Late-August Music: Christopher walking tall, twerking it like Miley

Christopher
Fri Aug 19, 21:30; Tivoli, entry included with admission

A dominant force in the Danish charts, Christopher’s fans might mostly be teenage girls, but he is an earnest soul well beyond his 24 years, which might explain why he dated Medina, ten years his senior, for a couple of years.

His most famous hit, ‘CPH Girls’ was ever-present on Danish radio stations last year.

He is also known for his collaboration with American rapper Brandon Beal on the tune ‘Twerk it like Miley’.

The singer will be promoting his latest singles and album, released in April, so why not check him out and integrate into the local pop music scene.

His catchy rap lyrics were played all over Denmark last year, and this summer Emil Stabil is gracing Copenhagen with an appearance. Time to sing along to ‘Er det en Fugl’ (is it a bird?). And the answer’s no, it’s superman.

A veteran of 10 years in the industry, this Swedish pop artist of Italian origin slings it to the boys with tracks like ‘Dumpa mig’ (dump me), ‘Nöjd?’ (satisfied?) and ‘Jag kommer’ (I’m coming). Since dropping her latest album, she’s dyed her hair blue to complement her language.

The New York-born indie rock singer is heading to Denmark to promote her latest album Next Thing. As the daughter of luvvies Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates, her creativity is evident. Standout tracks include ‘Much ado about fucking’ and ‘Birth of penis’.
