Danish songwriter Bjarke Bentsen has been making a splash across the globe for a while now—although you may not know it. Having previously released music under the name The Migrant, Bjarke is back with a new collective of musicians as psychedelic folk outfit Rainbrother.
Having supported well-established acts like Kurt Vile, Villagers, and Sharon Van Etton, Rainbrother have been receiving huge amounts of praise for their debut album Tales From The Drought. The first track taken from the album “Riverside” was premiered by the highly regarded UK label Fat Cat Records and the band have been flying higher and higher ever since. Their latest single “Blue” is a feel-good banger that will whisk those winter cobwebs away, feeling reminiscent of early Fleet Foxes as well as indie newcomers Whitney.
Bjarke formed Rainbrother after returning to Copenhagen and meeting up with a group of fellow Danish musicians who had previously performed with Bjarke while touring as The Migrant. The rest, as they say, is history and the band have been going from strength to strength ever since.
Rainbrother will also be performing at the upcoming SXSW festival in 2017 along with the following live dates:
3rd February 2017 – Album Launch Show – Huset – Copenhagen
22nd February 2017 – Paper Dress Vintage – London
