THROES + THE SHINE (AO/PT)
Friday 05.07.13 - 02:00 - Cosmopol
Rockuduro, Throes + The Shine call their debut record, the title offers a good description of a brand new music genre: A surprising rendezvous between alternative guitar rock and kuduro, the up-tempo dance music of Angola. This double band is a fully organic mashup introducing the song and rap of kuduro on top of guitar tones and drums from bearded indie kids. Throes + The Shine may be one of the first African-sounding dance bands to appear naturally along with American acts like Battles and HEALTH, as they’ve done in the past.
Label: Lovers & Lollypops / Import
Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
