Song of the Day: Bremer/McCoy – Gratitude

Danish duo Bremer/McCoy, made of pianist Morten McCoy and bassist Jonathan Bremer released a new single Gratitude. Their new album Natten is set to release on the 29th October via Luaka Bop, founded by David Byrne (Talking Heads).

Based in Copenhagen, their sound is both melodic and meditative and in respect of the deeper vibrations, they travel with their custom-built sound system. That might seem like a lot of effort for a quiet Danish duo, but for Bremer/McCoy, making music is all about what happens in the room. That’s why they go through the trouble of carrying their own equipment, and it’s why they record analog. When they write music, they aim for direct transmission—idea straight to composition.

Natten is the follow-up to a string of albums - their debut Enhed (2013), Ordet (2015), Forsvinder (2016), and Utopia (2019). We felt greater freedom this time around because we now have a much deeper understanding and grounding in what we’re doing. This allows us to venture further out than ever before because we know that things typically fall into place, says Bremer.

Listen to Bremer/McCoy new single Gratitude, from the duo's forthcoming new album Natten:

Ahead of the album, Bremer/McCoy shared the video for soothing new single Gratitude. I wrote the main melody for the chorus of “Gratitude” one late evening after a session in the studio. I was just sitting and vibing, playing, reflecting on the day and then suddenly this melody just came to me out of nowhere, actually together with the baseline. And it came together with some simple words. I was singing in my head og jeg takker, which is basically “and I give thanks for that". That moment of time, that was just everything, the feeling of being in the universe, where there’s this loving energy, just very present, and the feeling of being humble and grateful for being able to sustain myself by doing what I love, and the feeling of being grateful to have such a nice family, friends around me. I was just very grateful and humbled by simply being in that moment of time, says Morten McCoy.
