Klimaforandringer: Slægt

The Danish band, Klimaforandringer (Climate Change), led by the guitarist Lars Bech Pilgaard, returns with their second album Slægt (genus).

Once again, they explore their own original brand of Danish haiku-like poetry, hypnotic afrobeat-riffs and kitchy synthesizer landscapes mixed with acid rock and psychedelia. There is an ethical undercurrent in the texts that try to negotiate a position in the world where things are not seen in absolute terms, but rather in an open, humanistic perspective, hence the title "genus" as a statement about human relations.

The skepticism towards binary positions is also highlighted in the music that deconstructs such oppositions as western music and world music and arrives at a new position in-between. The topics also change between the serious and the silly. "Verdenshjørner" (Corners of the World) speaks about "these eyes who call for me" as a reminder of the people around the world that can't be ignored, but there's also the less serious statement about drinking tea and partying on a Sunday on "Søndagsfest" (Sunday party). Somehow, the sacred and the profane, the serious and the silly, mix on an album that believes in art as a genuine opportunity for changing the perspective on the fixed positions in the world.

A note: The LP does not include any lyrics and there is no information about the instruments played, but it is pressed on beautiful orange vinyl.

Track Listing: Angsten for at flyve; Verdenshjørner; En tilstand; Lidelser; Slægt; Søndagsfest.

Personnel: Lars Bech Pilgaard: guitar, vocals; Taus Bregnhøj Olesen: guitar; Peter Skibsted: bas, vocals; Rasmus Kjær: keys; Rune Lohse: drums, vocals; Anders Vestergaard: drums. Guest: Nikolaj Kaas Claesson.
