Sometimes it seems pretty hard to figure out the meaning of today’s band names. One pretty good example is Danish Alternative rockband Skyskraber – maybe it is some kind of megalomania, the inner urge for break-through on cloud number 9 or an unexpected side-effect of composing and recording in a subterranean bomb shelter near the National Gallery of Denmark for the last 2 years.
Anyway, the end product of my latter theory are actually 2 really different songs called “Life In A Coffin” and “Shaping Stone”, which mark the release debut of these 4 guys and probably describe the intense time since the foundation of the band.
“Life In A Coffin” fascinates with an interplay of a furious instrumental intro, before an abrupt pop tune and bright-voiced men choir sets in and suggests the impression of dreamy future prospects and overwhelming energy. Very catchy!
On the other side, in “Shaping Stone” instruments come to the fore and emphasize a fragile, vulnerable theme which perfectly reflects the ability of Skyskraber to serve tracks with a serious amplitude as well.
Skyskraber will release a bunch of new songs in the nearer future and hopefully also embrace us with their live debut! You can listen to the band’s recently released songs on SoundCloud or check them out on Facebook.
