Danish all-female quartet Selvhenter is using material from extreme noise, free jazz and creative rock to build a sound and energy that is giving new perspectives on alternative music.
The energy of rock with free improvisation and noise and is quickly becoming one of the most exciting new experimental bands in Europe.
Explosive textures are being provided by the horns, both being played through huge amplifiers and a variety of foot pedals to guarantee a maximum of distortion, a massive sound being propelled by the two powerhouse drummers.
