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“.

30th Nov – The Hot Tin – Faversham
