Joe & The Anchor Together with High Coast
A new concert Joe & The Anchor Together with High Coast at Kick-Start @ Babel
Swedish singer songwriter Daniel Walke forms the backbone of High Coast, with songs
based around his evocative lyrics and acoustic guitar. Daniel is often joined on stage by the band which nowadays comprises Agust Wegestål, Sakib Zabbar and Victor Becker.
Since 2010, Daniel Walke has been writing songs about a wide range of subjects including the lives and happenings of himself and others, of natural disasters, films and nature. The project draws comparison to similar bands and artists in the genre, such as Fleet Foxes, Iron & Wine and Great Lake Swimmers.
High Coast's eponymous debut EP was released in early 2013, and was warmly received by indie music-blogs in Sweden and internationally.
"These four tracks are ripe with promise and I hope there is more
on the way." - David Cowling, Americana UK
"Performed in English and in an acoustic rock vein, the release shows a band that have a strong sense of melody and a poetic touch to their lyric. They are also a band that are aware of what is going on in the wider world and its impact." - Neil King, FATEA Magazine
"Don't miss this, whatever you do." - Tommy Juto, Kulturbloggen
With mighty harmonies, grinding guitars, heavy drums and a dreamy piano, the members of Joe & the Anchor dare to explore new avenues of todays popular music, with influences from a multitude of genres.
