references to open, curious soundscapes, in instrumental songs equally inspired by a sleepless, metropolitan lifestyle and the calmness of rural Denmark.
In the last couple of years, the Aarhus based quartet has proven to be one of the strongest new acts on the Danish scene for instrumental music. The 2016 release of the bands debut album, Pletter På Solen
(Sunspots), led to great attention from a growing audience, concerts at the biggest jazzfestivals in Denmark, raving reviews from the press and steady rotation on Danish National Radio (DR-P8). In the
beginning of 2017, Røgsignal
has been touring all over Denmark, including packed shows at major venues in Aarhus and Copenhagen.
“The band’s sound has been described as fusion jazz incorporating different sounds and influences from Denmark and the wider world of music. It works like magic…”
- Nick Davies, All About Jazz. June 2017 about Pletter På Solen
.”It has become something of a craze in danish jazz, or improvisational music overall, this musical cocktail where you're left with the feeling of listening to instrumental indierock, but at the same time, a brand new, progressive jazz record”
- Frederik Korfix, DR P8 Jazz (Danish National Radio). September 2016.
