So, we were surfing the interweb one day and came across these dudes whose name apparently meant "The Land of Milk and Honey," they played music that ran the gamut of things we loved. They had awesome band photos, and they seemed to have a sunny demeanor. We wrote them an email...turns out, they live in Denmark. We shared a lot of common interests, and figured out that working together would be a good idea. So here it is, we've signed our first band from another continent.

Their music: a revelation. Their future: bright.


Here are the Danes in their own words; questions by us / answers by them:


Where are you from?
We’re from Scandinavia - Denmark and Sweden. We all grew up in the provinces. Jeppe grew up very close to Copenhagen. Mike, Christian (they are twins) and Bjorn about 60 kilometers from Copenhagen. Niklas is from a small town in Sweden.

Where are you now (and why)?
We all live in Copenhagen now. Of 5.5 million people in Denmark 1.5 of them are living in Copenhagen. It’s the Scandinavian metropole and from here we can easily get to Stockholm, Oslo, northern Germany etc. Some of us are studying here.

In Copenhagen there’s a lot of different musical tendencies. The environment we have here is very important for us. The scene is very inspiring.

Why do you do what you do?
We create our music because we need to. This is our way of being. To be creative and expressive and hopefully we will keep on creating music like we do now.  

What's your musical history?
As a band we’ve been together for about 5 years - even longer as friends. We’ve put out two records on our own label Honningmand Records and there’s more beautiful music to come from that label. We started out playing jazzy stuff picking inspiration from all over. The last couple of years have been like a journey for us. We are specializing the music and our inspiration comes from all over now! Our own voice in the music is clearer now (At least we hope so).
