Mid-April music: Vinnie this guy

Vinnie Who
Sat April 18, 21:00; Lille Vega; 170kr

SINCE first appearing on the Danish pop scene in the early ‘10s, the Copenhagen-made band have offered a contemporary reworking of disco-pop.

Paired with Bagge’s charismatic appeal – complete with his distinctively effeminate vocals and androgynous style of dress – the group went on to become one of the youngest acts to appear on Roskilde’s sacred Orange Stage in 2013.

Having since moved away from the comfort of disco, the release of their new single ‘Seven’ represents an intriguing new frontier for a band that made the cover of last month’s issue of Soundvenue.

Not to be confused with the R ‘n’ B singer Cody, Cyrus hails from the traditional school of jazz piano. Active since the early ‘90s, he’s most noted for his playful blending of styles across the genre.
