“Oblique Thrills” is a slight departure from the “normal” Röyksopp-catalogue. The track came about in February earlier this year. Whilst recording parts for a completely different song, we learned that the great Lyle Mays had passed. Consequently, we decided to embark on a “fusion-esque” venture as a nod to Mr. Mays, but in a Röyksopp manner. Our good friends Ole Vegard Skauge (bass), Jørn Øien (piano & Prophet) & Ivar Thormodsæter (acoustic drums) also took part in the journey.
