Wonderland.

Premiere: Dinner on the West Coast

Ahead of his European tour dates, this mini documentary follows Danish artist Dinner (a.k.a. Anders Rhedin) on his West Coast travels with Mac Demarco.

Dinner has been listed amongst the Danish artists that you need to know right now. His tracks are filled with retro electronic beats, airy musings and Anders’ captivating barritone vocals. His sound was described to Wonderland as what you might find on “a sun-bleached cassette-tape you find stuck behind your car’s dashboard that was last played at a party in Dusseldorf in 1984… full of echoes of sweaty depressions, spirituals longings, and early morning trances.”

The tour-documentary was shot by Danish filmmaker Frederik Sølberg and is a compilation of imagery from Dinner’s West Coast tour. Dinner narrates the film, talking about supporting Mac, the simple beauty he finds in life on the road and his goal as a performer to “enhance the ritualistic aspect of a modern concert.” We’re not quite sure if Dinner is as serious and monotone as he appears but there’s a charm about it regardless, he sounds eternally bored but every word he says is interesting. Another plus, you get to see the adorable Mac Demarco in a delightful set of camouflage dungarees.

The documentary also features exclusive audio previews from his upcoming record which will be arriving early next year. The European tour kicked off yesterday in Bristol.

Dinner plays at London’s Roundhouse tonight, Birmingham’s Institute tomorrow and heads out across Europe throughout September.
