The Danish quartet Slowburn has received praise in Denmark as well as internationally for their bold mix of minimalism, no wave and exotic atmospheres. Band leader Lars Bech Pilgaard has gathered a crew of distinct players. Together they create a highly personal expression that leaves plenty of space for eruptions of noise as well as fragile explorations.
On their latest album, “Folketro”, they take a dive into Pilgaard’s personal heritage in the Western outskirts of Denmark and take inspiration from Danish folk music and folklore without abandoning the adventurous nature of the band.
We’re looking forward to present this brilliant quartet at ALICE!
“A psychedelic landscape with Andersson’s thick electric bass laying the foundation for a journey where a spider-web of crystalline guitar sounds slowly evolve into a steady rhythm. This tension between poetic abstraction and immediate riffs and rhythm lies at the heart of this fascinating record that sounds as if the iconic post-rock band Slint travelled to Africa to play jazz and psychedelic music” – All About Jazz
