Mood Swings is muscling in on Copenhagen's Distortion festivities, taking influence from those playing there during the 5-day event or browsing the back catalogue of the Nordic electronic music scene.
Spring means two things: insane weather and music festivals. Since we've had quite enough of the former, let's discuss the latter.
This weekend sees Copenhagen invaded by the Distortion festival, a music festival described as 'a celebration of Copenhagen nightlife'. I notice it's all sponsored by the City of Copenhagen, and that makes me a little envious as it means that somewhere in the world there are administrations that actually do see nightlife as a real business and support it, while here all authorities ever do is hinder it but that's enough propaganda for today.
You can check out the impressive line-up and buy tickets if you're lucky enough to go on the festival's official site (http://cphdistortion.dk). If I were you I wouldn't miss the Chromatics! They don't come to Europe often at all.
Of course much emphasis is placed on Danish musicians. All of Scandinavia is famous for its electronic music, and in the past years Denmark has given us a taste of its talent with When Saints Go Machine's lovely synth-laden tunes.

The same can be said of Kenton Slash Demon. They are a young Danish duo who have gained the web's attention with only a few releases - few, but very intriguing. The video is quite hypnotic too and fits the music perfectly.
