Bisse

Bisse aka Thorbjørn Radisch Bredkjær has made 5 albums in 18 months, this being the last one. There’s kind of a plot to it: The protagonist, Bisse, is leaving this mortal coil behind in order to rise to a life above and beyond FOMO and Facebook, narcissism and materialism. He is in other words journeying to a spiritual highland (hence the title, which is Danish for the highland). He doesn’t shy away from testing the listeners, but he doesn’t shy away from pleasing them either. The music as a whole fails to fall into any category. There’s the jubilant brass expanded pop, several curveballs of imploded rock and the more than 12 minute long oceanic odyssey »Kongeegen« in which he visits the possibly oldest living being in Northern Europe, the King’s Oak in Denmark.
