Demons Are Real

Another band who participated in the Starfighters contest I mentioned yesterday was quartet Demons Are Real. The band didn't finish in the top 3, which immediately makes me jump to the conclusion, that there must be more music talents in Denmark than ever before. I've read in a review somewhere that one of the major complaints about the band is that you have heard this type of music lots of times before (dark and depressive music, which is perfect for rainy days). Fair enough. Every second new band these days claim to be inspired by New Order, Joy Division, The Cure and the likes, and though I guess some kind of "retro-rock" will always exist, it's perhaps time for upcoming bands to find new sources of inspiration? Oh well. I honestly don't care as long as the bands keep creating interesting sounds and Demons Are Real sure does, and this is yet another Danish band with, what seems like, endless potential!
