Hearing Danish duo PRISMA‘s new single ‘Seven Greedy Girls’ for the first time I instantly wanted to listen again.  A joyous slice of electronica which operates at a high tempo from the get go.  Full of positivity it is a blast of energy, and the band expand on the inspiration behind this track:

“We wanted to describe a state of mind where your body is overwhelmed by anxiety – this is the ‘seven greedy girls’ who are scratching and screaming on the inside of your eyes.  They live in your head but through the song, you break free from this negative feeling.  In the chorus, we scream “come on/fuck off” which is very descriptive of this feeling of being cursed by something really bad”.

We simply needed to find out more about PRISMA.

Welcome PRISMA and congratulations on new single ‘Seven Greedy Girls’.
Could you introduce yourselves and describe how PRISMA came together?

Thank you so much.  It is so nice to share this single with all of you. We’re a Danish duo, sisters, Frida and Sirid.
PRISMA started in our rooms back when we were teenagers. We started to listen to rock music when we were 13 and 15 years old. We fell head over heels in love with the noisy rock sound and distorted guitars. We have always played music together because we went to a Waldorf School in Odense, where we played classical flute and clarinet and played in large orchestras. But when we started to play guitar and bass everything changed. We added our voices and harmonies on top of the noisy sound and it was an incredible experience for both of us. And then we have been playing together since.
Our first project was called Hauhii and when we moved to Copenhagen we started from scratch and changed the name to PRISMA.


Your new EP Inside Out is set for release on 8 April via Luna Sky Recordings. What can we expect from the EP?  Where did the inspiration come from?

Our EP Inside Out is a very special piece for us.  We made it pretty fast and the only rule was that there were no rules.  The songs are songs about anxiety, cutting off relations and choosing a new and healthy path.  We recorded it while we were releasing our first EP which was very melancholic and cinematic.  That process took years and we wanted to kick off some energy and created Inside Out pretty fast.  We wanted it to be very raw, rock, punk vibes with beautiful harmonies on top.

To be honest we know very little of the Danish music scene. Could you tell us a little more about it.  Is it vibrant and supportive of new bands?  Are there independent venues and opportunities to play live?

The Danish music scene is evolving all the time.  It is currently very interesting.  We follow the indie and rock scene most and don’t know how the pop scene is doing.  But the alternative scene is great.  We live in Copenhagen which is very supporting and as an upcoming band you have quite good opportunities to find a venue to play.  We also started out by playing smaller venues in Copenhagen.  People are turning up as well, very supportive young people in Denmark.

There is also small festivals around Denmark that only focus on upcoming bands which is so cool. Because you need these venues and festivals to climb the ladder, you know.

How are you feeling about the opportunity to play in the UK, particularly after the turmoil of the last couple of years?

We are so excited about releasing our music in the UK. We hope to go there and play showcases and concerts – that would be so cool.  We have been wanting to go to the UK for a while now, but the situation the last few years has made it very tough for us.  But now when everything is open and we can travel again, we are definitely coming for you.

What are your plans for the rest of 2022? Do you have any more live dates scheduled?

Our 2022 will be amazing. We have a fully booked summer in Denmark, Sweden and some shows in Norway as well. It is so nice to play at those summer festivals around Denmark. We love playing festivals. And then we will be going on our first headliner tour in Denmark, which is very cool. And then maybe we will be releasing more music, who knows?

If I looked in your fridge right now what would I find?

You would definitely find ketchup in Fridas fridge and humus in Sirids, haha.
