"Get Some of That Good Old Rock‘n’Roll From Communions on “Got To Be Free”"

This is the taste of being alive, baby... Alive!
Communions are a band that breathe the vigor of an early morning, and can connect families and generations. We've covered them a bunch of times in the past, like here​, and here​, and here​. But now they're returning with a new record called Blue, released with Fat Possum, and it's spearheaded by the single "Got To Be Free" which we are premiering in full fat audio content below.

This isn't a track that will save the world. It's not going to beat poverty or catalyse some new form of romance. ​But it does sound damn good. Put this on in the morning, drink a cool glass of juice, and taste the flavour of being alive, baby. Convince your dad to smoke pot and send him to the garage with "Got To Be Free" and watch him come back as a changed man. Get this record a damn sync deal, right now! This is hot, this is cool, this is the sound of windswept, good old rock'n'roll. Listen below. - NOISEY US


"crunching and soaring with burning melodies and bass hooks"

Posh Isolation is the noise-ensconsed label at the heart of Copenhagen's bristling underworld of punk and power electronics, but this week they're taking an unexpected turn, releasing a guitar pop 7" that could actually make you yearn for the spring. The four-piece Communions share a practice space and tattered sense of fervor with Iceage and Lower, but they can't be drinking from the same water: Communions' earnest spirit has so many streaks of sun cracking through that it feels almost surreal within the context of Posh Isolation's traditional bleakness. "Children" comes from the debut Cobblestones EP—the title track was one of the better recordings from last year's Dokument 1 comp—crunching and soaring with burning melodies and bass hooks and a racing 1-2 drum beat that makes it feel defiant of gravity. Its message is mostly masked by muffled vocals, but "Children" audibly dreams of something. - Pitchfork


"Communions were one of our Best New Bands of 2015, and it's looking like the Copenhagen outfit will end up one of the best continuing bands of 2016"

Communions were one of our Best New Bands of 2015, and it’s looking like the Copenhagen outfit will end up one of the best continuing bands of 2016. Last year’s self-titled EP highlighted their knack for pulsing guitar-pop that sparkled through an icy sheen, like a supernova cradled within a glacier. They recently signed to Fat Possum, and today are sharing the single “Don’t Hold Anything Back” from an upcoming 7″ out this fall. The song finds their frozen exterior thawed and that burning inner core completely exposed. Communions have never sounded so up-front, shedding reverb and sharp guitars for bold handclaps and summery rhythms.
“Don’t Hold Anything Back” is built for inclusion on personally-crafted playlists (or what would have been the last generation’s cassette mixtapes), and for sneaking through the speakers during an early afternoon drive with a romantic interest to set the tone for the direction you want the day to head in. It captures that same sonic glint that made their best songs perfect for putting on loop and getting lost in a daydream. This time their energy is just a little less restrained — they didn’t hold anything back. Listen below. - Stereogum
