Broken Twin - May

She said she likes „simplicity and music that has a melancholic vibe” and was touring with Daughter – there is no better recommendation of a musician for me, than this. And a final push: signed to ANTI-Records, the same label as musicians: Kate Bush, Tom Waits and Nick Cave.

Broken Twin, because it’s her we are talking about, is the stage name of Majke Voss Romme, who just released her debut album on 28. April. „May” is a proof of great talent, artistic sensitivity and incredible maturity regarding making music.

The whole album is consistent and creates an intimate, soothing and warm atmosphere, which surrounds us like a safety bubble. On a first „ear’s glance” her music may come across as gloomy or sad, but it isn’t – she is fragile but brave and hopeful, searching for something and being curious about the world and nature of relationships. For me those are feelings overflowing from Broken Twin’s music, its lyrics and pace.

„May” came just right on time, together with spring, full of promises and hopes. You can stream the whole album on the UK Telegraph website and buy it in a digital version through iTunes store. Do it!

Below there’s a glimpse of what you can find on this wonderful debut record.
