The following is based on a true story: I listend to an EP and had some thoughts about it.
#6 – Communions
I think I read that this band is Danish. That makes sense somehow when the music starts. You can pretty much hear the tight black jeans, babyfaces, and perfectly kempt hair in the mix, from which I instantly assume that at leat one of these dudes is playing a telecaster. But I digress.
The Scandinavianness of this band also comes into play shortly after the first song’s intro, when the singing start. I am not sure what I expected, but it certainly wasn’t a mythical elf creature with great pitch crooning uncannily.
There’s a German adjective “gewöhnungsbedürtig” that means “needs getting used to,” and that is a great description for this voice. In fact, I am so hung up on the voice, I forget to pay attention to the rest of the music, and suddenly I’m at work wishing I had paid more attention to the telecasters. Oh well, there’s always next time!
TL;DR – Danes with guitars and distractingly elf-like vocals.
