NELSON CAN | DENMARK
Nelson Can started out as a lie - there was no band - it was just a dream. ‘We just really wanted to tell people that we had a band, and so we did. Now we actually have a band and it is just as amazing as we had imagined it would be.’ Nelson Can operate with several dogmas and a very noticeable one is that the band use no guitars. Their sound is original and "to-the-bone" simple, inspired by acts like The White Stripes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Siouxsie and the Banshees. The set-up with only drums and bass creates the perfect framework for the simple, yet very powerful melodic dogma rock sound.

ALBERT AF EKENSTAM | SWEDEN
Like, say, Elliot Smith (rest in peace) and Damien Jurado, Albert is a very brave and straightforward singer- songwriter. His melodies and lyrics are like uncensored and infinitely beautiful letters – without euphemisms and false chords they let you know what’s on his mind. At the same time they’re universal – if you’ve loved and lost you can relate to them. They also start your internal movie projector. With “Ashes” on the stereo and with eyes closed memory fragments, glowing emotions and pure dreams fly through your soul. That Filip’s production (which you’ve heard on Anna von Hausswolff’s two latest albums) is both intimate and grand at the same time makes this personal cinematic experience even more sensational.
Great art. What more can you ask for? Albert af Ekenstam is here to stay.

HAJK | NORWAY
Hajk’s first song, «Common Sense», was listed by Norwegian radio stations almost before the band got of our their rehearsal space, and the album «Magazine», which was released in early autumn 2017, got a great reception by international media. In the US, «Noisey» picked up the single straight away, and this blazed the trail for the band over there. In England, «Indie Shuffle» was quick off the mark. Sweden also liked Hajk’s consistent pop music, and «Svenska Dagbladet» called «Magazine» one of the best, new songs that autumn. The bands debut album has gotten great reviews in Scandinavia, Germany, UK, US and beyond. The band are influenced by artists like Dirty Projectors, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Amason, but still they stand firmly on their own feet, with an original sound that also challenges the genre they belong to.
