Valby Vokalgruppe: Bah New Era LP
Valby Vokalgruppe: Bah New Era
Bah New Era is an album by Valby Vokalgruppe, released on the label Eget Værelse (A room of one's own). Anja Jacobsen, the leader of the group, founded Valby Vokalgruppe in 2008 as an experiment into what it is possible to do with voices together. What started as pure voice experiment has developed into a band that includes voices, keyboards, effect pedals and percussion - still with the voice as starting point for all compositions.
Bah New Era is heralding this new era for Valby Vokalgruppe and is produced in cooperation with producer and guitarist Oliver Hoiness.
Bah New Era is playfully moving across the borders of conventional musical genres, using the voices as the rhythmical basis of the songs. Through voices and keyboards Valby Vokalgruppe explores minimalistic trance patterns, pop melodies with lyrics on top of old school hip hop beats and improvised cuts over strictly composed pieces – using the voices as instruments and the instruments as voices.
