Girls in Airports

Girls in Airports has been described as ‘a unique blend of Nordic jazz lyricism, indie-rock influences and sounds from around the world’. The Danish band is famous for their captivating soundscapes crossing musical genres and geographical borders. Combining jazz, indie and urban folk into a unique expression of heart stirring, melody-laden elegiac hooks and dance-friendly, globally-influenced rhythms. Featuring five of the most distinctive and creative musicians from the Danish music scene, Girls in Airports is one of the most vital experimental ensembles in Europe. With a coherent and unique sound, their music is both absorbing and powerfully emotive. The band’s charismatic live performances have quickly made them one of the most talked about new bands on the international scene.

Based in the Danish capital, the award-winning band has released five albums and toured in the USA, China, Brazil and across Europe since their formation in 2009.

“The group’s music […] manages to be at once urban and ancient, national and transnational, modern and traditional. […] it is also a work that introduces a whole new sound.” – All About Jazz

“Like a wild forest, the music reflects life in all its colorful variety while still having a firm sense of unity. In spite of all the influences, this isn’t a postmodern patchwork of genres, but rather a timeless snapshot of natural beauty.” – Jakob Bækgaard, All About Jazz

“The band had a breathlessness and natural instinct that makes a refreshing change from the earnest approach of some bands… let’s hope they come back to play the jazz club circuit soon.“ – Jazzwise UK

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
