EDITORS’ NOTES

Lukas Graham's diaristic lyrics add extra potency to his band’s piano-tinged offerings, which meld the theatrics of fun. with the genial charm of The Fray. Frontman Graham's supple voice brings grit to the life assessment “7 Years” and lends gentle self-deprecation to the strutting, horn-tinged “Drunk in the Morning." The laidback funk propelling “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout Me” adds bite to the song’s message of self-determination, as the Danish band approach the tropes of blue-eyed soul with openhearted honesty.

Breath taking

I am absolutely amazed by how much this music affects me. I feel so connected to the words and essences of the songs. Mama said is everything I've lived with my whole entire life and 7 years makes me appreciate everything I have and how much I want to have. Thank you for writing this music and changing my views on music these days, you a truly a gift to this generation. I have never wrote a review before but this felt needed. I'm counting down the days until I can fall in love with the rest of your music.

7years

I'd hear 7years on the radio and could kinda sing along. The other day traveling home, sitting in traffic I listened to the words... They got to me. I started crying. When he talks about being 60 years old and having his kids visit once or twice a month. My parents live far away from me, I'm lucky if I get to see then once a year! I was bawling! Came home and immediately downloaded the song and started previewing some of the other tracks that have been released. ❤️❤️❤️

About Lukas Graham

From the free-living enclave of Christiania in Copenhagen, Lukas Graham Forchhammer and his boys -- Mark "Lovestick" Falgren on drums, Morten Ristorp on keys, and Magnus "Magnum" Larsson on bass -- have crafted a combination of funky pop and R&B stylings, which made them popular in their home country of Denmark. With his soulful delivery and honest lyrics, Graham recounted tales of family strife, poor decisions, and the celebration of life, all inextricably entwined with his years spent in Christiania. The young Graham's musical influences ranged from classical -- gained during his childhood experiences with the Copenhagen Boys' Choir -- to the Beatles and the Stones, as well as the Prodigy and Dr. Dre, whose Chronic 2001 was one of the most influential albums for Graham. Despite a less-privileged childhood, his parents were strong role models and much of that love was reflected in heartfelt songs like "Mama Said" and "Moving Alone." In early 2012, he released his first album, a self-titled effort that included "Drunk in the Morning," which went on to become a hit throughout Europe. Once they received more international exposure, they were signed to Warner Bros. in 2013. A second self-titled album -- nicknamed the "Blue Album" -- was released in late 2015 and featured the international hit "7 Years." It went on to sit atop the Danish charts for an impressive 18 weeks and peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
