The Danish band SKARN is the self-described joker in your deck of cards. An 8-legged trio consisting of drums, standup bass, guitar, vocals and Erling the Duck. The band plays their own songs and a couple of cover songs, with a focus on transporting their listeners to a specific longing or poetic emotion relatable in both a local and global level. The band released their debut album "Hjemad" in May 2020, and was nominated for a Danish Music Award in the categori "Best New Roots Act". On this episode of Red Transmissions Podcast, the vocalist and guitarist of the band, poet, songwriter and booker Mikkel Vinther, shares the creation story of this project, the making of an album as an independent band, the challenges and lessons throughout the pandemic, and what drives this group of musicians to keep on going, rain or shine.
