Blaue Blume

Music / Indie, Pop / Copenhagen, Denmark

Where the darkness is deepest, light shines all the brighter - on their last album "Bell of Wool", the trio Blaue Blume explored this adage in all its meaning following singer Jonas Smith’s fall into depression that lasted several years and almost broke the project. But as with so many great artists, it was true here too: Personal downturns, the pain of life and their overcoming can sometimes be the greatest inspiration, whether for a single person or the whole band. The four Danes have since been endowing indulgent art pop elegies of searching and longing with a melodic sophistication that has become a rarity in our streaming era that constantly strives for new trends. Smith's falsetto, reminiscent of Anohni in parts, the electrifying arrangements of shimmering synthesisers, detail-loving drums and ghostly guitars, the mystical tenor – all this will embrace your soul and carry it far away from this world and its worldly worries. It’s the soothing musical balm that we all so desperately need after the last two years and which we’ll now finally be allowed to enjoy live.
