OUT: Reece Lemonius releases first EP 'Midnight'

Lost and found between dusk and dawn… Reece Lemonius´ 'Midnight' EP is a look into the past with a nostalgic yet vibrant modern twist. He incorporates elements of alternative R&B, Funk, Soul and Melancholic Pop of days gone by.

Fading into the soundtrack of his own self-reflection, tech-noire phantasies and heartbreak scenarios… for a time that never was…

Like a summer night ride after watching 'The lost boys' at the Drive-in. Fueled with 80s synth spheres and classic guitars coming through the car speakers. Reece Lemonius hits the gas pedal with you in the passenger seat, singing you his poems with the volume of the radio cranked up while a robot with a sweet vocoder voice is whispering from the back seat.

Navigated by his soulful voice and guided by timeless and illusionary melodies you can let loose and enjoy the ride through this six and a half track creation… close your eyes, so you don't miss a single heartbeat of this very moment…

'Midnight' - a never-ending new beginning... out since June the 5th.

Listen to it on Spotify.

OUT: New video to 'TEN GRAND GOLDIE' by Einstürzende Neubauten

Einstürzende Neubauten released their new single 'Ten Grand Goldie' on April the 3rd and announced their long-awaited album in twelve years. 'Alles in Allem' will be out on May the 15th this year and celebrates the 40th anniversary of the band.

The video to their latest single 'Ten Grand Goldie' is out today at 3 p.m. CET. Have a look and a listen here.

For the first single 'Ten Grand Goldie', Blixa Bargeld put out a call live on camera to worldwide supporters, using telecommunications to talk with people in Norway, Italy, and the USA. “Which word in your language do you especially like? What was the last snippet of a sentence you overheard coming out of someone else’s mouth, whether or not the meaning was clear, or if the words were addressed to you?” The result is a song that pre-formulated the album epilogically, in which Bargeld’s text fragments and the callers’ answers got woven into a narrative. And so, “Ten Grand Goldie” enchantingly combines reflections on a city in transition with words borrowed from foreigners. Bargeld calls this process “harvesting.” He picks various things together and reprocesses them.

Go check out Einstürzende Neubauten and their entire back-catalogue on Spotify.

OUT: Danish punk rock band Iceage release 'Lockdown Blues'

Copenhagen-based band Iceage releases a rousing new single, 'Lockdown Blues' (watch the video here). The track, which addresses the troubled new reality during COVID-19, was written in the wake of the lockdown on gatherings, borders, schools, and life as we know it. Over percussive, bluesy instrumentation, singer Elias Rønnenfelt bluntly describes “Empty shelves in barren streets // Confined domestic quarantine // How the itching for lost touch is deafening.”

All profits from Bandcamp will directly benefit Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders). Thus the band released a statement alongside the new track: “We’ve felt the urge to touch base now that the physical touch has been suspended and contribute an effort to raise spirit In the face of adversity. Our thoughts are with all those in jeopardy to the many various horrors in relation to the crisis, those situated on the front lines and those who are direly compromised. Stay safe, take care and keep up the good fight." and those who are direly compromised. Stay safe, take care and keep up the good fight."

new signing: Jacob Bellens

The Copenhagen-based artist just dropped his 5th studio album via hfn music!

Thanks to his unique voice and his talent for heart-rending melodies, over the years Jacob has become one of the most distinctive figures on the Scandinavian music scene.

Jacob Bellens has been releasing music since 2004, beginning with the debut album 'Scandinavian South' from electronic sample-based outfit Livstrompet. In the following years, he released three albums with the duo project Murder and has collaborated with several different artists such as Kasper Bjørke and AV AV AV and also composes for other musicians.

'The Daisy Age', Bellens’ solo debut album, was released in 2012. The second release was 'My Convictions', a personal take on classical vintage pop with flutes, strings and horns, produced by Frederik Thaae and released in 2014 through Bellens’ own label A Spot In The Sun. His third solo album 'Polyester Skin' was released in 2016 through hfn music and includes one of his biggest hits: Untouchable. 'Trail Of Intuition', produced by Rune Borup and Lars Iversen, came out in 2018 and is now followed by Jabob Bellens' fifth studio album 'My Heart Is Hungry And The Days Go By So Quickly' released in April 2020.

Somewhere between left-field pop and a classical singer/songwriter approach, the 'My Heart Is Hungry And The Days Go By So Quickly' is an exciting rollercoaster ride through the universe of an exceptional singer and songwriter. It’s made to make you dance, to sing along and at times to make you think, always with an encouraging undertone.

Out since April 3rd via hfn nusic.
