Thulebasen is a great discovery. Strangely, they’re almost unknown here in France even though they are incredibly talented. Nis, Felia and Niels come from Copenhagen and they have released some brilliant stuff on the brilliant Danish labels Escho and Tambourhinoceros. Their music is kind of indefinable as it’s rich, experimental and melodic, in the same line as bands as Deerhunter, for example.
Their last release is an EP, Forever Grining and it's available here.
Nis Bysted kindly answered our questions and he also told us about what they’re currently doing :
« Niels mixes music and hangs pictures at a museum, Felia goes to the art academy here in Copenhagen and I do different cultural related work. »
