VIRGIN SUICIDE | DENMARK

Danish outfit Virgin Suicide find inspiration in jangly guitar-based pop music reminiscent of that found in certain pockets of the UK in the 60s, as well as the 80s. Turning elements of these throwback sounds into fresh and invigorating new noise, the band have spent 2016 enchanting crowds at the likes of by:Larm festival in Oslo, and at Roskilde Festival in their native Denmark.

On the back of their by:Larm performances, Virgin Suicide were named 'Band of the Week' by Paul Lester of The Guardian who wrote; ‘Remember this band’s name’ – and after their performance at Ja Ja Ja, we’re sure you won’t be forgetting Virgin Suicide anytime soon.

TELLEF RAABE | NORWAY

Norwegian singer songwriter Tellef Raabe is inspired by the likes of The National and Neil Young. His smart, dark, eclectic and catchy indie-pop, combined with his deep and rich voice, has attracted attention from music lovers over the past years. By touring with his five piece band, his reputation as a live artist has been growing rapidly and we have great expectation for his Lexington show. “With a voice you'd expect to come out of a throat belonging to a man significantly more advanced in years and, by contrast, boyish good looks and an effortless, contemporary style, we're hoping for - no, predicting big things for Raabe over the coming months” - the 405

MAVRICK | SWEDEN

Inspired by the textured drama of Massive Attack, the pop experimentation of Prince and the rhythmic pulse of Thom Yorke's solo adventures, Sweden’s Mavrick, aka 25-year-old Marcus Sennewal channels the spirit of these musical, er, mavericks into a framework of classic pop songwriting. This can be heard on his single Remedy, a cinematic, deliciously dramatic love song bolted onto an undulating drum n bass backdrop.
