New Found Land

New Found Land originally from Sweden and now based in Germany were formed by Anna Roxenholt and started life as a duet. They have developed and expanded to become a collective of up to eight musicians. Anna leads the band on an exploration of world music as the melancholic atmosphere is overlayed with superb lyric and composition to create a sound instantly recognizable, but also refreshing. The recent tour comprised: Joel Wästberg (drums), Jonatan Ahlbom (tuba), Edvin Nahlin -(keys / vocals), Moritz Lieberkühn (guitar / vocals) and Anna Roxenholt (vocals / saxophone).

New Found Land traverse a diversity of musical influence and settling down to hear their out-put takes the listener on a tour of the world of contemporary world music. The distinctive vocal of Anna, superbly off-setting the music, with a lilting voice reflecting the content of each track.

It would be possible to write about the sounds to be heard in the music, though as it is so diverse, it would become a list of genres across the world. One moment the uplifting beat is replaced by an introspective beat as the band explore human interaction and relationships. This nature of material marks New Found Land in a hugely exposed position to criticisms of lack of coherence, but this would only be relevant were they not consummately capable of taking on the range of music and delivering it intense feeling and emotion to the material. Their breadth of material is what makes the band of significant interest.
