4 danish bands played at The Reverb Conspiracy 2013, all bands can be experienced at Aarhus Psych Fest this weekend.
The last couple of years, Scandinavian music has been getting a lot of attention on the international scene. Most of times it’s due to this light, dreamy (pop) sound that we’ve been specializing in. Something that’s been take us far by now, and something that we should keep our focus on, definitely. However, now it seems like the darker Danish sound is getting the attention it deserves!
Last weekend, Bad Vibrations & Fuzz Club Records reunited for a second year, to celebrate the European Psych scene. A 3-day mini festival, where bands, from all over Europe, played from Friday-Sunday. Going through the list of names for this years line-up, you come across 4 names that has DEN written after it. 4 danish bands, out of about 15 bands, helping celebrate the European Psych Scene, in London! The Wands and The Woken Trees even, 2 of these 4 bands, even played at Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia, UK’s biggest celebration of psychedelic sub-culture!
In our preparations to the forthcoming Psych Fest, i’ve had the pleasure of listening to all of these 4 bands. 4 bands that i wouldn’t usually hear, but my interest in this incredible genre is bigger than never before, and with a festival like Aarhus Psych Fest, i actually have a place in Aarhus where i can explore some of the best from this very genre.
Congrats to The Woken Trees, The Wands, The Road to Suicide & Tales of Murder and Dust! I’ll see you at Psych Fest.
