Bisse – Jul i Aleppo (2016)

image-3

Vi holder jul i Aleppo
under ruinerne
Mor sir at vi ikke ka slippe ud
snigskytterne tog min onkel
vi må ik lege under åben himmel
det er alt for farligt
vi er så sårbare
Far er gået ud for at finde mad
men han kom ikke hjem i går

:jeg ønsker mig ingen julegaver i år:
jeg ønsker bare at Far
skal komme hjem til os

vi holder jul i Aleppo
ikke langt fra Betlehem
min søster elsker Justin Bieber
men Justin og Jesus har forladt byen
min storebror må trøste min mor
men jeg ved at Mor først vil blive rigtigt glad
når Far er kommet hjem og
han ka fortælle at der er sluttet fred

jeg ønsker mig ingen julemand i år
jeg ønsker mig ingen julegaver i år
jeg ønsker mig ingen julemand i år
jeg ønsker bare at Far
skal komme hjem til os

The Bowdashes – Copenhagen Goldrush (2016)

EXCLUSIVE NEWMUSIC.DK PREMIERE!

Out of gloomy Copenhagen with a thundering, yet romantic sound of frontier Dodge City covered in neon lights, come The Bowdashes.

While The Bowdashes is still a new project, the members are clearly not new to the stage or to each other. In previous projects, Linn Holm and Nana Nørgaard have worked with Gordon Gano(Violent Femmes), German production duo Ancient Astronauts, as well as French Bossa Nova heroes Nouvelle Vague, and have also had an album selected for La sélection FIP.

In collaboration with Jean von Baden (DJ/Producer) and Mads ‘Mashti’ Nordheim (of legendary Danish punk bands ADS and Before), the duo has discovered their dark sound of rock and folk-wave incorporating insistent drums, deep bass drones and raspy western guitars.

Their first single “Copenhagen Goldrush” is set for release the 6th of June 2016 on This Recording Company.

The single is featuring prominent danish and international artists such as Steen Jørgensen (SortSol), Stine Hjelm Jacobsen (Electric Lady Lab), Jonas Wetterslev (The Entrepeneurs), Nick Lee (Ulige Numre) and Dave Smoota Smith (TV On The Radio).

Chinah – Colder (2016)

Danish synth-R&B trio Chinah gave us a handful of great tracks last year, “Away From Me,” “We Go Back,” and “Minds” among them. They’ll release an EP called Once The Lights Are On later this week, and today they’ve previewed it with the release of another quality track. An abundance of slinky, rolling keyboard riffs renders “Colder” an instant standout, but Fine Glindvad’s gentle, crystalline vocal delivery remains impressive as well.
