Some time ago, we were invited to be a part of the lovely Newbees Festival, a festival that we’ve always seen as an important local festival. This is where many established musicians have played, back when they were upcoming talents – this is names such as Baby in Vain, The Minds of 99, Linkoban, Quadron, Cody and The Rumour Said Fire!
This year, we’ve been a part of the booking and it has been an absolute pleasure. We’ve been able to check out a lot of talented bands, but the festival only fits 10 acts – and they’ve now been found. Here are the first 5 bands announced to play at Newbees Festival:
Feel Freeze is Mathias Vinther and Else Raymonde Gaunoux. They’ve known each other since 2004, but their musical friendship has been on a long travel – and this year they released their debut EP ‘Future Emotions in a Digital Heart. Expect energy, and expect dreamy, melancholic, alternative pop! Check out the single ‘Wet my Tongue’ right HERE
This is a one man project from Jeppe Kiel Revsbech, who creates beautiful dream pop. Later this year he’ll release his debut ep, and so far he’s released the single ‘Afraid of Stairs’ – a song that has been given airplay on both English and Danish radio.
Now, this local super group just recently got together – coming from 5 different projects, but something magical happened when they started working together. Their first single, ‘Daydreamers’, has been given a lot of attention on the internet. Lowly is Nanna Schannong, Kasper Staub (Islets of dust), Soffie Viemose (NANOME), Thomas Lund (Point Blank) and Steffen Lundtoft (NovemberDecember).
Just a couple of days ago he released his new single ANIMAL. A lovely electro-chill we also featured on Sound of Aarhus as an exclusive premiere. Besides releasing his debut single, SHERPA will be playing at Berlin Music Week. If you are a fan of electronic vibes and chill-out tunes similar to famous acts like THE XX and Spleen United you will simply love this guy!
The past three years they’ve been touring in Denmark – supporting names such as The Blue Van and BigBang. Here they’ve been playing songs from their debut EP ‘If We May’ from 2012 – and testing new material. At this moment, they’re in the studio to record their debut album! Inspired by bands such as The Beatles, Oasis, Led Zeppelin and Kasabian, the four guys (Linus Valdemar, Andreas Valdemar, Nicklas Løvén and Max Hoffmeyer) plays music with love – hoping to create great melodies, catchy songs and to push people on to the dance floor.
