After being a festival since 2013, it’s weird to acknowledge we haven’t had any Danish acts on stage at Høstsabbat. Obviously our focus has been on Sweden and Norway, but we are very happy to be able to announce the second band from Denmark this year for Høstsabbat 2019. Papir is a stranger to no one, as they’ve been at the forefront of the European psychrock-scene for years. Their instrumental sound is like a sweet lullaby, with their mellow, lush and straight up beautiful soundscapes. It might sound like the biggest cliché, but with these guys, taking you on a soulful trip into a dreamlike state of mind couldn’t be more accurate.
They are releasing their new album later this year, and we are sure it will blend well into their already splendid discography, spanning almost ten years back. In addition to their studio albums, Papir are subject to fantastic live recordings, in particular the documentation of the PAPERMOON SESSION, a live collab with our friends from last year, Electric Moon.
We surely hope all of you Sabbathians look as much forward to welcoming Papir as we do.
