THERE are a handful artists from Denmark that have injected the UK with merry pop melodies. Remember Alphabeat and Aqua? Nevertheless, May see’s the UK release of Giana Factory’s debut album Save The Youth, a dark, melodic and electronic wave of goodness from a Danish all girl trio.
Absent of all Barbie’s and candy colours Giana Factory are Loui Foo (vocals, drum pads), Sofie Johanne (bass, synth) and Lisbet Fritze (guitar) and combine gloomy synths, crisp electronic percussion, atmospheric guitars and refreshing melodies.
They have been creating their own unique brand of dark pop since 2008, but it’s not all doom and gloom in the girl’s world. Album track Mountain and latest single Rainbow Girl inject light and colour through their minimal electronic sound. Their first show was in front of a sell out crowd supporting scottish rockers Glasvegas, an atmosphere they should start becoming accustom to.
Whilst we’re impatiently waiting for tour dates download their debut album Save The World available May 7th and watch the hypnotic video for Rainbow Girl below.
