Communions Sign To Fat Possum, Announce Support Tour With Sunflower Bean

June 28, 2016


“Takes the spatial fuzz of post-punk and blends it with the longing of more recent alternative guitar music, resulting in a breathtaking wall of infectious hooks and stirring vocals.” – Noisey

“With a large hint of The Cure’s brooding noir-pop, their sound is hooky but hard-edged.” – NME

“[Communions] remind me of nothing so much as the Stone Roses’ 1989 debut — which is about the highest praise I can think of.” – Stereogum (Best New Bands of 2015)

Fat Possum are thrilled to announce the signing of Communions. The Danish four-piece caught the eye of Fat Possum following two releases on Tough Love Records: AA side 7” single So Long Sun/Love Stands Still and the self-titled Communions EP. You can listen to both at the Spotify link below, or here.

Communions, made up of brothers Martin and Mads Rehof, Jacob van Deurs Formann and Frederik Lind Köppen, create delicate, emotive and timeless indie-rock songs, with a sophisticated and elegant quality which belies the band’s tender age. Watch the video for ‘Forget it’s a Dream’ here.

Today, Communions also announce they will be joining new label mates Sunflower Bean on their UK tour, alongside a headline show in Denmark and an appearance at Reeperbahn Festival. See full list of live dates here:
