Girls in Airports

The band name is misleading: the Danish quartet Girls in Airports actually consists only of male musicians. But – the name is also guiding, as it brings to mind Brian Eno’s ambient masterpiece Music for Airports. And Eno is one of the references that is usually mentioned when someone describes Girls in Airport’s music.

Like All About Jazz magazine that listed Eno alongside King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Donny McCaslin (on Bowie’s Blackstar). One could add Radiohead, Jan Garbarek and Sun Ra. Or you only note that Girls in Airports make a restrained jazz that seeks harmonies and moods of the quieter kind – and at the same time bakes in electronic soundscapes and indie-pop melancholy melodies.

According to Orkester Journalen’s reviewer this band is at its best live. Now it’s time for them to do it on the Fasching stage.
