Americana Highways brings you this premiere stream of Kristian Harting’s The Fumes (Exile on Mainstream), due out on January 24. The album was recorded and produced by Kristian Harting and Lars Lundholm (On Trial, Oresund Space Collective) at Black Tornado Studios and Room 21 in Copenhagen and mastered by Nikolaj Vinten (Coldplay). The Fumes features guest musicians, including bass by Jakob Falgren (Trentemøller), keys by Jesper Bo Hansen (Glenn Hughes), drums by Mads Beldring Hansen, and backing vocals by singer/songwriter Nana Schwartzlose.
With just the right amount of suspense, this Danish outfit achieves a central balance between pop and roots. Listen to The Fumes’ hypnotic catharsis when you need to find your resolve.
I set out to create a simple, dark, melancholic, and beautiful indie pop/rock album with short ‘straight to the juice’ songs. I had the Beatles’ Rubber Soul-era ideal. Cut the fancy sound imagery and emphasize the songs, the vocals, and lyrics. I brought in musicians for the recordings, and most of the songs are recorded live in the studio with drums and bass. — Kristian Harting
