"Candy Tongue" is the second teaser single taken of Trentemøller's late September-scheduled album "Lost" and on a totally different tip than it's predecessor "Never Stop Running". Starting with a long, Lynch'esque intro and what can be also imagined as ecclesiastic, solemn church organ hook and the fragile, PostWave-flavored vocals of Trentemøller's long-time vocal backup Marie Fisker which unveals nearly Siouxsie Sioux-like qualities here on top dense musical structure of growing intensity "Candy Tongue" is not only a simple song - it's a whole lifetimes story condensed into less than 5 minutes and told in a gravel, ceremonial matter that is way beyond any kind of Pop attitude and filled with sorrow. Or despair. Excellent work from the center of Copenhagen.
