The new danish duo AyOwA has emerged from a musical companionship between the two long time friends – Nicolai Kornerup and Hannah Schneider. The sound of AyOwA is electronic with an improvisational approach, appealing in melody and lyric.
Their first single “Sommer” is recorded in a suburb basement in Copenhagen, during a summer that never really started, but left the duo experimenting over a modularsynth and some old reel-to-reels. They wrote an anticipating and chimerical song about the longing for a summer, where beauty, pain and secrecy will meet in a melancholic rush of happiness.
The sound of AyOwA is an electrifying mix of that of Cocteau Twins, Aphex Twin and Mikael Simpson.
For 8 weeks this spring, AyOwA have been on the new music chart of danish national radio P3, Barometeret.
