Here’s a first watch for Oh Land’s new single, White Nights. Quirky, eclectic, stylish, cool… etc…

Mads Langer

The Danish pop stud that is Mads Langer was one of the first posts I did on Alfitude, and he’s out with his first album in the UK today so I feel obliged to mention it. Go out and buy it, it’s great!

Fancy some catchy Danish rock?

Danish music has been making a massive push since last year, and this band in particular have made a bit of a splash in the States. They make rock that’s catchy as hell. To the point where I just have to blog it… Check New Politics out here!

New Music: Stephanie

Again, Danish music doesn’t fail to impress. This is pure dirty electro pop. Just screams ‘wow’. Check out here.

Live: Alex Clare & Oh Land at XOYO London

After the first time seeing Alex Clare live I knew I wanted to see him again. As it happened he was supporting Oh Land tonight at XOYO in ubercool Shoreditch. He didn’t disappoint, got me jumping around a little bit. I can’t wait for his album to drop!

Oh Land came on with a huge headdress made from feathers. She too was amazing, and clearly had a big crowd of devoted followers. One of the best shows I’ve seen this year (despite bumping into an ex of mine inside). All I can say about her music is it’s kinda like The Knife, but with a bit of heart. The Danish invasion continues. Oh, and Boy George was hiding in the crowd! Few more pics on my Flickr.

New Music: When Saints Go Machine

Danish electropop who have been around since 2007- so they’re not really new I guess but better late than never. Their track ‘Fail Forever’ is full of movement, it’s beautiful. Sort of Miike Snow on a comedown. Check out here.

Listen to Drake’s ‘Fall For Your Type’… in Danish. If you like.

It’s kinda sexy.

New Music: Oh Land

Right, I must confess that I thought I’d already written about Oh Land but scrolling through some of my stuff on here I realise I haven’t and it’s slightly embarrassing. Since first hearing her fantastic song ‘Sun Of A Gun’, she’s gone on to raid American TV shows while causing a crazy stir on the web. So actually, it’s not very new at all but it’s still exciting. Quirky, inventive and very well done Danish pop. She’s coming to London in May and I can’t wait for it. Check out here.

New Music: Jasmin

The Danish pop invasion continues. This tune by Jasmin, roughly translating to ‘My element’ is very infectious. Check out here.

Thomas Holm ‘Lidt for Lidt’

My obsession with Thomas Holm continues. This is his latest single, ‘Lidt for Lidt’ – something to do with being too little, or such… There’s so much good music coming out of Denmark right now, very exciting. I wish people wouldn’t get put off by enjoying music that isn’t in English!

New Music: 4 Guys From The Future

”Just as the track is a multifaceted pop song we wanted tomake a multifaceted video. We were compelled about thiscertain space in which the abstract and the human emotionalare brought together with symbols about the universallife. The future, we believe, holds a new form of communityfor all people and this we will soon begin to encounter. Thatis why we want to explore symbols about the universal.” Check out here.

New Music: The New Spring

”When being in love everything that was inside before is now worn outside. Sweat bubbles in your palms, blood flushes through to the cheek (blushing). This feeling illustrates more than anything else the body’s reluctance to take a definite form”. Beautiful acoustic songs about love from Bastian Kallesøe. Check out here.

New Music: Fallulah

Already huge in Denmark, Fallulah is some seriously cool pop. This is like some speeded up Lykke Li. Check out here.

New Music: Treefight for Sunlight

Danish indie/pop sound, reminiscent of 60’s psychedelic. Check out here.

Unfortunate

I love this video way too much. I can’t really figure what he’s singing about other than he’s having a bad time with luck but I think the boxing gloves show that. Thomas Holm is amazing yea! I wish UK solo men would have this much fun with their music.
