If youâ€™re a fan of Sigur Ros, Bjork, the experimental side of Radiohead, the meditative hypnosis of Godspeed You Black Emperor! and the moodiness of Portishead you need to see Under Byen. Seattleites have the fortunate opportunity to check out this Danish band open for the Album Leaf Tuesday night at Neumoâ€™s (rounding out this killer bill is Arthur & Yu).
After obsessing the good part of a year over the majestic beauty of their third album (first North America release) Samme Stof Som Stof, I witnessed their splendor firsthand when they performed for KEXP during our March SXSW broadcast. The experimental electronic rock collective exceeded expectations creating deeply emotional soundscapes at times delicate and introspective, at times bombastic and mind numbing.
Take in some musical fireworks on July 3rd at Neumo’s and get blown away. Be sure to tune on Tuesday at noon, when theyâ€™ll be performing live on KEXP!
|Under Byen have a stunning track on the upcoming Live at KEXP, Volume 3 CD.|
