Scarlet Pleasure - Deja-Vu

It’s been more than a year since Danish funk-pop band Scarlet Pleasure released their debut album “Youth Is Wasted On The Young” and they’ve finally released their Deja-Vu new single for us to groove to.

Uyarakq x Peand-eL at SXSW 2017

Agnes Obel (DK) It was one-in-one-out at the St. David’s Sanctuary chapel for the Agnes Obel show. The venue’s acoustics are perfect for her spiritual folk music, although seeing her and her band washed in constant red lights felt sacrilegious (at best).
