There was no doubt that Phlake were doing something right when they came out of nothing in 2016 and won over Danish pop fans with mega hits “Pregnant” and “Angel Zoo”.
The duo, hailing from the Copenhagen suburb Albertslund, consists of singer Mads Bo Iversen and producer Jonathan Elkær and they entered the music scene with a unique style sounding nothing like what we were hearing from Danish artists at that time. In fact, most people thought they weren’t Danish at all.
Their debut record Slush Hours landed the duo no less than five awards at the Danish Music Award show in 2016 and in the years to follow, they dominated the radio charts. Actually, Phlake became the #1 most played Danish artist at popular radio station P3 in both 2016 and 2017 meanwhile longing single “The Rascal” was the most played song in Danish radio in 2018.
Phlake never stands still. Just one year after the release of their debut album, the follow-up Weird Invitationslanded, and in 2020 their third record The Illegal Download of Your Soul was released. Most recently, the duo has unleashed their fourth record Phine in October 2022 with contributions from Nigerian artist Joeboy, British rapper Che Lingo, Danish producer Vera and Denmark’s biggest new pop star Jada.
Phlake are serving hit after hit when they join us at Tinderbox 2023 with their oh-so sweet sound and smooth melodies.
