Info for Polyester Skin
It’s a rare pleasure to introduce such a fully formed and unique talent to the world stage. New hfn signing Jacob Bellens has been much lauded in his native Denmark for some time, but now the rest of the world gets a chance to dive into his wondrous musical universe.
“...a devouring charm ... A wealth of intelligence and depth define ‘The Daisy Age’. Whilst the songs are lyrically whimsical and diverse, it’s the aesthetics and melody which inspires the pieces to resemble a cultured mosaic as the splendid ‘End Of The Needle’ departs.” UK-based Artrocker on Jacob Bellens’ solo debut The Daisy Age.
“We played some shows with Danish band Murder earlier in the year and I became a fan. Simple music and melodies, but with a real depth and a strangeness within the songs...and a great voice.” Stuart Staples (Tindersticks) praising to Jacob’s band Murder on Pitchfork Jacob Bellens’ forthcoming solo album Polyester Skin (HFN Music) is set to amaze left-field pop enthusiasts and singer songwriter-fans alike.
The locally celebrated and award winning singer songwriter Jacob Bellens is ready to release his first internationally signed solo album Polyester Skin on 5th February 2016 through HFN Music (Trentemøller, Reptile Youth and more). Polyester Skin is a wonderful mix of heartfelt lyrics, crisp & modern pop productions alongside Jacobs signature vocals that never fails to captivate the listener.
Ostensibly a breezy synth pop song, Polyester Skin exhibits some of Bellen’s greatest attributes - beautifully crafted double-edged lyrics, masterful delivery and captivating production. The result is a finely crafted release that fits perfectly into the hfn roster of playful, modern pop music. The instrumental version allows space to admire the incredible pop-prowess of the production, courtesy of the one and only Kasper Bjørke. The sparkling, melancholy-yet-uplifting mood is fully realized, providing the ideal counterpart to Bellen’s sublime songwriting.
Danish photographer and video artist Jonas Bang created a wonderful, weird and charming video for ‘Polyester Skin’.
Born in 1979 in Nakskov, a small town in Southern Denmark, Bellens has written songs since the age of 13 resulting in a huge output of material. He has released albums in various constellations since 2004, including three albums with the duo-project Murder, four albums as lead vocalist in I Got You On Tape and two solo albums, The Daisy Age (Wind Some Lose Some, 2012) and My Convictions (A Spot in the Sun, 2014). In 2013 Jacob Bellens and fellow Copenhagen songwriters Fridolin Nordsøe and Kristian Leth wrote the theme song for one of the big national TV series of the year (Dicte) and Jacob is also one half of the duo Goblins alongside Lars Iversen from The Asteroids Galaxy Tour whose track “Heartbreak City” has been all over Denmark’s P6 Beat radio station this summer.
In 2011, Bellens won the Danish music critics' award Steppeulven for Singer of The Year and, with I Got You On Tape, also the prestigious P3 Guld award from the national Danish radio. Both Murder and I Got You On Tape, as well as his collaboration with Kasper Bjørke, has grabbed several Danish Music Award nominations.
This album contains no booklet.
