Win two pairs of Copenhagen-Oslo return tickets on the DFDS ferry to see Reptile Youth on the Rock Cruise

What are you doing Friday? Ding-a-ling-a-ling, wrong answer. Why? Because you and one other are taking the DFDS ferry to Oslo to rock out with up-and-coming Danish band Reptile Youth – providing you can provide the correct answer to one of the incredibly difficult two questions below. Good luck and bon voyage!

So who are Reptile Youth? Well, according to their Facebook profile, they’re a band “so awesome” that they were signed up to play world-renowned music festivals like the Montreux Jazz Festival and Roskilde Festival before they’d even released a single track.

“Reptile Youth is a riot, a dream and a 21st century ‘f**k you dadaism movement’,” said singer Mads Damsgaard Kristiansen in a press release published by hfn Music, the band’s label.

The Danish post-pop/punk duo was formed under the name ‘Reptile and Retard’ by Kristiansen and bassist Esben Valløe in 2009. Within a year, the band were famous for completing the longest tour of China by a Danish band. In addition to playing shows around Asia and Europe, the duo recently changed their name to Reptile Youth and have been busy recording a debut release in London.

Last month, Reptile Youth released ‘Speeddance’, the lead single from their upcoming album, to critical acclaim. The song’s catchy beat, and Kristiansen’s pleas to “dance as if your hands were on fire”, forced listeners to move, while the video showed off the wild live shows for which the band are renowned.

A reviewer for music website Some Kind of Awesome said the track “is sure to have your hips swaying to their dancy-punk bass lines in a matter of seconds”.

In 2011, drummer Emil Vissing Christiensen was added to Reptile Youth’s touring band. Mads Bergland joined as a live guitarist in 2012.

With a stage presence described as “barely contained chaos” by hfn Music, their performance on the Rock Cruise this Friday (May 25) is not to be missed.
