I Got You ON Tape
IGYOT is without a doubt, one of the absolute heavyweights on the thriving Copenhagen indie scene.
The band is a veritable all-star team of acclaimed musicians from the Copenhagen indie, jazz and underground scene, united by their unique tone of voice and exquisite taste.
The music of IGYOT is a masterful combination of alternative rock and art pop. The songs are slow, brooding and mesmerizing, yet superbly catchy, ranging from raw, gritty and explosive, to the somber, hymn-like and celestial.
The intricate, imaginative arrangements are centered around the trademark deep, hypnotic voice of charismatic lead singer Jacob Bellens, who delivers the complex, beautifully crafted melodies and dark, thoughtful lyrics with intensity and sincerity, as well as a dead-pan sense of dry humor, lingering just below the surface.
IGYOT was formed in 2004. Releasing their self-entitled debut album in 2006 and the sequal “2” in 2007, they quickly became darlings of the music press and gained a reputation as one of the top live-acts in Denmark.
Switching from Auditorium to Tigerspring (housing such acclaimed acts as Choir Of Young Believers and Chimes & Bells), IGYOT released a remix album i 2008 and their third studio album “Spinning For The Cause” in 2009 to rave reviews.
Culminating the succes of “Spinning…”, the band was awarded the prestigious “Main Prize” at this years “P3 GOLD” Award Show – one of the highest acclaims in Danish music.
After wrapping a virtually sold-out summer tour of Denmark, the band did extensive touring in Europe, including Germany, Holland and Belgium, where “Spinning For The Cause” is licensed through V2.
IGYOT released a new digital single entitled “TNT” and shortly after returned to the studio to record their highly expected 4th album. The first single from the new album, wich has gotten the name ”Church on the real” is the uptempo and slightly disco orientated track ”Run from the rain”. The single was instantly made pick of the week on the biggest national radio station in DK as has been one of the most played songs in danish radio the whole summer. ”Church of the real” is beeing released in dk in september and Benelux, France and Germany soon after, and the band will tour the whole fall followed by an even bigger tour in the spring 2012.
