Seven Danish Bands at South by SouthWest

Slaraffenland at last year’s SXSW. The band is now going to try their luck in Texas  once again.på sidste års SXSW.

This Wednesday, South By SouthWest , probably the World’s biggest festival and music trade show, kicked off, and the Danish bands Afenginn, Kirsten Ketsjer, Lily Electric, Slaraffenland, The Fashion, The Raveonettes, and Wolfkin are among more than one thousand acts in the festival’s five-day programme.

Several of the Danish bands have already made their presence felt in the US: Wolfkin has very recently released their album “Brand New Pants” in the US, where it has spawned a positive press response. Thus, on SPIN’s website, Wolfkin was “Artist of the Day” in February, and the printed edition of SPIN also had nice things to say about the band.

The Fashion is doing well in both the UK and the US
