Danish artist, Theo X, is no longer what he calls Copenhagen’s “dirty little secret”. The success of his first two self-released singles, ‘Junkie Lover’, and ‘Hey Chico’, saw him perform on Danish national TV and, somewhat surprisingly, in front of the Danish Royal family - a defining moment in the career of a proudly out LGBTQ+ pop activist who recently headlined his capital’s Pride event.
‘You Don’t Wanna Dance’ continues to explore Theo’s take on electronic pop; strongly influenced by 1980’s disco, the song represents what he calls: “confidence - one long walk down the street – where you feel fit as f**k, 10 would bang, and when you feel everyone’s eyes on you”. Released on his own label, Glam Pop (distributed by Believe Digital), early support has come from BBC Radio in the UK.
A multi-talented artist, Theo X writes his own songs, creates his artwork, produces his music videos – including the powerful promo for this release – and works with some of Copenhagen’s finest producers to bring what he calls ‘glam pop’ to life. His lyrics consciously lean towards the male gaze, and with ‘You Don’t Wanna Dance’ he subverts the classic boy wants girls trope, and replaces it with boy wants boy.
