Søn

A curly quintet

Søn

A curly quintet

Roskilde Festival stars Søn have garnered attention with their own definition of experimental, catchy pop.
Their debut album, Det Skandinaviske Design, is a personal portrait and a poetic wrestling match with contemporary norms and ideals. The songs deal with serious, complex topics, but always in an attentive and relatable manner. And their concerts have a habit of adding new dimensions to their songs.
Soundvenue gave the album five stars and has named Søn as one to watch in 2019.

Fastpoholmen is a colourful bouquet unrestrained by genres. This large orchestra performs reggae, electronic, indie and jazz with a melancholic, Nordic undertone – first and foremost set by lead singer and songwriter Adam Fastholm, who is also the band's originator. Fastpoholmen has released a total of three albums, of which Andas In from 2013 won a DMA for the Best Danish world music album. Live, the band – with an explosion of different impressions, instruments and genres – is an extraordinary experience you will not want to miss.

Upcoming pop star

Ea Kaya

Upcoming pop star

This promising singer from Copenhagen had been refining her own style and moving within genres such as soul, jazz and rock before landing on electronic pop. And bullseye: The first time she sent her demos to a record company, she got a bite. She was offered a contract, and in January her debut EP, Fragile But Strong As Hell was released in the form of three singles in just three weeks! She has been overwhelmingly well received, and a number of media have highlighted Ea Kaya as a name destined for greatness in 2019.

R&B with attitude

On her 18th birthday, Clara released her debut album, August Eighteen, to mark the high point of a childhood full of creating music and songs. Already as a 13-year-old, she was lead singer in a band put together by one of her older brothers, and she travelled devotedly several times a week from out in the country to their rehearsal room in the city of Aarhus. While still at primary school, she was contacted by a producer who sent her songs to the record company Sony. And she has never looked back. In 2018, she was often played on the radio and was nominated for the P3 Talent Award. Now she is ready to present her music live.

The singer Jakob Aksglæde is happy to name his sources of inspiration as CV Jørgensen, Marie Key and Nikolaj Nørlund. But he is unique for sure. His poetic lyrics are based on personal experience with melancholic undertones. He performs so well that his debut from 2014, Lille Taarbæktøs, was recently added to the national songbook, Sangbogen. His concerts in Copenhagen have also sold out, so if you missed getting a ticket, just pop into Tivoli.

Bette

Danish-language R&B

Both Soundvenue and Vega have picked out Bette as someone to watch in 2019! The Danish singer had a long run-up to releasing her music. She has always sung and written songs, but mostly for her own sake, and even while sitting in a studio working on her music, she had no idea her music would reach a worldwide audience. That all changed when in 2018, she began cooperating with Emil Kruse and released her first single, Forstår Dig Nok En Dag. Since then, the pace has accelerated, and now she is ready to perform her music live together with her band, comprising Felix Ewert (drums), Jonathan Rahbæk (bass) and Thorvald Naur (keys).

Fluent keyboard tones, rhythm guitar and an insistent beat set the course for Palace Winter and their dreamy melancholic pop – you will find all these elements on their latest album Nowadays from 2018.

Dør nr. 13

True rock

Cut to the bone. Less bullshit. That is the mantra for this five-man orchestra, which is inspired by the poets of rock and literary history. In 2016, they won the nationwide radio competition Karrierekanonen, and have been extremely busy ever since. Their songs hum with energy – catchy dance numbers one minute and crowd rousing the next. Their debut EP, Krigere Uden Våben, came out in 2017 and was followed up last year by a full-length album, Verden i Flammer. At the start of the year, Dør nr. 13 was picked by Gaffa as a band that will make it big in 2019!
Bonus info: The band was named after a former ride in Tivoli!

When 22-year-old Artigeardit raps, it shouldn't just sound cool but must also make sense, according to a DR interview. And clearly, when he has something on his mind, he explains his ideas in a way that is always true to himself while leaning towards the hip hop culture. His debut album, VILDEDAGE from 2018, has paved the way for sold-out shows at Vega as well as a performance at this year's SPOT Festival. Artigeardit's rap is lyrical and poetic, and he is one of the most exciting voices on the Danish hip hop scene right now.

Jamaika

Tough lyrics and a soft voice

Jamaika, originally from Somalia, was hardly typecast for success as a musician. His career began in prison, where he passed the time writing texts about life behind bars and why he had ended up there. His prison stint also gave Jamaika time to reflect on his life, and he is now pouring all his energy into using music as his platform for a life outside. His latest single, Problemer Sover Ik, blazes the trail, and with his singing rap style about street fighting, he has found his very own niche in Danish hip hop.

Here is a female Danish rapper with lyrical finesse, integrity and a rap flow so sharp it could draw blood. She is 100% DIY together with her permanent producer Yo Akim, and although some years have passed since there was any news on a musical front, Lucy Love has been busy – with the Danish Strictly Come Dancing show in the autumn of 2018, for example. Now she is focusing on new music that we are hoping to hear.

Since then, the duo has experimented with combining electronic and organic elements that support the melodious songs and laid-back grooves.
