‘No One Dances Quite Like My Brothers’ (Sacred Bones)
Vår recorded their debut over two sweaty weeks in New York. They were topless most of the time. On a night off they stayed in an Atlantic City hotel room with a hot tub in the middle of it. Imagine Loke Rahbek and Elias from Iceage submerged in bubbles. The grin that might elicit is similar to ‘No One…’’s effect. Nostalgic, positive and romantic, it pumps new warmth into Copenhagen’s cold and concrete punk movement. As drums thud beneath smoky atmospherics and vocal interplay, it’s impossible to be unmoved by these two boys who used Vår to become best friends.
