NO ONE’S A ’FOREIGNER’ IN THE WORLD OF CLEAN OUT LOUIS (Press Release)



NO ONE’S A ’FOREIGNER’ IN THE WORLD OF CLEAN OUT LOUIS

The Copenhagen-based indie supergroup release their first ever single today, May 10th. ‘Foreigner’ is a wonky pop-gem merging catchy britpop-vibes with a funky reggae feel, welcoming Clean Out Louis to the aspiring Nordic scene!



Imagine yourself sitting by the desk on your first day of school and then, when the teacher calls out your full name in front of the entire class for the very first time, you realize you’ve been living a lie. That’s how it felt, when Sylvester Zabello found out his parents had kept his first name, Louis, a secret.

Tossed into an identity crisis of a puzzled 6-year-old, to this day, Sylvester still doesn’t go by Louis. Except for when he is with Mingus Runge.


Together they are Clean Out Louis ready to debut their wonky britpop inspired sounds with the release of ‘Foreigner’.


“It’s a song that sort of reminisces that anxious first day of school feeling. A moment of alienation – to your surroundings and to yourself. But to us, ‘Foreigner’ also represents redemption,” Sylvester says when speaking of the new single. Mingus continues:


“I recorded the drums and the bass, kind of imagining where the track was going. But when I played it to Sylvester, he immediately added a whole new unexplored energy to the song’s direction with his voice, eventually adding on the wobbly synths and a funky reggae feel coming out of nowhere, representing who we are as a creative team.”


Clean Out Louis is a Copenhagen-based indie supergroup. Despite their young age of 23, the two-piece has already been making their own waves: Sylvester as the guitarist of the alternative pop-act, Høker, while Mingus was the drummer of Bo Madsen of Mew’s widely renowned indie-kids orchestra, Turbolens.
