Since forming in 2014 Klimaforandringer has put out two full-length records gaining positive attention national as well as international. The Band has played all over Denmark including festivals Ujazz and CPH Jazzfestival. Klimaforandringer plays noisy afro-rock with a multitude of other inspirations such as blues, krautrock, jazz and world music
Klimaforandringer (the Danish term for climate change) is a sextet assembled around various musical concepts stemming from various corners of the world. As a result, this caravan’s pulsating compositions contain multiple layers of everything from West African polyrhythm to Western 70’s psychedelic guitars. The orchestra’s members have gathered across different latitudes of the Danish music scene and have ties to diverse acts such as SVIN, Bisse, Under Byen, and Horse Orchestra. As the unit Klimaforandringer they collect and transform far-reaching inspiration into unpredictable afro psych with elements from acid rock, kraut, and improv.
The compositions are complex, but the contemplative lyrics penned in Danish and structured as simple, haiku-like stanzas about universal topics pull the band’s global views down to earth. Greatly inspired by African attitudes towards making music and poetry, the communication of themes such as sense of belonging and the transitoriness of life is a joint affair.
