Black Sea Dahu “How You Swallowed Your Anger” – Listen

Black Sea Dahu’s Janine Cathrein, the Swiss songwriter, found herself musing after two failed relationships that there was nothing left for her on land – this thought went swimming through her brain whilst surfing.  Desperate thoughts though are grist to the songwriting mill – so out of this low-point came a new five-song EP ‘No Fire in the Sand‘ which is released today.

How You Swallowed your Anger‘ is a lilting folk song that rejects any further thoughts of romantic entanglements whilst wanting to retain the ability to make connections to others.  Not an easy circle to square, but it’s a pretty final decision: “I’m sorry but I swore by my mother that I wouldn’t believe in Love again“.

Black Sea Dahu is in the UK for a short tour at the end of November:

30th Nov – The Hot Tin – Faversham
01st Dec – Bobik’s – Newcastle Upon Tyne
03rd Dec – Thousand Island – London
04th Dec – The Castle – Manchester

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
