The New Spring is the solo nom de plume of Mr. Bastian Kallesøe. After collecting quieter acoustic numbers that just didn’t suit his noisier former band, Shout Wellington Airforce, he released a self-titled debut album in 2011. People loved The New Spring – and what’s not to love? His sensitive and original songwriting backed by delicate acoustic guitar is a perfect match. It’s easy for indie/folk to get soppy and dreary however just like his name suggests, The New Spring is a re-awakening of time-tested troubadour format. Every time I’ve seen this guy it makes me almost cringe how frigging great he is.
His show for Spot is Sunday 16:30 at øst for paradis – the perfect setting to wipe that hangover away in the nice cool cinema.
