Nephew

 

Info

Nephew is a Danish rock band, formed in 1996, in Aarhus. They had their breakthrough in 2004 with the release of their second album USADSB. The release coincided with lead singer Simon Kvamm's highly successful appearances on Danish television in the cult comedy show Drengene fra Angora, which helped boost the band's popularity.

The band uses an unusual mixture of Danish and English in their lyrics; they started singing mostly in English with just a few Danish lyrics, but gradually, they have been using Danish more frequently in their songs. In 2009, when interviewed and asked about the language mix, frontman Kvamm said: "It's important for me to use the Danish kind of English that I speak...my mother tongue Danish, and my second language English, are very present to me in thinking and talking and speaking with others, and writing. Also in songwriting. And things just take form in one of those languages, or a mixture in between them. I can't really find a system to what goes the English way and what goes the Danish."[1] The band considers Depeche Mode as one of its major influences.[citation needed] Around 2004-2005, a mix of Nephew's "Movie Klip" and Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus" appeared. It was later revealed that the mix was made by René Munk Thalund.
