ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After having lived on/off in both Washington DC and San Francisco for more than 8 years, Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Gustav Niepoort, definitively returned to his native Denmark in 2002 with the intend to form a band.

Here he teamed up with childhood friends, drummer/programmer, Janus Dyg and bassist Peter Binau Hoej and quickly began recording what was to become Niepoort’s first EP. Two EP’s and one full length album later, the trio has garnered favorable reviews in Denmark and build a loyal following. Where Niepoort’s music, LIVE, is raw and energetic, with concerts lasting as long as 4 hours, Niepoort’s latest studio album “Serpentine” is a meticously recorded and produced affair.

Denmarks largest music magazine, GAFFA, wrote about ”Serpentine”

“The production is excellent, with guitar riffs as the cutting musical base, Gustav Niepoort’s voice dark and hypnotic on top, while the keyboards (synths and organs) add a cinematic dimension, without ever dominating”

Adding “The album spans from night-electro on Balance, to a dramatic semi-futuristic Bowie inspired Pioneers, to the anthem Chalk farm…a thorough release”

Although Niepoort’s music have touched many genres trough the years, the music created by the trio can best be described as folktronica infused artrock with a decisive groove - Impressive sly drumming, catchy dubby basslines, cutting guitars and sonic landscapes with Gustav Niepoort’s impressive baritone vocal and poetic lyrics always present on top.

Apart from creating music on their own, the band runs its own music studio in Copenhagen, The Keiner Niemand Facility, as well as its own record label, Free Movement records.
