Blue Foundation's cinematic dream pop and shoegaze-tinged electronics are known for being featured in films like Twilight and on TV shows like CSI: Miami.
Danish singer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Tobias Wilner founded the group in 2000, inspired by Mark E. Smith's approach to forming a band (the Fall), recruiting a rotating cast of traditional musicians throughout the band's history to inspire creativity, but keeping multi-instrumentalist Bo Rande a constant since 2008. Debut single Hollywood & Hide arrived on the Moshi Moshi label in 2000, followed by a self-titled debut album for April Records a year later, and a busy stream of singles, albums, remixes, compilation appearances, and soundtrack contributions were released thereafter. Aside from Twilight, Blue Foundation's music was featured on the Miami Vice soundtrack as well as in European films Tankograd, Normal, and Manslaughter, and outside of CSI: Miami the band has been heard on the small screen's So You Think You Can Dance, The O.C., The Cleveland Show, and Anna Pihl. In 2009, Wilner started DPC Records in Copenhagen as a vehicle for releases by Blue Foundation and side projects Bichi and Ghost Society. Blue Foundation also reached a wider audience thanks to collaborations with Mark Kozelek (Red House Painters, Sun Kil Moon) and Jonas Bjerre (Mew) on the 2009 single Watch You Sleeping and in remixing Bjerre's "Window Pane," respectively. ~ Chrysta Cherrie, Rovi
