In 1977 the legendary harmonica man Billy Boy Arnold and the brute thundering Groundhogs recorded a record on which they particularly emphasized their individual style characteristics.
At the end of the nineties there was a wave of soft music, which could be commonly defined as folkpop and which was represented by British bands like Travis or Turin Brakes. Around the turn of the millennium, this wave spread to Scandinavia and produced a series of wonderful, but unfortunately hardly noticed records: The early works of Christian Kjellvander or Saybia unfortunately never had the success they deserved. But Dangers Of The Sea from Denmark have now come out to straighten that out. After all, keyboard player Jess Jensen is a former Saybia member on board, along with Frederik Teige, the guitarist of the highly acclaimed Efterklang. Together with singer Andreas Bay Estrup, Dangers Of The Sea create a melodious folk universe where vocals, instrumentation, arrangements and lyrics form a whole. The result is an album that proves that a great song stands and falls with the melody. And there's a lot of them here. A wonderful album for dreamy hours among nostalgic Travis fans.
