‘Dead Drop Love’ is the new single/ep/movie package from Norwegian artist Simeon Kirkegaard. The track is an upbeat espionage-themed song using the metaphor of the ‘dead drop’ to say you don’t always know who you love.
Single Out January 26th
The track is written by Simeon Kirkegaard and his collaborator Feileacán McCormick and features over 70 musicians, including the BRNO Philharmonic with orchestral arrangement by Fiachra Trench and lead vocals by Norwegian singer Tonye. The track is produced by Simeon Kirkegaard and co-produced by Alwyn Walker at Westland studios, mixed by Cenzo Townshend at Decoy Studios and mastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road Studios.
The music is accompanied by a dark comedic, musical short film based upon the classic spy movie trope. Simeon Kirkegaard plays the main character of the slightly “rough around the edges” agent Blue who is trying to stop the villainous ‘Dr. Calamari’ from creating an evil, nuclear seafood empire. With references to older James Bond movies and a light dusting of Sin City, the intention has been to create a small “briefcase of espionage” when combined with the music; through the listening experience of the single or by watching the short film scored by the single and its interludes. The film was written and directed by Crooked Gentlemen and had it’s premiere at Notodden Kino in Norway on thursday, february 8th 2018.
Agent Blue, how kind of you to join us!
