From nearly the most southern part of Jutland, here’s Tusindfald. Two boys and two girls, all from Haderslev. It’s Vocals, bass, backing vocals, more vocals, guitar and some synths. Spice it up with some songwriting and production from founder Jesper Lundager, and there you go – that’s Tusindfald!
Oh wait, there’s more: it is lovely dreamy pop-music. You know, that kind of music that takes your mind completely off of things, you sink slightly deeper into your chair, and your school assignment is written much faster and with way more concentration.
Their EP ‘Kys’ reminds me of some of the best things from the music year 2013: the dreamy universe and the psychedelic revival. Two things that are brought into all sorts of musical genres, whether it’s rock or pop doesn’t really matter here.
The EP itself contains three brilliantly constructed pop songs, with the title track ‘Kys’ as the opening song. This is, without a doubt, a great song. The great and dreamy beat is beautifully combined with the raw (yet calm) vocal, that brings this sense of melancholia. And after about a minute of this song, you’ll find yourself sitting awfully relaxed, you might even be instructing your own version of a music video (in your head that is) – with that being said, the original video doesn’t need improvement.
‘Solstrejf’ on the other hand, brings a more raw beat, with a clear guitar sound, and a much cleaner vocal arrangement – all this without leaving the dreamy universe behind. The digital EP finishes off with the instrumental ‘Under Overfladen’, a great peace of music. It’s quite comforting, and it, much like ‘Kys’, invites the listener to create a music video (again, in your head). You might even be picturing that favourite spot of yours?
To sum things up, these three songs paint a picture of a band that knows what they’re doing, who knows their sound, and judging from their video to ‘Kys’ – also knows their visual profile. Let’s start out with a 4/5 from Sound of Aarhus, and eagerly await a full length album!
