Background[edit]

The band consists of five childhood friends won DR's Karriekanonen in 2013.[1] The first single, "Det er Knud som er død", from their debut album, is based on a poem by the Danish journalist and writer Tom Kristensen about the Danish scientist and national hero Knud Rasmussen. The song reached first place on Det Elektriske Barometer and became P3's Uundgåelige in February 2014.[2]

Awards[edit]

In relation to their critically acclaimed debut album from May 2014, the band received numerous awards. Among others, the band won at the 2015 Årets Steppeulv for Song of the Year ("Det er Knud som er død"), as well as at the 2015 Carl Prisen for both Talent of the Year and Best Rock Songwriters of the Year. The band garnered a number of nominations as well at both Danish Music Awards (Danish Group of the Year, Best New Danish Act, Best Rock Publication), GAFFA-prisen (Best New Danish Act, Best Rock Publication) and Zulu Awards (Best New Danish Act).
