Boomkat Product Review:
Anna Bronsted follows up her 2008 album, When Your Blackening Shows with a beautiful second long-player. The Danish vocalist and songwriter has been known to play keyboards for Efterklang, but this album marks her out as an impressive musical force in her own right. Assisted by various musically-inclined friends (most notably guitarist/keyboardist Soren Bigum and bass player Moogie Johnson) Golden Sea quickly reveals itself as something really quite special; there's something about the overall sound of this record that intimates a nocturnal, bucolic feel, perhaps at times sounding like a more cinematic Bat For Lashes, glazed with a production aesthetic that has a partially dissolved, soft-focus feel. Gauzy opener 'The Departure' finds Bronsted's voice vanishing into a mist of electric pianos - it's almost ambient, yet follow-on track 'In The Lowlands' arrives with a tangibly rhythmic presence that hints at the far more in-depth soundscape featured on this album. The synths here (and on the Kate Bush-like 'Nightsong') have a wonderfully weird, dream-sequence feel to them, and later on, strings surge through mid-album highlight 'The Burial' hitting a similarly ethereal note. With Bronsted's songwriting sounding sharper and more assured than on her debut, Our Broken Garden is a project that's very much on the ascendance, and Golden Sea - without any prior expectations - sounds quite fantastic.
