Danish artists Nanome is about to put out her debut album and you better watch out (not only for misled lady bikers around town)!
Your humble narrator just moved here, but so far I have already learned that there are at least two things the Danes deeply care about. And those two things are (indisputably) bikes and (if you have ever heard a Dane talk about NemID and other bureaucratic shenanigans) technology. Hence, hooray for Danish culture and the artist that combines these two Danish peculiarities: nanome.
She says herself that she gets her ideas for lyrics when she is biking – and then needs to record them straight away. Which is why she either records them on her iPhone right on her bike or – in the magical times before voice memos and iPhones – would just call herself and leave the lyrics as a voice mail. And even though I do wonder how she can possibly still be alive in a city like Aarhus, I am very happy she is – and that she is still making music.
After all, there seems to be something about means of transportation that appeal to nanome’s creativity. A first sound snippet from the song “Hurtig Klade I Tog” (if you can trust the English – Danish translation: “Fast Draft on Train”) that came into being on one of her trips between Aarhus and Copenhagen rises high expectations on the upcoming album: 64 seconds of bliss and well-thought out electronic beats. Although nanome has already announced that she would leave the perfectionistsound of her very well received debut EP behind – “Hurtig Klade I Tog” seems so perfect, so well-constructed in the best sense that one can only hope the album will keep up.
nanome – “Everything That Moves” will be released on September 9.
