The fragility of jazz in harmony with a modern indie sound
After having been buried in working on new music, I Just Came From The Moon finally released the new album Ånd ud, which has garnered great reviews and significant airtime on P8 Jazz.
In the past, the Aarhus quintet has been praised for its ability to combine the heartfelt fragility of jazz with a more modern indie sound. With the new album being a natural follow-up to their 2017 debut Hoax, the band is more than ready to showcase the new music.
I Just Came From The Moon won Ung Jazz in 2016 and have since played packed gigs across Denmark, but have also noticed a growing interest from abroad. So far, this has culminated in two shows at the Oslo Jazz Festival, a showcase at the EFG London Jazz Festival in 2018, and an exclusive concert at the world's biggest jazz fair Jazzahead in Bremen in 2019.
The new album is released on the legendary and now resurrected record label April Record (Kalaha, Little North, OTOOTO, Kresten Osgood).
"Their new music is more stylish, compelling, and magnetic – rounded by what in modern jazz is called the Nordic tone or Nordic melancholy. But a tone or melancholy that, in the case of I Just Came From the Moon, meets resistance from the bright wind sounds of the full moon. In that sense, the music is multifaceted, colorful, and fascinating to immerse oneself in – because one hears the whole as well as sees/hears the details, the highlights, the valleys."
About Ånd ud. Ivan Rod. February 2022.
"These pieces offer clearly defined melodies that slowly slip into the more nebulous territory, where their transformation into the abstract shapes the harmonic patterns. That's why the music has so much warmth and a welcoming atmosphere."
