Broken Twin - New Music "Introducing"

Facebook /

For the second consecutive year I'll be heading to the wonderful End of the Road festival at the end of August, when I did my Introducing post on The Graphite Set last week I posted about the first discovery made from looking (only briefly so far) at its wonderful line up (of course, I hardly need introduction to Caitlin Rose, Savages, Pins, Daughter, Warpaint, Widowspeak and many more of the wonderful artists also on the line-up), here's the second; Broken Twin, the nom de plume of Copenhagen's Majke Voss Romme who recently released her debut four track EP Holding On To Nothing (available on 10" vinyl via Broken Records).

I’ve timed this post extremely badly as summer finally takes over, this is EP you’ll want to savour when you’re alone with the outside world blocked out of view. The sparse, uncluttered instrumentation, little more than gentle acoustic and piano chords, of the opening track “Beaches” instantly send shivers down your spine as you are introduced to the beguiling tone of Majke’s pure, fragile vocals, wrapping you in a calming yet melancholic state of beauty.

“Float” combines subtle electronic nuances and strings to piano and similarly strike hard while “Out Of Air” is perhaps the most affecting of all, intimate doesn’t even come close, here her vocals are delivered with such anguish that it’s bound to move even the sternest of souls. Heart-wrenching yet gorgeous – End of the Road, you certainly have the line-up of the summer.
