(7/10) Danish rocker Black Income released a critically acclaimed debut album entitled ‘Noise Pollution’ back in 2016 and with having the album in the shelves the guys played a bigger amount of live shows, opening for acts like Bullet and Tigers Of Pan Tang.
One year after having released the debut it was bass player Michael Gersdorff that joined the band, a next step in evolving Black Income’s music and sound. The result of hard work can be listened to on the sophomore release ‘unSOUND’, to be unveiled end of August this year.
‘unSOUND’ is a very well-crafted album, combining Alternative Rock and Grunge to an exciting mix. Songs like ‘Feels Like a Storm’ remind, based on vocal lines and riffs, of bands like Alice In Chains. It’s this rainy Seattle-vibe that creates the overarching theme for ‘unSOUND’ and there’s a lot if greyness coming with each of the song, which includes the Soundgarden-inspired ‘The Sun’. Furthermore it’s distorted vocals starting ‘Go Quite’ before melancholy continues with ‘Wait for Wonders’.
Black Income revitalizes the ‘90s Grunge sound. Although bands like Alice In Chains, Nirvana and Soundgarden created the blueprint for this kind of music, it’s Black Income that picks it up and transports it into the here and now. Time to wear the woolen check shirts again.
