Free musical framework is an essential characteristic of Thulebasen. In the early days, the band focused on the free improvisation, but over time, the music has increasingly become compositions that explore the boundaries of alternative rock. Last year, Thulebasen returned after a long hiatus with the album Suko! The band consists of Nis Bysted, Niels Kristian Eriksen and Felia Gram-Hansen.

Collider’s universe is based on the paranormal and out-of-body experiences. In what could be described as an illogical approach to music, Collider brings together various forms of alternative rock in their own fusion. Lively, expressive and noisy playing style unites with melodic vocals. Collider’s music creates a new, fragmented way of thinking rock.
