Imitating Aeroplanes – Hourglass

You may never have heard of Imitating Aeroplanes, but it actually is a supergroup. A superduo, to be precise, consisting of The Wombats’s Tord Øverland Knudsen and Team Me’s Marius DrogsΓ₯s Hagen. They are childhood friends and grew up together in the Norwegian town of Elverum.

On 22 September the pair will release their debut album as Imitating Aeroplanes, titled Planet Language. β€œThe whole idea of this album was to do things we haven’t done before, and things that we couldn’t do in our existingΒ projects,” Knudsen explains.

Hourglass is the long player’s lead single. The song is inspired by Japanese folklore character Urashima Tarō, a fisherman who went to visit the underwater palace of RyΕ«jin and returned to his village to find himself 300 years in the future. Hagen adds: β€œThe lyric is kinda dark, but it’s optimistic in the sense ofΒ just living in the now, andΒ always looking forward, and making the most of this small fragment of time that we have.”
