about

“The music is magic — a repeating motif of clanging, chiming guitars and pounding percussion, punctuated by even more compulsive rhythmic patterns and the seething flow of poisonous riffs.”
-No Clean Singing (USA)

“The new album ‘Svin’ sees the band offering up a phenomenal and unrelenting barrage of psychedelic experimental music, bordering the lines of post-rock and experimental jazz. Svin demonstrate wonderful musical technique on their latest effort, one that excites and sometimes confounds in oddly enjoyable ways.”
-The CD Critic (UK)

Since the release of their debut Heimat in 2011, SECRETLY WE ARE GAY in 2013 and their latest self-titled album from 2015, SVIN have made a positive impression on the Danish and international music scene. Recent years they have been touring heavily, playing on festivals and clubs all over Europe and Russia.

SVIN is an unorthodox approach to instrumental music. They celebrate freedom in music and hails independence, love and limitless diversity in art!
The bands latest, self-titled critically acclaimed release presents 35 minutes of borderless un-compromised psychedelic cascades of sound and harvested massive worldwide media attention.

In working with their fourth studioalbum, SVIN have turned to Iceland to record at the legendary Sundlaugin Studio, established by Sigur Rós. SVIN are moving across the borderlands between abstract rock, drone-based folklore and ambient noise. Behind layers of polyrhytmic drums, floating keyboards, roaring saxophone and explosive guitar they have made room for airy, meditating melodies and circulating motifs.

  2. Hej Svin 🙂

    Mit navn er Christian, og jeg er manager hos lydstudiet Mørkværk.
    En af mine arbejdsopgaver er at holde ørerne åbne efter bands som kunne være spændende at arbejde med.

    Jeg faldt over jer via GAFFA, og gav jeres musik et lyt. I er ganske enkelt utroligt fede, og jeg er vild med jeres lyd (Muskelhund, How Deep Is Your Love).

    Hvis I nogensinde går og tænker på indspilning/mixing/mastering, så hav os endelig i tankerne. Vi vil gerne give jer en god rabat – fordi I ville være en fed oplevelse for os i studiet 🙂

    Mvh
