Drömmer Du?

Drömmer Du?

Fastpoholmen͛ are now releasing their third full-length album,͞Are you dreaming?͟ on the Free Kids Records label. The first single on the album is ‘Your Light’, a beautiful airy track that combines a down-to-earth banjo with a bold, broad electric base and the hypnotic sensation ofgurgling and twirling water. Compared to the DMA-award winning folk/reggae-inspired double album ‘Andas In’ (2013) and ‘En Stund’(2010), ͞Are you dreaming?͟ shows a natural development in Fastpoholmen’s mode of expression. While the tracks have become shorter and sharper, the band has expanded their instrumental repertoire, so now there’s room for a Jew’s harp, synthesizers, calypso-keys and fuzz-guitar. At the same time, Adam Fastholm’s texts have become more introspective and wistful, and according to the frontman himself,’as you gets older, you doubt yourself more.’ On the other hand, Fastpoholmen’s fans get a much-needed insight into the man behind the lyrics, and the ever-changing soundscapes. And doubts are put to shame with the eleven songs on ͞Are you dreaming?͟ Adam and his cousin Dawn, with their stunningly beautiful vocal partnership, backed by their solid band, just get better from release to release. The album was produced by Thomas Fritsche and recorded in an improvised studio in Sceneriet, the basement stage of Copenhagen’s New Theatre
