members of Lod formed after graduating school in Copenhagen, inspired by the
post-punk that was prominent in the fervent, close-knit music community of the city.
The first version of Lod was very much birthed in this same shadow: loud and heavy.
With time their sound began to rely less on distortion, foregoing aggression for a
greater focus on melody and rhythm. Bands like LCD Soundsystem, Suicide and
Kraftwerk provided further inspiration and it became an ambition for Lod to create
music that - while never taking the easy route - could make people dance. With
their debut EP, released via London-based label Tough Love, they have very much
achieved this. They're a dance band, in the same way one might consider NEU a
dance band. 24-minute, four song debut EP sung in Danish. You might consider it
uncompromising were the songs not so accessible.
