Sonder Lerche - "Domino"

Sondre Lerche at Mercury Lounge last summer, from the HAD Archive

We'll confess: we love Sondre Lerche. With his charming manner and killer pipes, the Norwegian singer songwriter falls handily into the "can do no wrong" side of things. Given that, we were stoked to hear that he has a new self titled record on tap for June 7th.

The first track from the new record has been a Lerche live staple for a while now, and it's great to finally hear "Domino" in its studio form. The production is reminiscent of Lerche's first record, and that's certainly not a bad thing. He's often at his best when in singer songwriter mode, and this case is no exception: "Domino" is half Bond theme, half classic Lerche. In other words: awesome.
