Jeppe Breum Laursen is a Danish singer-songwriter and producer. Performing under the name "Senior," Jeppe was the lead vocalist for the dance-rock band Junior Senior. Dazed and Confused praised Jeppe's music for its "urgency and club appeal" and described it as "industrial synth-pop and bone-rattling drama."[1] Jeppe is currently working on his debut solo album. His first solo release was a collaboration with Classixx entitled "I'll Get You" which was released in 2009 on Kitsuné. Laursen also remixed MEN in 2010.[2]
