will find something you recognize in yourself. That is what this video is about.
Stylistically they were very inspired by film director Carl Th. Dreyer, the minimalism of his universe; the use of light, shadows and space in black and white, the long shots and slow camera movements.
For the story Cecilie and Simon were inspired by my lyrics.
“… I can describe it all for you, if you got the nerves/guts to look into my eyes.”
The two actors in the video, Louise and Martin, both have Down’s Syndrome. That was of course a challenge for them as directors.
Martin and Louise are a couple in real life as well as in the video. they chose them because it was clear to them that they have a very unique relationship. They saw a certain chemistry between them. Their love for each other is very strong and unique, and we expected it to shine through the lens, which we think it did.
The video was shot in Denmark. It was very important to find a house that was isolated in the forest to give the viewer an experience of entering a special world.
Enjoy” - Tobias Wilner
Blue Foundation gonna play with SKEPTA and DRENGE next Monday at Knitting Factor, Brooklyn. Hope to see you!

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
EARMILK call Tobias Wilner’s new video for Sara Savery ‘Eyes Closed’ for stunning. Thank you so much! They just premiered it on their site. Enjoy!

“When I’m writing lyrics, I like to try to capture an image of a moment, as if briefly diving into a passage of a story. I was inspired by the whole chaotic and sensual vibe of Brooklyn. I guess the overall state of the lyric writing as well as the song writing comes from a sense of letting go, making changes and exploring the unknown. To me, ‘The Diver’ is a lot about that sensation of discovery. In a way, it’s also a reference to the creative process I’m in when making music. It’s about exploring the layers of ideas. Journeys of diving and re-emerging. I really hope the listeners will enjoy diving into my world.” – Sara Savery (Jay-Z Life+Times)
