"If you like Quadron, you'll love Boom Clap Bachelors." And if you don't like Quadron, the Danish duo of producer Robin Hannibal and vocalist Coco O, then we suggest that you get your head fixed. Freshly released on Plug Research for the US, Boom Clap Bachelors are a kind of spin-off from Quadron, getting their friends involved: Ronni Vindahl, Thomas Bisballe and David Cytryn on production, with Liv Lykke joining Coco on vocals. The obvious difference between the two groups is that BCB has Danish lyrics, but nothing gets lots in translation. The Danish title Mellem Dine Læber translates to "Between Your Lips."
We post a lot of Quadron on the blog, only because everything they do is fantastic. Their constant brilliance is partially due to vocalist Coco, who is featured in a new digi-release for free download: Homebase presents Live at the Clubhouse. Coco re-made / covered / interpolated / sampled the 1976 Deniece Williams song, "Free." The result is her new track "Sleep," the characteristically sweet breathy voice backed by a full band.
