"An absolutely rockin' Danish outfit using material from extreme noise, free jazz and creative rock to build a sound and energy that is giving new perspectives on alternative music! Inyourface and without compromises!" - Mats Gustafsson
Selvhenter are part of the art collective eget værelse and have already been active for 8 years,
Selvhenter honed a truly unique sound - an uncompromising, boundless energetic one that blends the aesthetics of experimental rock, the sophistication of improvised free jazz and the aggressiveness of punk, noise and metal, all performed with passion and humor, sometimes even as music fit for dancing.
The all-women quintet Selvhenter is part of the bustling and sprawling Copenhagen underground. In a controlled eruption of two drumkits and distorted trombone, violin and alto saxophone they kick against rationalism of the welfare society - and show us that passion doesn’t have to be sung, but can flourish as collective instrumental cramps.
In December 2014 Selvhenter released their latest album "Motions of Large Bodies".
