    Hurts have Faith in the Darkest Hour

    The British electro-pop outfit, Hurts, called the autumn 2020 by releasing their fifth studio album. The album is called 'Faith', and in its essence this is what its all about. 11 spectacular tracks – all circling in the area between isolation and depression and the sincere hope of spring and light at the end. At Latebar we like this – a lot in fact. And here is why.

    These Little Things by Kershaw

    It as been almost eight years since the pop virtuoso, Nik Kershaw, has released a new studio album. As a fun little curiosity that album was ... Eight! Now he is back. Kershaw will be releasing his ninth round piece of musical magic this autumn, and judged by the EP precursor 'These Little Things', the brit has something really interesting in store for us.

    The return of the Alphabeat

    It has been almost seven years since the Danish indie-pop outfit, Alphabeat, toured with a new album. They 'Don't Know What's Cool Anymore' they say. We beg to differ, and though much remains the same, some has changed. The 'Fantastic 6' appear stronger, more mature and far, far better than ever before.

    George Ezra spread stardust over Jelling

    With a set of truly amazing songs George Ezra totally and utterly managed to set the mood for the entire Jelling Festival 2019. To make music able to please party-starving Scandinavians and satisfy the music feinschmeckers is quite a task. However, Ezra's delivery was sublime and very, very well played.

    A surprisingly cold evening in May turned significantly less so for 12,000 assembled spectators in the Danish city of Horsens. The American superstar, Lenny Kravitz, paid the venue 'Faengslet' a visit, offering warm-heartedness and a catalogue full of extremely well-played songs – new and old.

    The Grenadines – that Band on the Radio

    The latest Danish outfit to have received positive attention by sifting a bit of folk seasoning into their songwriting is 'The Grenadines'. On 16 November 2018 the band, currently touring the country as warm-up for fellow Danish internationals, Carpark North, released their second, and less folky, album - 'Band On The Radio'. A collection of rich and sometimes even luscious pop/rock tunes.

    Sting propelled by a Fiction Plane

    What was to be one more name on the growing list of international superstars visiting the exclusive open air venue, Molleparken, in Sonderborg, Denmark, quickly became two. British icon Sting brought with him the next generation of Sumners. His oldest son, Joe, is now an established name in this region, for sure.

    In Jelling we are all Majesties

    As always there is an abundance of impressions left after Jelling Musikfestival. Marking the beginning of festival season in Denmark it draws a lot of attention. And as always far most fully acts live up to expectations - as do the festival itself. Even the heightened security measures this year did not impede the joy for the 35,000 guests. Bravo! However, one thing will stand out as the event we at the Latebarblog will remember the 2017 festival by.
