NEW ALBUM OUT NOW! 
SAUDADE 

With ‘Saudade’, we have created an anthem that praises the tradition of folk music. The songs, written by Puggaard-Müller, can in essence be described as dylan-esque. By incorporating horns, strings, choirs, samples and soundscapes to our palette we've been exploring new sonic territory. Being inspired by the recent work of Nick Cave, Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens and Fink, we have challenged themself to take a more symphonic direction.

‘Saudade’ is a word unique to the Portuguese language and closely related to the traditional fado (folk) music of the country. It expresses a feeling of longing, melancholia and/or nostalgia.

The seven songs that make up the album were written by Puggaard-müller in a turbulent period of his love life. While breaking up with his long-time dutch lover, he found himself moving from couch to couch through the city of Amsterdam. Should he stay or should he go back home to Denmark? The band was now his main love and reason to stay, but he also met a new girl in Amsterdam. Both this girl and the old love, are both well-known singer-songwriters, living on different ends of the city. This created a vacuum that made it difficult to start anew, and so a year into the new love affair, his inability to move on and commit to a new relationship, resulted in another heartbreak that sparked these songs into existence.
