Bottled in England
Onlyfew bands get the honour of seeing their name on the poster ofRoskilde Festival two times without having released an album. Theduo, Bottled in England, who blew everyone away at the 2011 PavilionJunior scene, is an exception, as they will be part of the mainprogram at Roskilde Festival 2014. The concert will be an exquisitetaste of Bottled in England’s debut album, which will be releasedon August 11th 2014. Ina thunderstorm of face lashing beats, grooving bass and euphoricsoundscapes, Bottled in England display their unique take on modernelectronic music. The show is performed using live instruments and isdelivered with an eminent organic elegance by a brutally recklessdrummer and a dramatic theatrical bass player, who combine cinematicgreatness with a unique form of minimalistic Germantechno-equilibrium; creating an explosive cocktail. Bottled inEngland is determined that ‘live’should once again be synonymous with ‘playedby hand’ and has therefore declaredwar against heartless drum ‘n’ bass, screaming alien dubstep andthe bland bass-in-your-face attitude towards heavy bass music. With150 concerts played in anywhere from Eastern Europe to Asia, Bottledin England announced their upcoming debut album – an epic storyabout a boy trapped in the zeitgeist of our time; the flourishingcultural destitution of the youth. Bottledin England consist of drummer August Dyrborg, 24, and DanielVognstrup, 25. As the boys grew up together in the suburbs ofCopenhagen, a musical bond developed between them that wouldeventually send them on a musical journey leading through everythingfrom punk to big band music. At the end of 2009, they decided topursue new horizons and began exploring the electronic bass universe.One year passed locked in a rehearsal studio and the Bottled inEngland concept was born – the first steps were taken on thenightclub scenes around Copenhagen. Afterno more than eight concerts Bottled in England was announced forRoskilde Festival’s Pavilion Junior and managed to break therecord, according to the head of security, for the largest audienceat the upcoming scene in 2011. An amazing line-up – featuring thelikes of Silas Bjerregaard of Turboweekend – combined with numerousquotes of approval from media outlets – such as this one from theGuardian: ”Expect to be pleasantlysurprised by Bottled in England's sophisticated take on drum n' bass”– ensured Bottled in England itsrightfulplace on the map of European electronicmusic. By establishing their own record label, Structure MusicCompany, and releasing their debut EP, Believe the Hype, the duobegan touring the Danish festivals and then went on to the rest ofEurope.  Havingbuilt up a strong reputation as solid live act, the duo went on amassive tour throughout Denmark and played local events likeDistortion and SPOT Festival. The highly energetic shows got themnoticed by the German edition of Rolling Stones, among others, whowrote: ”You could dance the night awayto the drum'n'bass from the hyped Bottled in England”.  In2012 Bottled in England began working with heavy metal producer JacobHansen (Volbeat, Hatesphere, Illdisposed, etc.) and the result wasthe conceptual web release of BIE Presents #1, #2 & #3, whichincluded the critically acclaimed ‘Architect EP’ (2013) featuringTroels Abrahamsen of Danish electro rock act, VETO. Besides nationalradio, DR P6, the ‘Architect EP’ was very well received byBritish radio (BBC Radio 2, Amazing Radio and XFM (play listed bySimon Raymonde of Bella Union)) and the German radio stations (RadioFritz, 1LIVE, TIDE and Byte FM). The growing international interestwas followed by numerous shows at well acclaimed festivals such asFusion Festival (DE), Waves Vienna (AT), Sonic Visions (LU),Reeperbahn Festival (DE), Storm Festival (CN) and by:Larm (NO) ofwhich the last one mentioned marked the starting point of one of thelongest tours around China in Danish history. Bottled in Englandmarked their presence at home as well; in early 2013 with a coverstory in the biggest Danish newspaper, a sold-out concert at VEGA,and an amazing crowd at Tivoli’s Plænen. Themassive tour activity and the huge amount of attention have built upa lot of expectations for the forthcoming album (planned release dateAugust 11th2014), which will be presented at an exclusive live premiere atRoskilde Festival ’14. The album tells the story of a young man whostruggles to make it through a life filled with demands, expectationsand wasted opportunities. This causes him to descend through adownward spiral of intoxication, and as he plunges deeper into thedarkness he starts to reject the people who love him. In the endthere is only one way out – death Bottledin England’s BOY/LOST features a unique universe of sound, whichcarries the listener through a tragic story told with the utmostdelicacy, as we get to know our main characters deepest feelings andemotions. The music is grand, but minimalistic; aesthetic, yetbrutal; inspired by the mechanical music’s static evolvement;nevertheless containing a certain amount of uncompromising attitudetowards the balance between the organic and the industrial. Bottledin England’s new release is an outstanding piece that presentseverything from symphonic arrangements and big band brass to hardcorebeats and wobble bass. Additionally, Kirstine Stubbe Teglbjærg ofBlue Foundation will be adding some extra kick with her exceptionalvoice, as she will be featured on the 2ndsingle, the electronic pop-step ballad; ‘Never Be Apart’
