The newest indie label on the scene has a moniker that conjures up wicked mental images of happy tambourine playing rhinoceroses. Founded by Kristoffer Rom and Aske Zidore of Danish indie popsters Oh No Ono, Copenhagen-based Tambourhinoceros has three releases to date, with a few more on deck for the summer.

The first was the airy and acoustic folksy debut EP by the charming twin sister duo Kirsten and Marie (Kirsten and Marie Nyhus Janssen), followed by the single “My Dear,” which has already charted in Denmark. Kirsten and Marie will be opening Denmark’s SPOT Festival in Århus on May 20. Watch the video for the single here.

The most recent release (this week) is the debut single from fellow Danes  Treefight For Sunlight, “Facing The Sun,” a sunny (pun intended) and lush melodic indie-pop gem with 1960s overtones.  While you’re at it, check out the video for “The Universe Is A Woman.”

Future releases from Tambourhinoceros will include more psychedelic indie as well as the current trend of danceable electronica, with recordings from 4 Guys From The Future, thulebasen and FCAN. –Teresa Sampson
