Kristian Gaarskjær’s musical alter-ego, now extended with producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Søren Vestergaard, are creating their own blend of darkfolk, indie and electroamericana. On their new album Comes in Waves they seek to create a unique, organic and ambient sound in a mix of acoustic and electronic instruments with the focus on strong melodies and a production that feels both modern and traditional at the same time. Creating a peculiar and personal soundscape. Like a meeting between Sufjan Stevens, Thom Yorke & The National.
 The lyrical themes on Comes in Waves are personal and circle around struggles with depression, anxiety and substance abuse. The result is an emotional, but beautiful, collection of songs that in the end has a glimpse of light and optimism in the horizon.
