The danish band Blaue Blume is maybe and one of the most dedicated and most elaborate pop bands we’ve met so far. And their music is maybe one of the most beautiful offerings you’ll find on blue vinyl these days. The four guys spend every spare minute with their music and following on from their debut album ‘Syzygy’ in 2015 a wonderful new EP entitled ‘Sobs’ is going to be released on 17.11.17.
Blaue Blume draw inspiration from the drama of The Smiths, the melodic structures of the Cocteau Twins, the complexity and dynamics of ‘The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway’ by Genesis, the sensual ‘danciness’ of Roxy Music and the fateful tenderness of Nina Simone – to name but a few.
The band explains: “Blaue Blume has been our band for about 6 years. In a bigger provincial town we started playing right out of highschool. At the moment we live in Copenhagen and every day we play, write and work on sounds. It’s sort of become a life project. In our heads we make music that is playful, rich in detail and popish or somewhat smiling. For some beautifully inexplicable reason we ended up doing music together. In a way it seems sacred or at least meaningful. Macabre is a happy song about being afraid of dying. Some of us find that even the best life can be lonely sometimes. We found it interesting to address this taboo within the frame of a song that people could potentially dance or sing along to.”
