Friday Fascination: Broken Twin

Sometimes less is more, and in this case: simplicity seals the deal. Broken Twin is the project of Denmark's Majke Voss Romme, and this is not the style of music you'd blast on a beautiful sunny day, or maybe you would? It's the type that often goes unnoticed, and should be taken into account for how beautiful it is. You don't always have to have an intensified form of instrumentation to get the point across. Broken Twin sticks to the bare minimal using only strings and piano (for the most part.) When I listen to BT, I am often reminded of other UK Artists such as London Grammar & Daughter (who she recently supported on tour) & The XX, it's all ears on what she has to say (or sing.)
Her debut album May comes out in April (on the 29th to be exact) via Anti Records out of Los Angeles. Believe me when I say that this young woman has a bright future ahead of her. 
Broken Twin just wrapped up a small handful of European dates supporting James Vincent McMorrow whose most recent release Post Tropical has become one of my favorites. (Check it out on Spotify here.)
