Savage Rose – De Vilde Blomster Gror

rose

One of the most well-known rock groups from Continental Europe, Denmark’s Savage Rose recorded a wealth of intriguing and eclectic progressive rock in the late ’60s and ’70s. In their early work, one hears faint echoes of the Airplane, Doors, Pink Floyd, and other psychedelic heavyweights combined with classical jazz and Danish-Euro folk elements. Their arrangements rely heavily on an incandescent, watery organ that sounds like nothing so much as psychedelic aquarium music. The most striking aspect of the band’s sound, however, was the vocals of lead singer Annisette. Her childish wispy and sensual phrasing can suddenly break into jarring, almost histrionic wailing, like a Janis Joplin with Yoko Ono-isms, and eerily foreshadows Kate Bush’s style.
