Over the last few years, the Danish music scene has risen drastically (as if we didn’t know) and a number of acts have broken outside of the country’s borders, amongst them the electronic trio AV AV AV. Comprised of friends, August “ELOQ” Fenger, Anders “Unkwon” Dixen and Martin “Dj Er Du Dum Eller Hvad” Skovbjerg, the trio started out with no expectations. One EP and a Critic’s Choice Award later, AV AV AV have received international recognition for their crisp electronic sound infused with house beats.
The trio’s latest release, “Habitat”, is the second single from the forthcoming “Everything is True” EP (dropping 10th March!) and has already been dubbed “the sound of the future.” The energetic track embraces acoustic elements that are perfectly fused with electronic beats and multi-layered soundscapes.
Why the name AV AV AV?
It means “ouch ouch ouch” in Danish, and it’s a phrase we frequently use when something is really nice. Like “Damn, this is good.”
Sum up your sound in 5 words?
Dynamic, melodic, electronic, organic and our own word: mellowhard.
Can you tell us about the electronic scene in Denmark?
As a very small country, everyone knows everyone in the scene here! And everyone is very prone to collaborate and/or help each other out! Ranging from techno to trap, everything is pretty well represented here with a lot of amazing artists trying to push every corner of the genre in our own Nordic way.
How do you think your upcoming EP, “Everything is True”, differs from your debut EP?
We became older, wiser and better! Soundwise, we think it fits perfectly in the AV AV AV universe. With a lot of feelings and emotions put into our sound palette. Mellowhard!
