The White Album
The leaves are changing, the weather is growing colder and there is a crispness to the air; the romance of Autumn is settling in and therefore, folk music will be on constant rotation.
Beards, flannels, mulled wine, coziness and folk music are arguably my favorite and most memorable things about Fall. The season simply would be incomplete without them.
As all of those archived fall + winter + folk bands emerge from the shelves, new additions are always welcome. Copenhagen trio, The White Album create gentle melodies and sing with the kindest of harmonies. Their music captures the warmth of the autumnal colors, tones and hues. Their new track "Kings and Aces" was appropriately tested out today whilst walking through Central Park as the burnt orange leaves were falling. The song comes from their debut full-length, The Quiet Strum which was recently released in Europe here, and will be available in the US soon.
Their music is best summed up by them as, “Three danish men with big hearts, big beards and big bellies playing alternative folk music with a hint of Nordic melancholy.” Claus Arvad, Frederik Vedersø and Jakob Eilsø write, compose and play every track, and their well-manicured beards do the rest.
