Why This Album Is So Great:

"Frengers" is a magical combination of delicate pop songs and atmospheric soundscapes, best illustrated by the brilliant closer "Comforting Sounds". The music is heavily influenced by British shoegazer indie rock but somehow also has a very Scandinavian feel. The very soft and bright lead vocal sets a special tone and works wonders next to the sonic variation between walls of guitar noise and peaceful moments of almost silence. It's very much an album you listen to and let yourself be swept away in rather than the album you put on for a night out. But in this very fact is also the album's strenght: It's one of those albums you can use to fill up on mental and emotional fuel.Definitely one of the best albums to come out of Denmark - ever!

Overall Rating (on a scale from 1 to 10): 9
