That’s exactly where the members of Danish group I Just Came From The Moon headed to record their second album.
A couple of extended weekends on the small island of Fur (in the Danish province of Jutland), with a single engineer as company, laid the foundations for their release, Ånd Ud (out Feb 25th, April Records).
It’s a more pensive, mature record; a coming-of-age story that waves farewell to a carefree youth in music. But, as bandleader and bassist Frederik explains, “it’s mixed with a profound serenity when realizing that what lies ahead might be even better.”
The music was created, recorded, mixed and, ultimately, produced by the band members themselves.
“The songs are really personal, and we were absolutely sure how we needed them to sound” says Tobias, who plays drums and mixed most of the music.
Soaring trumpet and shimmering reeds sit on top of a post-rock inspired rhythm section and hypnotic guitar riffs.
In a time where most people have likely considered life beyond our pandemic-stricken planet, I Came From The Moon gives a timely reminder of the beauty of life (and jazz) on earth.
