Album: Lonely in Bergen
Release date: February 2016
Recorded date: From 2009 – 2012
Devil pup reached out to me the last week of February and we starting exchanging information, I learned about his music and took a listen and found talent that if guided with maturity and seriousness it can certainly do something different. Before I start I will be honest, I am not that into instrumental music but I gave it a shot and found myself enjoying ‘Lonely in Bergen’ and humming the melodies of each song.
Lonely in Bergen is a great first step, but what truly makes it worth a listen is not only the ability to turn something that might not be everyone’s cup of tea into something enjoyable and relaxing and the main gift it left me with was listening to a glimpse of Devil Pup’s voice, it’s haunting and so well used, that to be honest if he gave it more of a space into his music it could take him to another level, maybe it’s lack of trust in himself, but I am here to tell him that there is nothing to be afraid of, let your voice out, let it intermingle with your guitar and the drums, let it be another instrument for your repertoire, they go so beautifully together my friend.
My personal favorites: “Atlas (Is waiting)”, “Lonely in Bergen”, “Midnight in Barcelona” and “Don Cesar”
