Selvhenter are part of the art collective eget værelse and honed a sound all of their own – an uncompromising, boundless energetic one that blends the aesthetics of experimental rock, the sophistication of improvised free jazz and the aggressiveness of punk, noise and metal, all performed with passion and humor, sometimes even as music fit for dancing.
The all-female band Selvhenter is part of the bustling and sprawling Copenhagen underground. In a controlled eruption of two drumkits and distorted trombone and alto saxophone they kick against rationalism and the homogeneity of welfare society – and show us that passion doesn’t have to be sung, but can flourish as collective instrumental cramps.
Said about Selvhenter:
“An absolute rockin’ Danish outfit using material from extreme noise, free jazz and creative rock to build a sound and energy that is giving new perspectives on alternative music! Gushing and pumping drums that interacts with the distorted trombone and lays the fundament for the sax to move and create within. Inyourface and without compromises – using poetic beauty and complex structures as building blocks for their music.” – Mats Gustafsson
Highboy is Sufie Elmgreen and new band. Elmgreen is a composer, producer, musician, writer, performer and painter always working shifty shapes with many names and interlacing many genres, styles and histories, but always with the aim of the ecstatic and transcending.
This night Highboy performs History Of The Skirt – loud long and affective trench songs.
Elmgren hosts the D/O ripper radio show on MMH radio, she composes music for choir, and has played in constellations such as the extreme-improv band sæNk, stoner ambient band Bearth, polish metal band Dynks, G-bop orchestra, Drummesses, and under monikers such as Die Jane (gothy jungle dark ambient), Tæsque (moan pop), Miq and Ghoster.
