♫ Vök – Muziekgieterij and Gebr. De Nobel

Vök is an Icelandic electronic/pop band with Margrét Rán as a vocalist and Andri Már on sax and keys. After being enchanted by their music for a year, I finally got the chance to see them live. Even twice! First in Muziekgieterij, Maastricht and the day after in Gebr. De Nobel in Leiden. Although Muziekgieterij…

♫ Broken Twin – The Aching

Nice and dark, the way I like my Scandinavian songs. In my opinion Broken Twin is of the best Danish bands from the last years. Considering a Danish festival (like Spot Festival) next year more and more. WARNING: do not listen before going to bed! It’s dripping from the ceilingIt’s everything I seeAnd that old sinking feelingIs…

♫ Lydmor & Bon Homme – Things We Do For Love

No need to explain my Lydmor love to anyone again I guess. But the project she has done with Bon Homme is just amazing. Her fragile, sweet voice in combination with his deep manly voice makes me melt. These two are lifting each other up. Instantly fell in love with this song. This is the…

♫ Rebekka Karijord – The Noble Art of Letting Go

Two years after posting this song by Rebekka Karijord for the first time, it still makes me cry instantly. If you look at her own emotions while singing it, it becomes even more moving. Usually I don’t listen to the lyrics but these seem to be written for me.. Oh, that luggage. It IS a…

♫ Vök – Waterfall

‘Breath in for the last time..’ It actually really feels that’s what I’m doing while listening to this hypnotic song, I forget to breath.. Too bad this feeling is not represented in the video, something dreamier would have suited me better. ‘Waterfall‘ is taken from Vök’s new EP ‘Circles‘. Vök was founded in 2013 and…

♫ Torgeir Waldemar – Streets

Probeer maar eens iets te schrijven wat deze plaat recht aan doet. Het lukt me niet. Kan niet stoppen met luisteren. De puurheid raakt me vol in m’n hart. Dit nummer in het bijzonder maar het hele debuutalbum van de Noorse Torgeir Waldemar is één grote parel. Wat een geniale artiest.Vrijdag 15 mei kun je…

♫ Darkness Falls – Dance And Cry

De Deense Josephine Philip en Ina Lindgreen die samen Darkness Falls vormen, komen op 30 maart met hun nieuwe plaat ‘Dance and Cry‘. Huilen moet ik er niet van, dansen ga ik er ook niet op. Maar man, wat is dat een fijne plaat. Ik ging even één liedje luisteren en kon de hele avond…
