Biography

Under the Sherry Moon is the three great and innovative musicians: Signe Marie Schmidt-Jacobsen (Daughters of Heavy, Paula NewWoman), Oliver Hoiness (Skammens vogn, Joy L, Don't go to NY and more) and Martin Ullits Dahl (Prins Nitram, Eggs laid by Tigers and more) who each have their roots in widely different parts of alternative music. This becomes obvious when listening to their cocktail of genrebusting popmusic containg electro, dub, minimalistic keyboards, organ grinding. The reeling common ground is the smell of playfulness, creative zest, down-to-earth desire for beauty and naughtiness - and the result is their quirky and experimental circus pop. Another trade mark is the truly beautiful and original songs which furter more are are sung by one of the most charming and touching voices in Denmark right now. The band played at CMJ 2009 in New York and all the biggest Festivals in Denmark for upcoming bands. Ex. SPOT 2008. The reviews said:
...On top of this quirky music Signe Marie Schmidt -Jacobsens clear vocal appears. Her voice is influenced by old diva-traditions and its sound is comparable to Hope Sandovals (Mazzy Star) voice. And it is beautiful.... Gaffa review from SPOT Festival 2008 written by Simon Christensen..

...The lo-fi esthetics is obvious, the songs are damn well composed and the casual presence on stage is charming...
..Under the Sherry Moon is a small constellation a guitarist, a drummer and Signe Marie Schmidt-Jacobsen in front. They also played keyboards, banjo, accordion and toy guitar and their expression was playfull. Sometimes they were noisy like Sonic Youth at other times they sounded fragile like Cat Power. Most of the time it was just all about good songs arranged like playful, charming and experimental circus pop.. Soundvenue review from SPOT Festival 2008 written by Otto Lerche.

Under the Sherry Moon will release their debut album this year on Good Tape Records.

Lyrics

Did your wounds dry out, my friend?

Written By: Signe Marie Schmidt-Jacobsen

Did your wounds dry out, my friend?
Did sorrow and happiness finally blend?
Did time go so you could kiss again?

I ask ‘cause I don’t know
Last time I saw you was at my show
You were a beaten warrior without arrow and bow

So tired you couldn’t lift your arm
To aim at me with your charm
You could not keep us safe from harm

OMK
You didn’t wave goodbye
Soldier, you didn’t even try
I hope those wounds are dry
I’m sure you wonder why

Did your wounds dry out, my friend?
Did sorrow and happiness finally blend?
Did time go so you could kiss again?

Bling Bling

Written By: Signe Marie Schmidt-Jacobsen

It’s true that he’s made of steel
And he’s gleaming and smooth
Like a piece of tinfoil
Straightened with a fingernail

And now I can add:
Just as reflecting as a mirror

Oooooh bling bling

The party was only fun because
I was so pretty
And all dressed up to the nines
And the party ended at twelve

Before I stood in my rags again
And had no more talents to show

Oooooooh bling bling

I could only hold him close
And keep him up to the mark
With all of this distance
And by doing my shows - that’s the same thing

I loved him only in my best gowns
In which I gave the performances of my life

Oooohh bl…

James, it rains

Written By: Signe Marie Schmidt-Jacobsen

James, James
I’m glad it rains

I like the wind’s blow
Takes me up when I’m low

Kind of like the frost too
When it grows on you

Sometimes I get so tender you can easily hurt me
Sometimes I’m fine

James, James
I’m glad it rains

Oh, how the thunder breaks
Like almighty heart aches

Your face in every flower I’ve seen
Makes me think of what we could have been

James, James
I’m glad it rains

Oh, James
It rains

chorus..

Stick to me

Written By: Signe Marie Schmidt-Jacobsen


Stick to me, stick to me
You're so georgious like I wanna be

Stick to me, oh stick to me
You're so handsome and you make me pretty

Your face is all over town
Your hands up to hold your crown

Stick to me like those posters in the street
Stick to me plaster on my knee

Chorus
Your face is all over town
Your hands up to hold your crown
Open your eyes don’t look down x 2

Stick to me like sweat to this sheet
Stick to me like honey to a bee

O, stick to me
You're so sexy teach me

Chorus
