Biography

Denmark’s The Sound of Hush release their UK debut single, ‘All The Right Reasons’ on 1st February 2010, with their UK debut album, eponymously entitled, ‘The Sound of Hush’ following on February 8th 2010 via CD and download.

The duo, consisting of Dorthe Gerlach (vocals) and Michael Hartmann (guitar) wrote this folksy pop ballad, about a couple struggling with “Goodbye”, on the morning after a party in their flat, the track picking up that melancholic ‘day after’ vibe; rainy, dusty and sour.

They met while Gerlach was busking in Hartmann’s hometown, the two instantly hitting it off under the lure and lore of Danish winters and Fleetwood Mac albums. There’s certainly the charm of Stevie Nicks in Dorthe Gerlach, the singer also growing up amid Dolly Parton and Tracy Chapman records, influencing her distinct, characteristic voice that lends itself so well to Hartmann’s structure and the fragility of their debut album.

‘The Sound of Hush’ is a collaboration of folk, pop, blues and rock in sound that balances the emblematic light and dark corners of their songs. “You know, a happy song doesn’t take the weight out of a sad song, it underlines it, and vice versa”, says Hartmann on the emotional eclecticism of the album. With a clear folk ethos, the album covers different moods and sides of life; from twisted minds, love and murder, to revenge, hope and fear… and everything in between.
