Roskilde Festival 2016 has started and from today on you can listen to some outstanding upcoming artists warming up for a week-long celebration of music, summer and life. One of the must-see (warm-up) acts at this year’s Roskilde Festival is sweet indie pop duo Shy shy shy.
Good because Danish has been following the band ever since the release of their gentle and charming debut single “Do Not Ask” not even two years ago. Thus, it’s great to see how far this young, likeable duo got already. Playing Roskilde Festival, how cool is that?! So cool that you definitely should be there for Shy shy shy’s show tomorrow: Monday, 27. June – 15:30 – Rising.
In order to introduce the duo, Good because Danish asked Astrid Cordes and Simon Kjeldgaard about what we can expect of their show and what favourite memory they have of Roskilde Festival.
How would you describe Shy shy shy’s music to someone who has never heard it before?
Male / female playful indiepop duo with unison vocals, colourful synthsizers and determined guitars.
Do you have anything special planned for the Roskilde show?
We have some surprises up our sleeves. But let’s keep them there until Monday. Come see our show ;-)
Are you a Roskilde-virgin or Roskilde-veteran?
First time Astrid went to Roskilde Festival was in 2004. Simon in 2008. That’ll make Astrid the veteran and Simon more of a rookie.
What’s your favourite Roskilde Festival memory?
Simon: The Paul McCartney show on last year’s Roskilde Festival was something really special for me. The Beatles is beyond comparison the band I’ve listened to the most so it was truly amazing to see him perform some of my all time favourite songs.
How would you call your (imaginary) Roskilde camp?
We haven’t found out yet but there is a fair chance it’s gonna be called Camp Bus På. The name wouldn’t make much sense for non-Danish speaking people. Probably not for Danes either though.
