Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.
Martin Baltser is an indie-folk project based in Århus, Denmark. The music has grown from a few simple acoustic songs to something more daring and experimental these last few years. I try to let my love for lyrics, melodies, and men shine through and I am constantly inspired by the moving world and artists like Bon Iver and Sigur Rós.
Where did the new single come from?
My song ‘Call Me Wild’ is the story of a boy with all the possibilities in the world, and a school that tries to tear down this raw and wild potential by teaching ‘there-is-only-one-right- answer-to-everything’ policy. It was written one night visiting Berlin, looking back on my time at the school bench in my small hometown.
Back then I was one of those boys that had way too much energy and I could never really concentrate for more than a minute before I found myself jumping on my chair, drawing on the table, whispering to the others, or gazing out the window dreaming of running around in a muddy forest somewhere. The teacher would then tell me to sit still, stop drawing, shut up and stop looking out the window. So there I was, stuck with math that I honestly never used since then.
What other content is in the pipeline?
My first single is actually one in five songs that is going to be release during 2017. All songs are going to be about ‘masculinity’ in our modern society and will be accompanied by music videos. So there will be more music before you know it
What’s on the horizon for you?
Right now I have a lot going on! I am planning shows, upcoming releases and have quite a few ideas for some pretty awesome and breathtaking music videos that I just can’t wait to get working on.
