Boho Dancer - New Music "Introducing"


I came across Danish trio Boho Dancer looking through the line-up to a little folk festival that is taking place not too far away from me in a couple of weeks time - Folkstock at Aldenham Country Park on September 21st (I'm not sure I can make it though) - part of the line-up are the exquisite Sophie Jamieson, Josienne Clark & Ben Walker and Worry Dolls so it promises to be a lovely day (helped if autumn holds out no doubt), I'll concentrate on the new discovery now...

Taken from their recently released debut Gemini are two intoxicating previews, "Like Rain" gently weaves together an atmospheric tapestry of beautiful harmonies and finger picked melody, enchanting and haunting in equal measure whilst the darker "Bohemian Child" begins with Gothic like chants before Ida Wenøe's striking, emotive vocals and rich instrumentation combine to captivate the listener fully.

What starts off as a beautiful if straight-froward cover of Arcade Fire's "My Body is a Cage" bursts into life half way with expansive beats and deep bass-line, creeping up on you in an eerie yet undeniably gorgeous way. Their album is available now via Rough Trade with a host of gigs arranged for the week in the UK - dates on their Facebook.
