Now we are ready with another number of names for the music poster for Tinderbox 2020. In addition to the reformation of SPLEEN UNITED, the poster also features electro-jazz pioneer PAROV STELAR, grime talent AJ TRACEY, singer-songwriter BANKS and big-hit Danish acts JUNG and CLARA.
Since 2013, SPLEEN UNITED has been on a break “indefinitely”, but now you can finally look forward to a joyful musical reunion with Bjarke and Gaute Niemann, Kasper Nørlund, Rune Wehner and Jens Kinch. The band is again assembled in its original line-up from the breakthrough record “Godspeed Into the Mainstream” from 2005, which offered hits such as “Heroin Unltd”, “In Peak Fitness Condition” and “Spleen Utd.” In 2012, the School of Euphoria secured a Danish Music Award for “Danish Rock Release of the Year” as well as the Gaffa Prize for “Danish Electronic Release of the Year”.
SPLEEN UNITED plays Friday, June 26.
Award-winning producer, DJ and electro-jazz pioneer PAROV STELAR was among the fixtures in the ’00s, among others, at the Hôtel Costes releases, and in 2007 the album “Shine” released the BBC award as “most promising producer in Europe”. The series of dance-friendly samples and hits infused with the electro-swing nerve that characterises the Austrian will surely kickstart a terrific Odense dance party.
PAROV STELAR plays Saturday, June 27.
One of the additions to the poster organisers have high expectations for is Brixton-born AJ TRACEY. Although TRACEY is not yet widely known to the Danish audience, 200 million streams on Spotify testify that the British act has so far broken on home soil in England. The debut album “AJ Tracey” landed in February, and with hits such as “Butterfly” and “Ladbroke Grove”, an acquaintance that extends far beyond the UK borders has been released.
AJ TRACEY plays Thursday, June 25.
They came on everyone’s lips with the first single “I Must Wait,” and now Danish artist JUNG announces that he is ready for Tinderbox. The sequel “She Comes Back” has only pushed even more to the curiosity of what the trio has up their sleeve when they walk on stage in Tusindårsskoven.
JUNG plays Friday, June 26.
Another great Danish talent is CLARA, who has just been named “New Danish Name of the Year” for the Danish Music Awards. In 2018, CLARA released her debut album “August Eighteen”, which is filled to the brim with catchy pop on “What They Say”, “Suffocating” and “Good To You”. Newest plays “Crazy” and “Legend” show significantly more raw attitude, which only increases the expectation of the singer’s debut at Tinderbox.
CLARA plays Friday, June 26.
Attitude also features American singer-songwriter, BANKS, who broke through in 2014 with the single “Beggin For Thread” and has just released his third album, “III”.
BANKS plays Saturday, June 27.
Tinderbox takes place in the Tusindårsskoven in Odense, 25-27. June 2020.
