Rainbrother share new single ahead of Castle gig

Danish five-piece Rainbrother have shared their second single Blue ahead of a gig at Manchester’s The Castle on 23 February.

The single, which is taken from their debut album Tales From The Drought, set for release on 3 February.

After the success of psychedelic folk outfit The Migrant, frontman Bjarke Bendtsen is ready to transcend furthermore into electronic folk-rock territory with the release of his latest project Rainbrother’s debut album, Tales From The Drought, an album about making your way whilst on the road, dwelling on memories both beautiful and troublesome and coming to terms with the decisions that have been made.

Rainbrother was formed after Bjarke eventually found his way back to Copenhagen. While touring with The Migrant in Europe, he performed with a group of fellow Danish musicians and after moving back to his home turf, Rainbrother was born. The album was produced by Noah Georgeson (The Strokes, Joanna Newsom, Devendra Banhart).

Bjarke has been praised by the likes of BBC 6music’s Lauren Laverne and has supported acts such as Kurt Vile, Villagers and Sharon Van Etton. Rainbrother will also be performing at the upcoming SXSW festival in 2017.

Rainbrother perform at The Castle on 23 February 2017.
