Only those with hearts as black as coal or as cold as arctic ice could refrain from feeling an ounce of emotion while watching this. Radio Klassisk in Copenhagen brought a little dose of serenity and beauty to traveling commuters in Copenhagen by setting the Copenhagen Phil (Sjællands Symfoniorkester) loose on a train.
In a town where even your local bank branch hangs designer lights, and the high street has everything a product nerd could hope for, it’s hard to imagine you might still find some hidden gems. Fortunately, in Copenhagen, this is not the case.
Copenhagen band Joe and Honey released the Heart Beast EP in January. As a follow up, they now premier the music video Fever. Filmed in a Copenhagen apartment, the video portrays a universe of sensual needs and supressed identities.
