Søn takes over Pumpehuset for what will be the band's biggest and most ambitious headliner to date
"We are very much looking forward to exploring the music and emotions live together with the audience. It is most often on stage that it is all the strongest and most intense for us. Pumpehuset will be our biggest and most ambitious headliner to date, and we hope people are ready to help elevate this November evening into something very special. In any case, we're going to do our best to create a big, enveloping and redemptive show."
Since the Copenhagen group Søn debuted in 2019 with the album "Det Skandinaviske Design", they have established with surprising live concerts and circle-kicking lyrics that Søn is something special. In 2020, the band released their second studio album, "Danish Crown", which garnered critical acclaim and was placed on several annual lists; Among other things, at Politiken, who named the album the 6th best Danish album of the year and gave it 5 hearts with the words: "It's been a long time since such an electric contact between Danish indie rock and lyricism has been made, as is the case these years. Nowhere is this more evident than at Søn.”
On stage, Søn is flexible, exuberant and known for blowing the audience away. In his 2.5 meter long dress with electric movements and relatable lyrics, frontman Kristoffer Jessen is hard to take your eyes off, and Søn's shows have become a phenomenon, recognized time and time again by 5 and 6 star reviews from the Danish media.
In 2022, Søn released the two single releases "Ka Ik Connect" and "HD Sol", both of which played directly in A-rotation on DR P6 and presented a more organic and electronic soundscape than before. The band's third album was produced in collaboration with Søren Buhl, who, together with Carl-Erik, Jonathan, Kristoffer, Søren and William, has created a sound universe that is full of textures and enveloping atmospheres, while also being progressive and immediate.
On their latest single, "Mrs. President", Søn fires a bullet of lovelorn grief that is fired with characteristic unpredictability from Søn's own clearing on the Danish pop rock scene.
“If you were to boil "Mrs. President" down to a bouillon cube, it would crumble. It doesn't connect logically. It contains both the sad, the playful, the revealing and the mysterious. It's the punch of a lot of random liquids that you drink for a birthday, when you feel sad, but still up for something," says lead singer Kristoffer Jessen.
