Nille Nyc – Underspillet Elektro-pop

Nille Nyc er en ny dansk artist , som indtager musikkens verden med en stærk og dog underspillet attitude. Nille Nyc laver krystalklar elektro-pop med kantede, sprøde vokaler og tekster med historier fra hendes liv. Hun blander tempofyldte tracks med reflekterende ballader, altid med en stærk elektronisk vibe. Alle hendes sange er en del af hendes 4P koncept, POWER, PAIN, PILLS AND PERCUSSION, som fanger essensen af hendes sangskrivning og former hendes live optræden.

Nille Nyc er både sangskriver, co-producer og artist og hun styrer selv sit kunstnerliv. Hun samarbejder med den kendte producer, Mette Damm. Selvom Nille Nyc først for nylig er startet som soloartist, har hun allerede udgivet tre singler og to akustiske versioner. De blev alle udvalgt til vigtige playlister af New Nordic Indie og Spotify. Singlerne blev også spillet i amerikansk radio og i det populære podcast show, Rubyfruit Radio, som fokuserer på kvindelige artister. Nille Nyc arbejder nu på sit debut album, som forventes udgivet til næste år.

Artists In The Spotlight note: Nille Nyc might be a newcomer to the Danish music scene, but she is a hardworking musician that knows who she is and where she is going, and she’s letting nothing get in her way. You can read the full interview here: https://wp.me/p9ewew-DP

Amalie & Laura

Amalie & Laura er en duo bestående af 2 unge talentfulde musikere, der er vokset op henholdvis i Præstø og Eskilstrup. Siden 2014 har de to piger udfoldet deres musikalske evner på flere forskellige scener rundt omkring i Danmark, deltaget i Danmark Dejligst festivalen samt vundet Kulturelt Samråds Musikpris 2017 i Guldborgsund. Med musikalske rødder og kærlighed for pop og singer/songwriter genren emmer deres musik og tekster af personlighed og ærlighed, både for hinanden, men også til de omgivelser de bevæger sig i, i dagligdagen. Og denne gang tager de deres band med bestående af Oliver, Christoffer og William.

Artists in The Spotlight note: These ladies are amazingly good, and they deserve to be exposed to a wider audience. My guess is that in a few years’ time everybody will know their names. Read the full concert review here: https://wp.me/p9ewew-Lu

Select Captain (solo)

Danske Select Captain er synonym med sanger, sangskriver og guitarist Kristian Gaarskjær. Med et musikalsk afsæt i den amerikanske sangskrivertradition, tager Kaptajnen lytteren med på et roadtrip gennem et fængende og skrøbeligt musikalsk univers, domineret af solide melodier og et sfærisk, melankolsk lydbillede.

Kaptajnen er netop nu aktuel med sit 3. album ”Off To Save The World” der blandt andet indeholder sangen ”If I Should Go” der har fået hele 1.5 mio. streams på Spotify

Select Captain har de seneste år haft flere singler i rotation hos DR P4 og P5, udgivet en EP og tre albums, samt turneret flittigt både herhjemme og i det tyske, med hele hans band og på egen hånd hvor han bl.a. har supportet navne som George Ezra, The Lone Bellow, Ed Harcourt, Jonny Lang, Joan Sheller, Sivert Høyem og mange flere.

Artists In The Spotlight note: Select Captain is the undisputed master of pop songs of gloom and despair, combining Americana with Danish melancholy to create a truly unique sound.

Deadwood-Celebration.

Deadwood-Celebration er netop nu aktuelle med deres første fuldlængde album, “Out Here We’re No One, But We Know Where We Belong”, der er en opfølger til debut-EP’en, “Separate The Preacher From The Choir”, fra 2015.
Pladen består af 9 live-indspillede skæringer der, på minimalistisk og rå vis, bringer bandets stærke melodier og dragende riffs frem.
Albummet er et energisk værk, der gennem de ni numre berører emner som social klaustrostrobi, besværlighed kærlighed og afsked med ungdommens bekymringsfrie
tilværelse. Fra den punkede førstesingle “Electrical” med det Weezer-farvede omkvæd til den dansable og honky-tonk frække albumlukker, “New Satan”, trækker Deadwood Celebration en klar streg gennem ørkensandet og til deres musikalske idoler.
“Vi har lavet en plade, der tydeligt viser hvem vi er, hvad vi kan og hvordan vi synes at rock skal lyde”, fortæller sanger og guitarist, Morten Thuesen.

Deadwood Celebration har eksisteret siden 2013 og blevt
dannet af Morten Thuesen (gtr/vox) og Peter Kræg Pedersen (bas/vox). Siden 2014 har Jeppe Stærk (gtr/kor), og Rasmus Dvinge (trom) været faste medlemmer.

Artists In The Spotlight note: Deadwood Celebration is in the top five live performances I’ve ever seen…and I’ve been going to concerts since 1978! Read the full concert review here: https://wp.me/p9ewew-sM and the full interview her: https://wp.me/p9ewew-wU
