Danish duo Me & Munich released their debut EP Knives of the Sun on the 20th September, the same date as vocalist/guitarist Jan Petersen’s birthday.
The Aarhus two piece open with EP namesake “Knives of the Sun” with a thriving alternative rock sound, driving drums from Petersen’s cohort Marco Bogehoj. Their five tracks are raw, unpolished and give the sense of a garage rock sound. Throughout the pair fire off the UK influences riffs bit with “Toxic Wings” which is a standout, as Petersen gives us attitude with his vocals very Frank Black as being heavier and grittier than previous tunes. “Weave” slows the mood down, while “Trixster” the longest tune of the EP builds momentum as it’s a creeper, but feels like two different tunes, as guitars crashed out, while drums blasted the senses.
Knives of the Sun is the first EP under the moniker of Me & Munich, bearing in mind the two members have worked together for many years under a different guise.
