How does it feel to watch the horrors of the World from the comfort of the happiest country on Earth?
This is the central question being put into song by the Danish dark country band Bound by Law. The band is made up of Mads Wilhjelm (vocals/guitar), his long time friends the brothers Jon Rahbek (harmonica/piano) and Jess Rahbek (guitar/banjo) and their manager Maria Moni.
Combining American roots music with a critical Scandinavian songwriting tradition, Bound by Law sings about the modern day outlaws as being the international banks, the oil industry and warmongering politicians as the darker sides of human civilization are being exposed.
After breaking into the the international dark country scene on Spotify quickly building a growing international following, Bound by Law was invited to America to play as nominees at Texas Sounds International Country Music Awards in October 2018 where they proceeded to win the award for 'Original Song of The Year'.
A review of Bound by Law’s showcase at SPOT Festival 2019 written by 'Artists in the Spotlight' read:
“Bound by Law put on a mind-bogglingly intense show. It was definitely the highlight of SPOT 2019 and will forever be the standard to which I hold live performances in the future. Well done, gentlemen! A word of advice: DO NOT pass up a chance to see Bound by Law live. Even if country music isn’t your “thing”, these guys will blow your mind!”
