As you might remember the debut album “Ghost River” of the Danish Dream Pop duo BlackieBlueBird was released end of last year and has since received fantastic reviews. After their first concerts the band decided to release a cover version of “Oh Susanna” written by Stephen Foster in 1847, which is considered to be the very first global “pop hit”. It is a song well-known in numerous versions with varying lyrics that opted to eliminate the racially offensive language of the original.
BlackieBlueBird has recorded their own version, elevating “Oh Susanna” to the dreamy and feverish song it always deserved to be known as. You can find the download or stream of the song at Bandcamp(1), Spotify(2), iTunes(3), Soundcloud(4) and many more digital services.
On 19th of April we will release “Mr. Hyde”, the first single from the upcoming album „Mitt i Bilden“ by Emerald Park singer Tobias Borelius’ solo project Silvermannen.
Tobias has been working with the producer Carl Granberg (Bob Hund, Tingsek, Danko Jones and many more). The last two years Carl has also been working with Råå, a drone project created by Magnus Svenningsson of Cardigans. This might not be heard on “Mr. Hyde” but most definitely on the upcoming album. “Mr. Hyde” has a more upbeat and joyful sound, which, combined with the dark, personal and violent lyrics. creates a somewhat frightening combination.
“Silvermannen moves slowly and silently through a harsh but beautiful soundscape where present and past do not exist. He listens and observes the surroundings, but does not bring anyone to justice. No super powers, no rock, no arch enemy, just a big heart:”
The stream of the single is available now at Bandcamp(1) and Soundcloud(2).
