Semi-local act Drön is in the middle of a very eventful week!
They moved from the western part of Jutland, and are now living here in this mighty fine music town called Aarhus. From here they are now ready to release their long awaited 7″ record, and that calls for a celebration! This coming Friday they are inviting everyone to HQ , for what has been called one of the more interesting duo-extravaganzas in recent times in Aarhus – and i gotta agree on this. The line-up includes three duo’s, who all play three different types of rock music. Let’s list them up:
They’ve created a hard, heavy and quite complex soundscape, based on nothing but drums and bass. It is pretty intense up-tempo rock, with elements from Punk and Metal. They’ve played support for bands like ICEAGE and Thulebasen, toured in the US, Germany, Sweden and Iceland, played at SPOT Festival’13 and released a couple of really good albums.
The Raithlin Brothers:
The brothers Kim and Bo Hjort Jeppesen have been playing together for the last 15 years, with great success. In bands like PowerSolo, Kim and the Cinders and Heavy Trash they’ve toured through most of Europe and the US and worked with legendary names. Definitely two important names on the danish music scene! Gaffa once called their music Donkey Punk, but i’ll let you guys decide?
Back to the ones this article is really about, Drön. With inspirations from the 60’s to present time, these guys play hard rock with singing guitar and loud vocals. It’s dynamic, hard-hitting and with heavy riffs, and you gotta hand it to these guys; it’s quite a sound coming from a duo!
Monday they released their first single from the forthcoming release on soundcloud. They named it Judas, and it is as hard-hitting as you are longing for! This song proves just how much sound these guys create, being only two and all. It’s heavy drums from Henrik Lauritsen, and it’s stoner guitar riffs from Anders Birkekær – whom also contributes with a brilliant howling vocal. Show up at this duo-extravaganza friday, it’s free and it’s good!
