About the band:
Pardans are fast becoming one of Denmark’s most exciting new bands.
Alumni of Copenhagen’s famous Mayhem collective, they follow in the footsteps of some of the region’s most exciting exports, including Iceage (whose live-band currently include two members of Pardans), Marching Church and Lower. However, Pardans adds a new and jazzy sound to the beloved scene by making music that shares a mentality with the 70s ‘No Wave’ scene; experimental, unconventional and utterly unique. Pardans’ new album Spit and Image is a 13-track collection of fascinating explorations into melody and rhythm that defy the norm.
Formed in 2015, Pardans has built a reputation for their frenzied sound and energetic live shows. The band blends their punk roots with elements from a multitude of genres, and a diverse array of artists such as Ornette Coleman, David Bowie, Scott Walker and Captain Beefheart come to mind when listening to Pardans.
Since the release of their debut Heaven, Treason, Women in 2016, the band have been on and off the road with Iceage and Marching Church through Europe, interspersed with headline gigs of their own, including the closing set at Copenhagen’s infamous Salon Pissoir on Christiania’s Pusher Street and writhing sets Visions Festival (UK), and Denmark’s SPOT festival and Roskilde Festival.
