Sorte Firkant is a small alternative music festival which takes place in 4 different venues at Nørrebro in Copenhagen and kicks off this Thursday.
Sorte Firkant strive to present a mixture of established artist within niche genres, but also a large emphasis on upcoming artist, from in and outside of Denmark, usually in the confinements of noisy, alternative and extreme music.
The bookers recommendations.
Orm – Stengade, November 7
Taking inspirations from ethereal shoegaze, post rock and grinding black metal, Orm released their latest album “IR”, which following critics, might be the best danish metal release this year. the 50 minute long album consist of only two songs, that crushes the boundaries between metal and composition music. They sold out local venue Alice weeks in advance for their release concert, and delivered one of the best performances we have seen all year.
De Underjordiske – Stengade, November 8
After a break from playing live, De Underjordiske is back stronger than ever. What started out as psyched out rock inspired by nordic tales, has since evolved into the most profound danish rock act around today. The band have spend parts of the summer recording and writing new material, and we look forward to hearing the best songs from their two critically acclaimed albums, and get a taste of whats to come in the near future.
Arto – Støberiet, November 8
Bologna based Arto will also play their first danish show at Sorte Firkant Festival 2019. Arto might be unknown for most music fans, but we believe thats about to change very soon. The instrumental quartet describes their music as glooming cinematic soundscapes, that mixes post rock, punk and prog into their own unique style into their own unique style of contemporary rockmusic. They have also recently toured with Daughters all around europe.
Olden Yolk (US) – Stengade, November 9
After after two critical acclaimed albums since 2018, Olden Yolk is finally ready to cross the atlantic sea and give us a taste of their comforting mix of indie, folk and rockmusic. Their latest album, Living Theatre, was written just after they finished a year long tour by following several interesting dogmas. A constrained 3 month deadline, working indoors with no windows resulted in an album that delves with concepts of home, spirituality, and ancestry in a contemporary landscape. We are really looking forward to see this act live.
