SESSION: The Awesome Welles (Roskilde Rising)

in Roskilde Rising/Sessions by

Copenhagen’s newest ambassadors of brooding and theatrical indie rock may have a pun for a name, but their music is inspired by the straight-faced sincerity of bands like The National. Songs like “120” hark back to the grungy power-pop of the 90s and early 00s, whereas their newest single, “Undertaker”, – reportedly inspired by Soren Kierkegaard – sees them going for a more anthemic approach, with a very clear Scandinavian angle. Having supported the likes of Kellermensch and The Floor is Made of Lava, the Awesome Welles are poised to receive their own share of the limelight.

On a sweltering spring afternoon the trio (who play as a 5 piece live) arrived at Black Tornado studios on Refshaleøen to lead us through new single “Out Of The Woods” and two tracks “Wisdom” and “Factory” from their soon to be released debut album.
