Our friends and colleagues from Oh!Behave and Frimusik have made an exciting playlist, consisting of rock music from the Danish underground scene. A lot of amazing things are happening in the Danish underground, and especially on the rock scene, maybe because rock has been dead for many years in Denmark. But when a genre reaches it’s silent time, a time with excitement will follow afterwards.
DØRT as the playlist is called focuses on some pretty interesting names. Mellow Yellow for example, who play dirty, old school rock ‘n’ roll, based on cool grooves from both guitar and organ. The band takes you back to the time when The Doors ruled the world, and makes you want to take your cloths of and spread some love. Also The Brazierlights In The Window takes you back to psychedelic music, and early Pink Floyd. The band has a very drone-based sound, and a very unique singer with an amazing voice.
Another important name to remember is Hand of Dust. The band has a very aggressive and driven sound, witch fits very well in with the whole Copenhagen-underground-punk-scene led by Iceage and Lower.
The playlist also features more established names such as Artificial Brothers and Darling Don’t Dance. But the most exciting names, not only in the playlist, but in this nation, is Broke and Captain Casanova. The duo of Broke has succeeded very well making their own sound. When you say: “Nightclub calypso music mixed with bloody loud noise guitar” out loud, it makes no sense at all. But for Broke it works quite more than well. They have a very intense, but at the same time, very big sound, and they give extremely great live-performances. Everybody who went to their SPOT-gig at a full-crowded Radar knows what I’m talking about.
