Getting anxious and depressed just thinking about how far your have left the summer festivals behind? And most of all, that you have to go through winter before it all returns? Don’t worry – We got you and your music hungry ears covered.
This year’s RECession festival will make sure to keep you fully entertained and pumped with new and exciting music experiences delivered by national and international artists.
This is the 14th time this festival is taken place and as always, the focus is on exploring new and different musicians that don’t just pop up everywhere. This is a unique chance to discover music that makes you wonder and ache to go home and find the same tunes on Soundcloud or YouTube channels right after the show.
Get your pens and pocket notepads ready to put down some of your new favorite names from these two nights that will pamper you with tunes from genres such as Indie, Folk, Rock, Electronic, House and much more.
Previously the RECession festival has brought names likes Mike Sheridan, The Broken Beats, Spleen United and Blue Foundation to the surface of the sea of unknown artists. And this year’s program will not be a disappointment either.
The program for the RECession Festival stretches over the following line up:
De Underjordiske // Young Dinosaur // YAST (SE) // Wulfband (DE) // Mayflower Madame (NO) // Spökrakat // Fright Eye // Hybel // Tempelnat // Northern Assembly // Lasse Krog Andersen // Klönk
From this line up, we would like to present three local Aarhus-based bands that you should keep an eye out for: Fright Eye, Klönk and Northern Assembly.
Fright Eye is the punk-inspired contribution to the festival that will burst your eardrums with 80’s style hard and trashy punk that makes you reminisce the good old Sex Pistols days. They have made themselves noticed in the underground of Aarhus for a while, and they seem very ready to blow off some steam in front of bigger crowds.
Klönk is in the calmer end of the music range. They include acoustic guitars, electronic keyboards mixed with edgy Danish lyrics that can’t keep you from smiling, still while taking these guys a little serious at the same time. You’ll find yourself at the edge of laugh and wonder through some of their tracks, but that won’t keep you less entertained, though.Listen to their lovely sound and watch the slightly awkward video below:
Finally, we are proud to bring you Northern Assembly, who is a mix of people born and raised in different places such as England, South- and Northern Jutland, Norway and the Faroe Islands, all coming together in Aarhus to share their common love for acoustic folk/pop music. They play lighthearted and atmospheric folk reinforced by Andreas and Dina’s balanced voices that will make you warm on the inside.
They include mandolin, drums, bass, guitars and piano in a soft interplay, ensuring that your senses will be on watch to embrace it all at once. Listen to their heartwarming track here:
Join me (and the rest of the curious crowd) for a unique opportunity to be one of the first to see many of these great upcoming artists.
It all goes down on the 23rd and 24th October at NyV58 in Aarhus – you can read a lot more about the arrangement on the website www.recession.dk
