Line Bøgh is an alternative pop composer, based in Copenhagen. She combines a warm songwriter sound with heavy choir arrangements and electronic elements such as vocal loops, drum pads and keyboard sounds. Line’s first album ”Something Else and Something Else and Something Else Again” received much praise in both Denmark and Germany, and her second album “Like Fire Like Fire” is out September 15th 2017.
Most of Line’s songs are written and pre-produced in Surogaten, Hedehusene. Surrogaten is a workspace for many visual artists and musicians outside Copenhagen, and it’s located in some old factories that used to produce surrogate coffee during World War II. Line shares a workspace there with her boyfriend Christian Gundtoft, who is a visual artist, and who also contributes to Line’s project, for example by painting the cover-portrait for the upcoming album.
Line tours with her sister and and her brother in law Johanne Bøgh and Rasmus Ploug.
The two sisters grew up in a musical home, and always had the music in common. Johanne contributes as a songwriter on newer material, plays ukulele and keyboards and sings the backing vocals. Listen for the core tone in the two sisters voices and you can tell that they are closely related. Rasmus is an experimental guitarist, who creates an electric and raw soundscape around the light and fragile songs. As a reviewer from the Danish newspaper “Fyens Stifttidende” wrote: “Line Bøgh is not afraid to challenge the conventional form and expression of pop music”
Besides from her solo-project, Line is also part of the experimental Danish duo “Nye Mennesker” that combines spoken word and electronic music.
