Choir of Young Believers

Choir Of Young Believers started in 2006 as a solo project by danish/greek/indonesian songwriter Jannis Noya Makrigiannis. After making 1 demo song, they were signed to Copenhagen record label Tigerspring. The band made its debut in early 2007 with the EP "Burn The Flag" which earned them loads of attention in Denmark. Since then COYB have developed into a band/collective involving 8-10 other musicians. In september 2008 their highly appraised debut album "This is for the white in your eyes" was released in Denmark and will be released in the rest of the world in the fall of 2009 on US record label Ghostly Int.

Murder

Murder is the project of Jacob Bellens and Anders Mathiasen. They have composed and played together for ten years. Their first album, One Year From Now It’s My Birthday, arrived in March 2005. The latest album, Stockholm Syndrome, released in Denmark in October 2006, has been getting rave reviews and several critics declared it album of the year. The critics also gave Murder two nominations at the annual critic award show in 2007; one for “Best New Band” and one for “Best Vocalist”. Despite their lo-fi sound, Murder received massive airplay at the national radio with the singles When The Bees Are Sleeping and Applejuice. Stuart Staples from Tindersticks is a declared Murder fan, and the band was invited to support Tindersticks on 8 shows in December ‘08. Live the line-up varies from duo to septet. A new Murder album will be recorded early 2009, and is expected to see the light of day in late Summer 2009.

Valby Vokal Gruppe

Valby Vokalgruppe was formed as an experiment into what it is possible to do with the voice and with voices together. The compositions made by the leader of the choir Anja Jacobsen are based on rythmical patterns and very close harmonics and often require a great deal of concentration from the choir members, which, when performed, can lead the thoughts to some kind of a ritual.   Valby Vokalgruppe will make recordings in september 2009, and hopefully release a small album before the end of this year.

We have goals for what we want the music to feel like, don't know if that will make any sense, but when we started out we wanted to be like Nirvana & Guns n Roses, performance theater and some really abstract magic electronic music all mixed up.
