In a beautiful but yet intense pop universe deeply rooted in a Grundtvig-songbook and a handful of synthesizers from the 80s, is Jærv to be found. On October 14 and November 11, she released her latest single ‘I Staver’ and ‘Falder’ respectively.
Two gems from the forthcoming EP, which is scheduled for release in the spring of 2016. First release ‘I Staver’ is a track that makes it clear, especially to us from the Zapper-generation, that daydreaming and zooming out definitely is alright. Maybe we don’t need all our tech-devices to use up all our focus at all times?
Between a dreamy and a club-ish pop universe lives Jærv. The lyrics are elegantly presented and nicely supported by several musical layers. Both the melodies and accord progressions have a flash glimpse of a Grundtvig-songbook that seems perfectly spot-on, regarding the atmosphere wherein the lyrics have been written! The music production is way above any standard pre-sets or easy-accessible tools, which otherwise would have choked out the neatness of the songs. A massive and intense sub-synth gives Jærv a great forward feel and a clubby setting to move around in.
Amanda Glindvad acts as the songwriter and leading figure in Jærv, but live she is accompanied by Malte Aarup-Sørensen, Kasper Nyhus, Mathias Pedersen Smidt and Jacob Nymark Brøndlund; whereas the last three also work as the producers and have designed the overall musical layout.
Jærv was quickly picked up by the local Aarhus management Over & Aude, and as we speak they have now got seven gigs on their tour plan for this fall, whereto the last six are as support for Rasmus Walter, which includes a sold out Store VEGA and Train.
