Album artwork for Armlock by School of X

School of X, aka Rasmus Littauer, with his self-produced debut album Armlock following his acclaimed EPs Destiny (2019) and Faded. Dream. (2017). On Armlock Mø’s drummer and musical director refines his emotional indie pop into an adventurous sound that resonates with indie aficionados and wider audiences alike.

School of X is on a creative roll at the moment: In November 2019 the EP Destiny was released – a collection of very personal and intimate songs. Earlier this year artists like Trentemøller, Vera, Varnrable, and more, reimagined the songs taken from Destiny on Interpretations of Destiny. While all this was going on, Rasmus was recording and producing his debut LP Armlock.

“They’re definitely love songs. But they’re about moving on (together or separately), maturing from the experience, and actually ending up in a better place,” says Rasmus Littauer about the overarching theme on his new album and moves on to talking about how the record came to life. “This time I’ve included other artists in both the recording and writing process which has been so good for me and my own process. I’ve always been collaborating with lots of artists, as a session musician, co-writer or in other bands. But I honestly also have issues with not being in control why School of X has been less collaborative historically. But with Armlock I found it so fulfilling to have my friends and colleagues record and pitch in with creative ideas that I could filter, adapt, refine, and merge with songs on my own”

As a result of the collaborative approach described above, artists like Spencer Zahn, Yangze, Ary, Vera, Trentemøller, Lord Siva, and more have contributed to Armlock.
