When we whisper, we do so to conceal secrets; to deliver sultry messages to lovers that no one else present can hear, or use hushed tones to prevent disturbance. Why Tina Dico‘s latest studio album has been given this name is not, at first, entirely obvious. It does not whisper, but creeps and broods in its darkness, and rather than shying away it confidently pronounces.
As a new generation of smoldering young songstresses, including Lana Del Rey, Lorde, and Banks, reaches a wide mainstream audience, it’s the perfect time for the reemergence of Danish singer-songwriter Tina Dico. Her latest studio effort is a richly rewarding, complex reflection on love, loss, and acceptance. Dico and co-producer Helgi Jonsson strip her musical dynamic to the essentials to create a proper aural correlative for the vulnerability and naked emotion in the album’s 10 finely etched narratives.
