Retro Kid is back, with the first single from his debut album ’Nordic Noir’. ‘Nordic Noir’ shares electronic producer Jake Juba’s first hand experiences of nightlife as a “Copenhagener” . The album is laid out like an audible metro line and the first stop is ’Neon Colours’. Jake’s journey is shared with Danish vocalists Christiane and Christian, just to add a touch of authenticity to the concept.

‘Neon Colours’ is a song about Jake’s favourite smokey bodega / pub in Copenhagen called Cafe Malmö. A basement bar often filled with crazy characters and a cracking old duke box that blares out the likes of the doors and fleetwood mac. Unfortunately, times are changing and the old fruitful barflies have gone. What remains is the hipster youth preaching about how nostalgic they feel when listening to songs older than they are.
