Over the last few years Petterson has been busy writing songs for the full length debut "In The Pink". He has recorded them in collaboration with his friend, producer and drummer Mads Andersen and a variety of studio musicians.
Stylistically, "In The Pink" is a release that explores all aspects of popular music, where the thread is Petterson's ability to use and renew the musical genres. Funky 70s-inspired piano-rock mixed with slacker songs, Altmodisch dance music, classic singer-songwriter and stately ballads.
Petterson finds inspiration from the Beach Boys, Beck, Jim O'Rourke, Henry Mancini, Van Dyke Parks and Jackson 5! Mozart's saying that "the text must be the obedient daughter of music" applies here in reverse! With original lyrics and bold use of genres, there is not anything like Petterson's music in Denmark at the moment - or the world for that matter?
