Indisciplinarian presents Ensomhedens Kolde Kald, the hook-soaked debut LP by Copenhagen, Denmark-based NYT LIV.
The album will be issued in May, and with the release record’s artwork, track listing, and preorders, an official video for the lead single “Blodet Skygger” makes its public unveiling through a premiere at BrooklynVegan.
NYT LIV is a melodic, rocking hardcore band with slick, infectious hooks and an emotive but bright tone.
Comparable to outfits like Modern Life Is War and Kvelertak, the band sings in their native Danish language about current social problems.
Their bold debut album Ensomhedens Kolde Kald (“The Cold Calling of Solitude”) captures ten songs which deliver ferocity and intensity combined with dynamic songwriting in a lyrical field of social indignation.
The album was produced by Jacob Bredahl (Rising, Hatesphere, Fossils), mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boatright (Modern Life Is War, Nails, Mutoid Man), and completed with artwork and layout by Lasse Høgh.
Ensomhedens Kolde Kald‘ssecond track, “Blodet Skygger,” sees release through a video, directed and filmed by NYT LIV guitarist Martin Goltermann, who states, “‘Blodet Skygger’ is the first single off our debut album Ensomhedens Kolde Kald, and it deals with the state of feeling miserable and how to escape life. We wrote the song during an unexpected break at the studio caused by an old Marshall amp blowing tubes but managed to make use of the ninety-minute studio timeout to write an additional song for the album. We wanted to write a dynamic and intense song, which turned into ‘Blodet Skygger,’ also being the last song we wrote for the album.”
BrooklynVegan debuts the video, offering with the premiere, “NYT LIV are a new-ish band from Copenhagen, and they sing entirely in Danish, but you don’t need to understand the language to be won over by their heavy, atmospheric hardcore. And with Michael Benborg Aagesen’s nasty scream, you might not understand him if he was singing in English anyway. That said, new single ‘Blodet Skygger’ is about some pretty dark stuff.”
