Selvhenter (DK)

Sat 12.8 22:30 - The Other Sound

Selvhenter honed a truly unique sound – 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 outfit Selvhenter is part of the bustling and sprawling Copenhagen underground. In a controlled eruption of drums and distorted trombone, violin and alto saxophone they kick against rationalism of the welfare society – and show us that passion doesn’t have to be sung, but can flourish as collective instrumental cramps.
