The Danish dreamrock quartet Another Juggle are planning to release an LP towards the latter end of this year.
With an even more drifting ethereal and haunting soundscape to their music, there is a rationale that the newest song to surface from the forthcoming album, which had been contemplated as a possibility for their début LP is heading on to the next release, not as an off-cut from something past, rather as a marker of album of more broad orchestration, that, in Shield (which was released as a stand alone single yesterday), invites the listener to join in the slow-time waltz and glide together across the expansive, ghostly, ballroom.
The almost weightless sounds float like feathers in the air with an easy lilt, but rather than being carried away in the breeze with little regard, the feathers are fascinating for their textures and colours. Another Juggle are able to produce sounds which are on cursory glance unremarkable, however there is more to the output than mere easy listening backdrops.
The quartet create tracks that find the synths rolling through the room in spacious gliding steps with the guitar adding to the feeling of elegant unobtrusiveness, whilst the percussion and bass paint darker shadows and the lyrics deliver melancholic reportage delivered with a slight echo which gives the sound its intrigue.
It will be interesting to discover how Another Juggle are able to capitalise on the release of the LP Dance Sunshine, Dance which came out on the 29th of January as the ten track album takes the listener from virtual pop to some delightfully dark thoughts, which inevitabely are the tracks that capture my attention.
