Malmö-based RA is yet further proof that Copenhagen is not the only Scandinavian city that can turn out that sought-after ‘nordic noir’ punk. The band, who recently played at Roskilde Festival and Copenhagen Psych Fest, formed in 2012. Their music is dark, driven by guitar and bass and likened to acts like Brian Jonestown Massacre. Ra has released both and 10″ and a 7″ records and will be releasing their debut album in mid 2015.
RA’s latest release is entitled “Remixes” and features, appropriately enough, remixes from Trentemøller, Noe Spagato, Myth and Bam Spacey. It was released on vinyl on the first of December (it will be released on digital the 29th of December). The first single is called “Prism (Trentemøller remix)” .
