Blood Child class themselves as “Punk poets” and they certainly don’t hold back, no punches pulled. The band features brothers Emil Bertelsen and Mads Bertelsen, plus Hjalte Ross, Marikka Katrina Hoejen Jørgensen and Lasse Dybdahl Krüger.
Their sound consists of equal parts raw beauty and brutal intensity, and will leave you blissfully heart torn. They say they are “A high-power bruising experience, yet at the same time soaking you in black velvety sounds.”
Denmark’s Blood Child take their inspiration from a combination of the late 70s New York/London Punk scene and 90s Alt Rock but are constantly adding a highly captivating and hard-to-pinpoint personal component.
In the past few years the band have made appearances at the highly acclaimed SPOT Festival, RECession Festival and Sorte Firkant Festival in Aarhus and Copenhagen, also at Sørveiv Festival in Norway. They’ve played many venues around Denmark and most recently a mini-tour with The Entrepreneurs.
The band released their first single ‘Shivers Home’ in May 2019, which appears on this EP which is being released on the Copenhagen based label NESM on September 13th. The EP has been produced and mixed by Jens Ramon, (Figurines, Choir of Young Believers, Gooms), and mastered by Aske Zidore (Oh No Ono, Gooms, An Gella).
Blood Child will be touring Denmark and Europe in late Summer, Autumn in conjunction with the release of the EP and will be appearing at Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg and Uhoert Festival in Copenhagen.
Confident Silence (Radio Edit) – Released as a single on August 16th
About the song: “Confident Silence is a song that means a lot for us. I think it was the first song that we wrote all together in the band. So it’s a very old song that has been through many stages. The song is about being suppressed by a system that constantly expects you to succeed”
