Album Review

Unless you're Danish, Far is probably your first extended listen to Tina Dico. The singer and songwriter's early work made an impression in her home country, but it wasn't until she took the position of "Designated Hazy Sexy Vocalist" on Zero 7's 2004 effort When It Falls (most notably on "Home") that the world took notice. Far doesn't distance her from the downbeat arc — "Warm Sand" would fit nicely on a Zero 7 record, from its light electro-acoustic wipes to the chorus that rises like an Ibiza dawn, and the gorgeous "Let's Get Lost" builds from dusty personal reflection to a full-blown swirl of synthesizers and surging vocals. Still, "Break of Day" and "Back Where We Started" are probably closer to Dico's heart. "Day" is a mature folk-pop number with a plaintive chorus hook, suggestive of someone like Jem but uniquely Dico at the very same time. The latter takes the proceedings down to just an echoing voice and acoustic guitar. It shows off Dico's admiration for Joni Mitchell, but also her talent for perfect vocal phrasing.

Far is remarkably dynamic for such a brief release, and sets up nicely what should be a strong a full-length.

With heavenly vocals and a poignant writing style, singer/songwriter Tina Dico has topped the charts repeatedly in her native Denmark, caught the ear of Zero 7, and earned a Danish Grammy for Best Songwriter. As she was growing up, her father was a hi-fi aficionado and bought music based on the recording quality, not the genre or artistic merit. This introduced young Tina to a variety of styles, and while she gravitated toward Leonard Cohen, Donovan, and Joni Mitchell, she was well versed in opera...
