Listen to "Tears" by Cancer
The duo is ready to present the next song of Totem – their debut album due for release on Jan 27, 2017 via Tambourhinoceros. On “Tears” the driving beat and Kristian Finne Kristensen’s open guitar-landscapes creates a compelling musical foundation under Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild’s fascinating vocals.
Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild about the song:
“The song started out as a semi improvisational jam session that we recorded and cut into pieces. It was written in simple and heartfelt affection and we're proud of how it ended up, but sometimes feelings change and you would say things differently if you had had time to think them through, so I guess we're also sorry for writing it.”
“Tears” are available on digital services from Oct 7, 2016 here.
Totem consists of 11 songs that the band has recorded in the past 1,5 years. The result is 53 minutes of captivating music that invites the listener into its very special sonic space that brings some elements as close as possible while leaving others in the horizon - an open space that appear both minimalistic and extremely organic.
Cancer’s forthcoming debut album (entitled Totem) follows the successful 2014-EP Ragazzi that quickly sold out its 500-unit vinyl run and gained the band a substantial fan-base in their home country Denmark while reaching key media internationally including a healthy Hypem popular chart placement, spot plays at BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music, the playlists at Amazing Radio and DR P6 Beat as well as online features from The Fader, DIY, Noisey, Pigeons & Planes and many more.
