Mattias Kolstrupis may be recognized when he strolls along the streets of his native Denmark, but we’re here to introduce you to his thrilling solo project: Liberty. Heavily inspired by ‘70s rock and punk music, Liberty sets his sights unbelievably high to create memorable soundscapes, and he certainly delivers just that. Ahead of his forthcoming sophomore album, Moon Child Set on the Sun, Liberty is spoiling us with his electrifying new single, “The Last Time.”
Liberty is already at the forefront of Denmark’s electropop scene, but it’s about time he finds himself playing on airwaves around the world. After hiking to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro to reflect on a doomed relationship, Liberty penned the dancey track that is “The Last Time.” Between the jangly percussion and hopeful electronics, “The Last Time” gives more than enough reasons to add Liberty to your radar immediately.
On “The Last Time,” Liberty shared,
“I was pondering a relationship going to shit. So I went all the way to the Kilimanjaro Mountain in Tanzania; I had to get as far away and as close to the stars as possible. But of course, the further away I went, the more I thought of home and of her. When I reached the top, I met a strange old woman. She told me that I was a moon child set on the Sun and maybe, for once, I should just try to be where I was. Here, now. I heeded her advice and ‘The Last Time’ was written then and there.”
