Danish band Communions recently revealed details of their debut album Blue, which will be released via Fat Possum Records on February 3rd. Today, Communions premiere a new video for “Come On, I’m Waiting,” directed by Lasse Dearman-directed.
Brothers Martin and Mads Rehof returned to their native Copenhagen after living in Seattle for a few years with their family, and in 2014 their high school friends Jacob van Deurs Formann and Frederik Lind Köppen joined them to make up Communions. The quartet came together at Copenhagen’s infamous venue-cum-rehearsal space, Mayhem, where they wilfully took chances with their music to see if they could arrive somewhere else. It was the band’s conviction that let them land here intact, and with a collection of songs that chart their journey.
Blue makes the most of everywhere Communions have been. And through all of this the stakes have changed, but the sensitivity and craft with which the band takes risks has bloomed. An eloquence now shines through, and you can take it or leave it. Discarding some of the moodiness found in their previous recordings, Blue tells us what was always natural to Communions. It’s about love, and taking chances, it’s about trying something, and it still doesn’t matter if there’s apprehension—it’s better when you’re too busy to notice.
Communions are: Martin Rehof (vocal and guitar), Mads Rehof (bass), Jacob van Deurs Formann (guitar) and Frederik Lind Köppen (drums).
