Danish “Røgsignal” (Smoke Signal) have created their very own instrumental universe in a clash of pulsating indie beats and shimmering soundscapes. The songs are equally inspired by modern indie rock and a homesickness towards the deserted roads of rural Denmark. The biggest, Danish music magazine, GAFFA, describes how “there is both longing and melancholy to the overall impression and expression. Something dreamy and unexplainable. Beautiful and soothing.”
The release of the bands debut album, “Pletter På Solen” (“Sun Spots”, 2016) resulted in great attention in the band's home country: Packed concerts at the largest, Danish jazz festivals and venues, raving reviews and steady rotation on Danish National Radio.
Since then, the band has been touring all over Denmark, while also releasing two music videos to accompany the album. Simultaneously a lot of ideas and inspirations have been merging into new music, where the first single “1977” received lots of international attention and ended up on the official “Fresh Finds: Six Strings” Spotify playlist with 30k+ followers. Two new singles; “answers.” and “nobody” were recently released and together they mark the first steps into a richer, experimental soundscape.
The new music is produced by Anders Boll (Lowly, Efterklang m.fl.), who has been working closely with the band on finishing the new album “Bodies”, that will be out on the 10th of May 2019.
”In total, Røgsignal offers stylish and imaginative compositions, a tight and
distinguished interplay, indeed, a sound that's just lovely to be in the company of.”
