Danish/Swedish/Estonian Impro-Avantgarde-Electronica trio SHITNEY was formed in 2015 with the purpose of creating contrasting acoustic/electric music. After a widely praised debut album, EARTH CORE, Shitney has had frequent live activities both at international festivals, and concerts at cinemas, churches, club venues and much more. The three members now have an in-depth knowledge of each other's musical expressions, constantly developing and refining their dialogical real-time compositions together. Three musicians with different musical approaches and backgrounds united in a hybrid of abstract and concrete, minimalism, noise and smoldering symphonic passages. Shitney embodies the force of giving space for diversity, and manages to present the unexpected mix of styles and sounds in a natural and distinct way. Earth Core was nominated for a Danish Music Award 2017 in the category Special Release of the year. Currently they are working on their second album.
