Those who've been following these pages regularly already might have discovered the Scandinavian but now Berlin-based band outift Straight From The Harp through their latest video posted here a few weeks ago and you might be excited that they're now ready to roll out their mentioned need for PostWave-influenced DesertRock and Dark Indie on a full length album these days. Still I don't exactly get why especially Danish people are that fascinated by deserts - well, they got a lot of sand,too, and there are dunes on their shores but does that count in as similarity ? - and their specific feel of loneliness but no matter what, the droney, partly intimate feel spread on "I'm On Fire Just For You" does go very well with the characteristic use of the slightly echoeing, than trailing away blues harp which is one of the main ingredients here and defo responsible for the bands name as well. Recommended to all followers of the likes of Anders Trentemöller, Darkness Falls and their fellow musicians... and to open minded fans of Johnny Cash, although there's not much Blues involved here. But you might like the overall feel.
