IGYOT is without a doubt, one of the absolute heavyweights on the thriving Copenhagen indie scene. The band is a veritable “all-star team” of acclaimed musicians from the Copenhagen indie, jazz and underground scene, united by a unique tone of voice and an exquisite sense of taste. The music of IGYOT is a masterful combination of alt. rock and art pop. The songs are slow, brooding and mesmerizing, yet superbly catchy, ranging from raw, gritty and explosive, to the somber, hymn-like and celestial. The intricate, imaginative arrangements are centered around the trademark deep, hypnotic voice of charismatic lead singer Jakob Bellens, who delivers the complex, beautifully crafted melodies and dark, thoughtful lyrics with intensity and sincerity, as well as a dead-pan sense of dry humor, lingering just below the surface. History IGYOT was formed in 2004. Releasing their self-entitled debut album in 2006 and the sequal “2” in 2007, they quickly became darlings of the music press and gained a reputation as one of the top live-acts in Denmark. Switching from Auditorium to Tigerspring, IGYOT released a remix album i 2008 and their third studio album “Spinning For The Cause” in 2009 to rave reviews. Culminating the positive response of “Spinning...”, the band won the prestigious “Main Prize” at this years “P3 GOLD” Award Show - one of the highest acclaims in the Danish music business. They played a virtually sold-out tour of Denmark spring 2010 and during the summer and fall, the band toured the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany where “Spinning For The Cause” is licensed through V2. Coming this Fall and winter, IGYOT will return to the studio to commence the recording of their 4th album.
