Under Byen

October 8, 2008

Wow- I don’t know what these guys have been under but how have I never heard of Under Byen?

Wonderful dreamy vocals with dark ambient sounds and reminiscent of a few groups I have come to love this year like Efterklang and Halves. Their list of band members and instruments on wiki reads like a wish list for me and they even have a cellist! They have 4 albums and 3 eps so I have some catching up to do.

Head over to Rcrd Lbl to download four of their tunes and check out their official site…but be warned this is addictive stuff!

Af Samme Stof Som Stof



  1. Funny… the band is older than Efterklang and in the early days of Efterklang they always cited Under Byen as an influence. 🙂

    If you need to know more about the band here’s a good ressource…

    Great to see people still finding the band. I’ve been on them for ten years now. Never boring. 🙂


  2. Thanks Lars- yeah saw the dates on their disography which is how I am surpised I missed them! Halves is younger yet again and only around a year and a bit…all great music:-)
