about

Hunter Complex is the moniker of Lars Meijer. On his self titled debut album he moves from synthpop to electro and from italo to new wave. Just like the European electronic acts The Tough Alliance, Neon Neon, JJ, M83 and Delorean, there's an imperative reference to the eighties in the music of Hunter Complex. Not only in the sound, but especially because of that intangible feeling. Meijer: 'It's a feeling that switches between whimsicality and melancholy. You can see that for example in Miami Vice - true television of the eighties: subtropical beaches, flamingos, but also nocturnal streets full of muggy evil.'

Around the turn of the century, under the name Larz, he created two lo-fi pop albums that reached a cult-status internationally. 'Call Larz another bedroom genius - which he is, but he's got that extra bit of special something about him', Allmusic.com said at the time. In the years after his Larz albums Meijer broadened himself in experimental electronic music with the groups Psychon and Living Ornaments. With the last act his also released music on the legendary Skam label. Meijer: 'After these experiments I thought it was time for pop music again. I've been walking around with the idea of this record full of synthpop songs for a long time, but in the last ten years I've finally learned how to actually produce it.'
