Quadron: Day + Ex-Factor
Like their fellow Danes The Raveonettes, Quadron decided to relocate to the U.S. in order to further their careers. Producer/musician/songwriter Robin Hannibal took off for Los Angeles two years ago, vocalist/songwriter Coco followed last September, and the move has already paid off. Although they have been part of L.A. based Plug Research's roster for a few years, the duo was recently signed to the label of their idol Michael Jackson: Epic Records will release the long-awaited follow up to their 2009 self-titled debut in early 2013.
Two interviews with Coco and Robin were published recently: one in English, one in Danish:
Prince, Adele, Jay-Z, Odd Future, and Kendrick Lamar are all big fans, and it's a safe bet that Michael Jackson would have become a fan after listening to Quadron's exquisite cover of "Baby Be Mine":
The most recent videos from Quadron were uploaded to the web in February: "Day" was shot in the Caribbean by Eddie Klint and Jenna Mangulad. Coco's cover of Lauryn Hill's "Ex-Factor" was filmed during a tour break in Vienna; it features her regular live show bandmates August Rosenbaum on omnichord/vocals and Mads Forsby on hand percussion/vocals.
