Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear.

Tallinn Music Week is a music industry conference and major showcase for new and emerging artists from all over the world, with an emphasis on Northern, Central, and Eastern Europe. The festival takes place in Tallinn, Estonia, and many of the venues are located in Tallinn Old Town, the best-preserved medieval city in Northern Europe with Gothic spires, turrets, and winding cobblestone streets that only enhanced the magic of the experience discovering new music. Over 250 bands from a diverse array of genres performed, including hip-hop, R&B, indie rock, electronic, metal, punk, folk, jazz, funk, soul, pop, world music, and choral. Over 800 music and creative industry delegates attended, and I was invited to share the KEXP story. I participated in a number of panels including discussions about the trend and impact of the genrefication of music, and a talk about music discovery and the role of human curation in the Artificial Intelligence age. It was a great exchange of ideas, and an excellent opportunity to represent KEXP to the European music industry. I’m excited to share the great new artists and bands I discovered at TMW. I’ll be featuring them on the Afternoon Show and during the Song of the Day podcast this week.

Today’s pick is “Ombre” by Danish band The Entrepreneurs from their 2016 EP, Tony Rominger, on Like A Can Of Beans Records.

The Entrepreneurs – Ombre (MP3)I’m not sure why the Copenhagen based trio named their new EP Tony Rominger. Perhaps they are fans of the Danish born cyclist, who was dominant during on the European cycling circuit during the 90s, or perhaps it’s the relentless pace and rush of adrenaline that comes from listening to these noisy punk pop love songs with Mathias Bertelsen’s distinctive vocals. Feel the rush, discover and download “Ombre.”

Find out more about The Entrepreneurs on their Facebook page, and watch them perform “Ombre” live at The Royal Danish Academy of Music 2016:
