Danish rockers No Privacy have invited the infamous Anton Newcombe of Brian Jonestown Massacre to record a duet with them this weekend.
Artist: No Privacy
I'm not gonna do the usual Friday flashback post today because I kind of did that yesterday, but I am going to take us back to 2007. I've mentioned Danish act No Privacy a few times in the past, but I never really caught up with them once they released their debut album "Crime and punishment" almost exactly one year ago. It's a shame too, 'cuz they're a great band deserving of more attention. "Steal my heart" is a total slow-burner. You know the whole time that it's gotta open up and let loose eventually and they tease you a bit, but even the chorus when it finally comes only hints at what's to come in the coda. Even still, they show enough restraint to leave you wanting more. As loud as it gets, it could still go bigger. I like that. There's also something very familiar and comforting about this band's sound. It's reminiscent of so much 90s alt-rock, but when pressed, I can't think of any examples to properly compare them to. Shame on me for sleeping on these guys for so long.

There's something about this band that I really like. There's something almost classic-rock about them, but it's more than that. They definitely aren't retro.

Sounds pretty decent methinks.
No Privacy has split from Hard Soul Records. The band is currently wrapped up production on a new album that they recorded in their own studio for release sometime later this year.
Danish band No Privacy has signed with US label Hard Soul who will release their debut full-length in January. An EP for the single "Beautiful Life" will be out in July. Hard Soul was founded by Trevor Randall, the executive VP from Acid Jazz Records in London, the label that signed Jamiroquai, the Brand New Heavies and Mother Earth.
