Ragazzi by Cancer out in the Nordics

Ragazzi by Cancer out in the Nordics

The short version: Cancer is a duo consisting of When Saints Go Machine lead singer/producer Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild and Chorus Grant lead singer/guitarist Kristian Finne Kristensen. Today their debut is released across the Nordics. 6 songs stretching across roughly 30 minutes.

We've been moved by these wonderful songs for almost two years since we got the first demos from Nikolaj & Kristian. It's been such a joy watching the two buddies develop their musical friendship, play some of the best concerts we've ever seen - and finally the recordings and production of Ragazzi during the last months have morphed the minimalistic demos we got back in the day into some very, very beautiful and special.

Nis Bysted of Thulebasen (that band is m....f...ng genious too) has produced Ragazzi. Shout outs to him! Also worthy of praise is the rhythm section of Moogie Johnson & Tobias 'Tex' Lange - also playing for Chorus Grant these two guys are the Mitchell/Reddings of 2014

“Danish duo Cancer are here to craft something pretty. With Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild of When Saints Go Machine at the helm, the pair make delicate music that shimmers.” Pigeons & Planes (US)

“Same Color" is the debut single from the group, and it has set up some pretty high standards for anything to come next.” Stereofox (AU)

“sounds a bit like Tunng scoring Antony in a dust storm, not quite a middle ground between the bandmates past output but a third point in a musical triangle” The Fader (US)

“‘Same Color As Digital Photography’ is an initially curious, uncustomary folk track that eventually reveals a royal flush of a hand.” FakeDIY (UK)

“This song on repeat.” Booooooom (CA)

“an exquisitely delicate track that sounds incredibly impressive from the very first listen” All Tomorrow Music (PT)

“There was a hype going on and it was worth it.” Nothing But Hope & Passion (DE)

“We’re already looking at one of the best tracks of the year” GoldFlakePaint (UK)

“What Cancer offers here on their debut is sonic modesty at its best, and we love every bit of it.” Hilly Dilly (CA)
