Copenhagen’s Shiny Darkly
today release their debut album Little Earth
. The album is available to purchase now via iTunes
and their label Crunchy Frog
. The band will celebrate the UK release of the record with a show at London’s The Waiting Room, on Thursday 11th June. Tickets are available now
Building on the raw, punky energy of Shiny Darkly’s first EP’s, Little Earth breaks new land as the band ventures into a sonic landscape of more expansive and atmospheric textures. Thus, the album moves between organic noisy post punk melodies and epic ballads. It is simultaneously melodic, chaotic and frayed at the edges, evoking a rare blend of icy ferocity and high octane sex appeal.
This is no more evident than in their most recent music video – filmed in a Copenhagen sex club. Watch the NSFW video for ‘Animal Fate’ on YouTube.
Shiny Darkly are Kristoffer Bech (vocals and guitar), Mads Lassen (drums) and Oliver Matthew Volz (bass guitar). These three fine, young gentlemen, still in their early twenties, have played at SxSW, CMW, Roskilde Festival, Iceland Airwaves, Reeperbahn, Eurosonic, Liverpool Sound City and The Great Escape, plus a multitude of venues, injecting their haunting sound into the dark heart of the new wave of Nordic Noir music.
