Communions usher in a new chapter with returning swooner ‘Splendour’

Danish weavers Communions have announced their return, with new cut ‘Splendour’

The band, originally a four-piece but now focusing around the brotherly partnership of Mads and Martin Rehof, are kicking in a new era after the release of debut album ‘Blue’ back in 2017 - signing to new Danish independent label Tambourhinoceros. Lead by an unmistakable knack for melody, expect bright things into next year

Speaking about the track, Martin explains: “Splendour is about a sickly, unattainable love. One which possesses a destructive power. I wouldn’t say that it’s necessarily about a specific person. Rather, in a less concrete sense, it’s about the oppressive power that certain things in life can have over you.” He continues, “For instance, making art is something I love, but not something I feel I can help, and often it can be quite painful and fruitless. It’s like this thing, whatever it is, has chosen you, and not the other way around. It might inflict you with pain, but you almost come to enjoy it; you sort of accept it, embrace it, and maybe even thrive on it. It’s the context of someone addicted to someone or something else — where the power dynamics are skewed.”
