This Friday, one of the most dazzling musical collectives will be conquering Stakladen in Aarhus and create a synergy of amazing music and blooming talent. Even though most people will connect the Thy area with a somewhat rural area, a place where overalls and blue-collar work is a mandatory part of people’s everyday life – Thy Music Collective will most definitely convince you that the reality is the opposite.
What is Thy Music Collective, you might ask – It is a merger between 11 bands and artists from Thy, created to work as platform and playground to enhance and unite the focus on the Thy area, as well as creating possibilities for innovative artistic cooperation.
This Friday the collective will visit Aarhus, Stakladen at Studenterhus Aarhus to be exact, and bring three brilliant acts. This is indeed a rare must-see possibility for the music-lovers in Aarhus. The bands you will be able to experience on Friday will be Magnolia Shoals, This Is You, and Artificial Brothers. In short, there are three bands on stage during the night, and exactly four reasons to buy a ticket; Thy Music Collective, Magnolia Shoals, This Is You, Artificial Brothers. Enough said.
Magnolia Shoals: Released their debut album ‘Tenants’ in February this year, and have been performing at both SPOT Festival, ALIVE Festival, and Trailerpark. They were even mentioned as one of highlights at Trailerpark. Musically they move in the indie-genre – it’s mellow and atmospheric.
This Is You: This is melancholic indie rock when it’s best. After a lot of waiting from the Danish blogosphere, they are finally ready to release their debut EP. This summer they have played at both SPOT Festival, ALIVE Festival, and at Pumpehuset. That said, on this night in Aarhus they will play their entire debut EP. Expect synth and indie-rock, with magnificent melancholic vocals by lead-singer Mads Bertelsen.
Artificial Brothers: We haven’t heard from the artificial family for a long time. That said, they are still active, and have now finally unveiled that new material ‘Helen’ will be released in the spring next year. Maybe one of the reasons for their silence the last couple of years can be found in the fact, that Mathias Bertelsen and Anders Hvass from Artifical Brothers have been busy with their second band project The Entrepreneurs. The quintet Artificial Brothers’ new sound will be inspired by 80’s and that decade’s use of synthesizers and dry drum sounds. According to the band’s Facebook page, nothing new have been released yet, so this show will the first opportunity for us to hear some of their new material.
