And I thought the only thing coming out of Denmark these days was Lars Von Trier and Mads Mikkelsen. Now we can add post-punk revivalists Communions
to the list of great Danish exports. I'm never going to complain about bands that wear their love of Disintegration
-era The Cure on their sleeves, but there's a post-rock ambition here that rings of Explosions in the Sky, and yet despite the influence of those two noteably melancholy bands, there's an uplift to Communions on their latest single "Out of My World." The vocals soar and the noise of the guitars becomes something oddly and transcendently beautiful.
