The up-and-coming New Yorker band is ready to revisit Denmark with new music this autumn, bringing their world-class synthpop to Pumpehuset in Copenhagen on September 18.
Nation of Language has gained momentum since their acclaimed introduction on the big music scene with the debut album Introduction Presence from 2020. The album garnered fine words from several of the world's prominent music media such as Fader, Stereogum and NME, for the band's fresh, danceable and passionate take on new wave and post-punk. With frontman Ian Devaney's unmistakable vocals in concert with soaring melodies and aspirational notes, Nation of Language creates masterful synthpop international class.
On top of the fantastic reception of the debut album, Nation of Language have not let their momentum die, but instead released another full-length album in 2021, A Way Forward, which, in line with its predecessor, cemented the band's position as one of the synth-pop masters of the time: “ It can't have been an easy task bettering their debut offering, but Nation of Language have here – and, in turn, they've delivered a true modern-day classic of the synth-pop genre.” – NME.
Most recently, the band released their new single "Sole Obsession" in March 2023, which is a precursor to their upcoming new studio album Strange Disciple, which will be released this summer and will be the start of their biggest headline tour to date. Danish fans can therefore also start looking forward to a new visit from Nation of Language, when they bring their acclaimed and high-energy live show and new music to Pumpehuset on 18 September.
