It always surprises you how Copenhagen four-piece, Communions, manage to serve you poppish and creamy sounds with a move-out-of-our-way attitude. The band – previous member of our Class of 2015 – has unveiled their new single ‘Come On, I’m Waiting’, and it comes with a video. It is uplifting, especially in the morning, and suits perfectly with a cup of coffee. Apparently, I’m not the only one who thinks that, as some of the most influential magazines already love these Copenhagen youngsters. However, with the release of their latest single and video, from their forthcoming debut album, it seems, the band seeks even bigger venues, more publicity and greener pastures – and they deserve just that.
Only weeks ago, Communions unveiled the fact, that their debut album ‘Blue’ will hit the shelves on February 3. 2017 – via Fat Possum Records. In connection with that, they went all Oasis with the release of a new track called ‘Got To Be Free’ – featured below. Today, they unveiled their next single from the forthcoming ‘Blue’ album; A single called ‘Come On, I’m Waiting’, which comes with a video.
“Musically ’Come On, I’m Waiting’ is the best example of where we are as a band right now. The song isn’t really based on a concrete story or narrative, but is more impressionistic. The song embodies both a feeling of anxiety and claustrophobia and one of freedom and liberation, and kind of balances between those two states of mind. The video incorporates some shots of our friend Joe Skilton, who was the one that took the photo that made it on to our album cover.”
Again, the Danish equivalent to British Oasis are here to stay.
