SVIN is an avant-garde rock band based in Copenhagen, Denmark. The band has made their mark on the international music scene since debuting in 2011 with the album Heimat. SVIN creates pulsating abstract rock with layers of drone based folklore and ambient noise.
In 2018 SVIN released their 5th album, Virgin Cuts, which features music that drags the listener into a sonic loophole between noise-infested rock, drony landscapes, new age minimalism and dusty afro-tripping. Etheric chords from the keyboard merge with almost hip-hoppy drumbeats and psychedelic guitar patterns. Drawing on heavy inspirations from nature, folklore, ceremonial music and avant-garde, SVIN transcends the genre borders in music and continues to surprise listeners throughout the album.
SVIN has performed at festivals such as Roskilde Festival, Eurosonic and by:Larm and has during the recent years toured extensively all over Europe, Russia and the Balkans. Part of the programme “The Young Artistic Elite” from 2019 - 2021 supported by The Danish Arts Foundation.
