New signing: Yör
The band Yör is a unique fusion of poetic lyrics, sound design, and a love for communities – and they are the best-kept secret of the Danish music scene. Now they are ready with the single ‘Noget Fremmed’, which will be released on June 15th and is the first offering from their upcoming debut album.
With over 500 plays on P6 BEAT, sold-out concerts in Copenhagen, and performances at festivals such as Uhørt, Carpark, and New Note, they have already made a name for themselves. And they have actually been on their way for quite some time. Before they even played their first concert and released their debut EP “I Virkeligheden” in 2021, they had spent more than 2 years together in the rehearsal room and are a very compound band.
Yör consists of singer and sound designer Marie Kildebæk, drummer Lasse Jacobsen, bassist Janus Bagh, and synth and sound designer Viktor Dahl. They have known each other since their early teenage years from boarding schools, MGK, and high school, and came together in their shared musical space in 2019. With respective parallel careers as composers for award-winning theater productions, documentaries, podcasts, and, not least, as live musicians for artists like eee gee and Selina Gin, Yör is composed of some fantastic creative talents. Together, they create a completely unique sound and feeling in a universe that combines the intimate and delicate with the raw and pulsating.
Singer Marie’s crystal-clear vocals tell stories of suddenly feeling alienated from those you love, of failed communication, and of growing up and having to choose what kind of adult you want to be. All of this is set to raw synth textures and pulsating rhythms and bass.
Now, Yör is ready to embark on a new era with the release of their debut album, which is planned for the late autumn of 2023. Before that, substantial teasers from the album will be released in the form of a series of singles throughout the summer and autumn, starting with the dazzling ‘Noget Fremmed’.
