January Jaunt

About January Jaunt: January Jaunt is another term for the mental state of mind that comes along with the beginning of a new year – a state filled with hope, melancholy and resolutions. It´s also the name for one of the most interesting and original new danish up&coming bands.

With a mixture of complex Indie-rock, Elektronica, Noise and wide-range singing on top, January Jaunt are expressing this season through their music. They have been compared to bands such as Mercury Rev, Flaming Lips, U2 and Radiohead, but it must be kept in mind that they have a unique style of their own, where they push the limits and propel the songs in all possible and directions, in their search for the perfect melody.

Already 2 months after releasing their first demo "TheButtonThatStoleOurChildren” (04), Denmark’s biggest and most respected Music-magazine GAFFA, chose this new Danish rock-act to be “Demo of the month”. In a 5/5 star review, superlatives like “Great songs in surprising compositions, makes this the best demo I have ever heard” and “A self-assured band with a clear vision” were used! When the same magazine – in January – made their list of “They are going to make it BIG in 2005” there was an obvious place for January Jaunt.

Since then the band has been busy making their name in the music business. Successful live-gigs all over Denmark and Germany, airplay on danish national radio P3, and more great reviews, are all things which have helped them to achieve their goal.

The band was founded by Songwriter/Bass-Player Leif Nielsen in the winter of 2003, the first to join the band was drummer Rune Weidemann, then Stig M?rk on Guitar and last Ole Gundahl on Vocal/Guitar.
