Jeppe Breum Laursen is a Danish singer-songwriter and producer. Performing under the name "Senior", Laursen was the lead vocalist of the pop duo Junior Senior. In 2008, British magazine Dazed & Confused praised Laursen's music for its "urgency and club appeal" and described it as "industrial synth-pop and bone-rattling drama".[1] Laursen is currently working on his debut solo album.[when?][citation needed] His first solo release was a collaboration with American electronic music duo Classixx entitled "I'll Get You", which was released in 2009 on Kitsuné. Laursen also remixed "Off Our Backs" by American electropop band MEN in 2010.[2]
