Tickets have just been handed out here at Crunchy HQ and we have had the Roskilde playlist on repeat for a very, very long time now. Shiny Darkly has gone under ground to prepare for their concert. We are unpleasantly excited and we can’t wait to see all of you out there in the beautiful, beautiful muuuuud.
SHINY DARKLY x TUESDAY 3/7 x 17:30 x PAVILION JR x RSVP
”One of the more dynamic rock bands in the Danish underground at this very moment must be the Copenhagen trio Shiny Darkly. The Warm-Up offers many good concerts with upcoming bands, but if you have to point out one, the choice must fall upon Shiny Darkly (…) the trio is already digging their way up the mould of the underground to a larger audience. It is no wonder if the band is a part of the »real« Roskilde line up next year, but there is no excuse not to see them during this year’s Warm-Up.”
ALL SCANDINAVIAN as well
“Despite only having an EP with six tracks under their belt Shiny Darkly are a hell of a live band. The Danish trio released said eponymous EP earlier this year and I have caught them live a couple of times live since then. It has been a good a experience every time. The cool youngsters play noisepop with distorted guitars, simple and mesmerizing bass lines and vocals that ooze sunglasses, leather jackets and “I don’t give a shit”-attitude. If you are into The Raveonettes, Jesus And The Mary Chain and Ian Curtis you should check them out.”
UNDERTONER includes Shiny Darkly in the “the 80’s revisited”-guide
“The Danish post punkers in Shiny Darkly (…) invites to a rock’n’roll-ball somewhere between Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Horrors anno Primary Colours Tuesday 17:30, so remember leatherjacket and sunglasses”
Luckily this is not your only chance to catch Shiny Darkly during Roskilde:
SHINY DARKLY meet’n’greet x TUESDAY 3/7 x 18:15 x SONIC ZONE x ROSKILDE CD-SHOP
The boys will answer silly question, sell their debut EP and kiss your cheek after the concert.
SHINY DARKLY feat. KLASHY x WEDNESDAY 4/7 x 22:50 x SONIC ZONE
With their drummer heading back to US after the show, last two men standing will team up with a DJ from the Klashy Collective and give you an alternative version of Shiny Darkly. Crazy, yes. Crazy, good. More about Klashy right here.
Besides this Shiny Darkly will be on P6 Beat tune in and catch the boys just before the show Tuesday (around 15:20), afterwards Roskilde Festival Radio will follow-up (around 19). So there’s even a little bit of Shiny Darkly for those of you who for some reason aren’t present. Keep an eye on WIMP and Gaffa for more shiny dark news.
Okay. Nothing more to say.
Remember. Tuesday. 17:30.
SEE YOU AT ROSKILDE ’12!
