“Historic, maritime, ample and just out in the Atlantic” – that is how Wikipedia describes Cape Cod. No wonder then that the Danish indie-pop trio Spine of Man found “Cape Cod” to be an appealing name for their current EP that has just been launched few weeks ago. It is a well chosen name, as the newest release of Spine of Man consists of four melodic songs that seem to be the perfect soundtrack for a long drive just by the Atlantic ocean – or well, maybe any other ocean drive as well.

Even if the EP has certain similarities with Britpop and also reminds me a tiny bit of the Scottish band Frightened Rabbit, the tones of the songs and the longing passages of the lyrics show a clearly Nordic background. Opening with the song “Lifetime”, the release offers a rhythm-based song that is a perfect companion to relax, let your thoughts flow and go on a ride. Continuing with “Vampires” you can dive into the longing Spine of Man must be singing about. Even if a bit full of metaphors, the sound doesn’t sound too cheesy to me, but rather easy-going and perfect for freeing your mind and letting you flow through a day by the beach.

The combination of light-hearted melodies with the strong voice of lead singer Alexander Støvelbæk and the pop-like background in each song makes this EP a perfect companion to just let the day flow, go on a roadtrip or enjoy a day out in the sun. Perfect for the upcoming summer evening-chill.

You want to get some Danish soundtrack for your daydream about a perfect summer day? Then try out Spine of Man’s new EP “Cape Cod”. Listen to it on Bandcamp or Spotify.
