About the Album

Aarhus based Røgsignal (Smoke Signal) is busy at the moment. Just as the band had isolated themselves around the last details for the upcoming album “Bodies”, they were invited to the legendary Round Tower in Copenhagen to do a live set on national radio. Henrik Palle of Politiken, one of Denmarks biggest newspapers, wrote an ecstatic review, calling it a “convincing demonstration that young, Danish jazz is neither dead, smells funny or in any way lagging”. On Friday the 7th of December it all culminated with the release of the new single “answers”. Just like its predecessor “1977” it points towards a more modern and experimental vibe. Where Røgsignals 2016 debut album “Pletter På Solen” (Sun Spots) captured the live sound of the four musicians, the new music clearly illustrates that post production is playing a much larger part in the bands aesthetics now. “answers.” has an almost contradictory opening with a cryptic double bass setting the mood, before a universe of pulsating synth bass and simple, redeeming melodies reveals itself. The title promises answers, but says nothing about what it’s answering. The upcoming album is produced and mixed in collaboration with Anders Boll (Lowly, Efterklang etc.) at Lydhavnen in Aarhus and mastered by E.T. Mastering. The music is released through the bands own label: “Danish Desert Records” and the entire album will be out in the spring of 2019.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
