“An unpolished vocal, a highly personal musical expression and Danish texts on a most distinguished level”

These were the words of Kim Skotte from the Danish paper Politiken, after the release of Mouritz’s latest EP album ‘The last day and the first’ from 2013.

Mads is a contemporary troubadour and musician. He made his debut with the album ‘This chaos called love’ in 2004 and since 2007 has published three seminal albums with the band Mouritz / Hørslev project. With songwriting partner, author Lone Hørslev, he has toured Denmark playing in everything from community centers and churches to the Roskilde Festival and the Danish Radio Concert Hall.

With 7 different publications behind him, Mads Mouritz is now working towards his actual debut in Danish, which is expected to be released in the summer of 2016.

Mads Mouritz played a concert for the Free BunkerLove Festival 2014 in Furreby near Løkken. In 2015 he gave a concert at the Landshape Festival in Hanstholm on BunkerLove’s initiative. For the BunkerLove Festival 2016 Mads Mouritz will create the music program.

Heartstarter

Danish band Nephew made an ode to the North Sea named Hjertestarter (Vææææsterhav, kom nu og blæs mig i gang) and recorded their music video right where the BunkerLove festival was held (their mike). The song is about being deaf, dumb and blind and in need of the stormy ocean to get blown away. Tear down the old and useless to make room for more salt, more malt, more zest to the whole thing.

“Do you know a cure for me?”

“Why yes,” he said, “I know a cure for everything. Salt water.”

“Salt water?” I asked him.

“Yes,” he said, “in one way or the other. Sweat, or tears, or the salt sea.”

Mikael K for BunkerLove ♫

“I am sick and tired of hearing about the Danish outskirts as ‘a rotten banana’, if anything it’s a ‘cultural banana’, and Bunkerlove sets that image on fire! I shot a video in the Furreby area, this place must be visited and seen, and what better context than one that flips the gloomy images of the bunkers. I am on this bandwagon 100%”

says Danish singer and songwriter Mikael K of Klondyke. We are THRILLED that he will play at the Bunkerlove Festival chill on July 15… Mark your calendar, and stay tuned!

‘I mit Nirvana’ (My Nirvana) is the opening track on Mikael K & Klondyke‘s most recent album: Udkantsland – sange fra skæve Danmark vol.1 (Fringe country – songs from crooked Denmark vol.1). THANK YOU!
