PRESENTED BY MATHILDE LARSEN

MOUNT RUSHMORE SAFARI - is a rock group from Copenhagen, Denmark. The
band was formed in the beginning of 2011, and started out as a musical
playground between frontman Andreas Sorgenfrei and Kasper Nissen (of
The Rumour Said Fire).

The two go back a long way, and had been playing in other bands
together years earlier at the time. Now that they were back together,
their mission was to create a new sound in the studio unlike any of
their previous adventures.

The material Andreas had written led towards atmospheric 80s inspired
pop music, while Kasper as the leading producer gave it a more up to
date indie rock styled expression. The meddle was inevitably
interesting. Mount Rushmore Safari was a reality.

Within the short period of time that the band has existed, Mount
Rushmore Safari has been playing a long series of concerts i Denmark
and Germany, supporting well established Danish acts such as
"Kellermensch", "Coco Moon", "Sterling", as well as international -
"And Also the Trees (UK)", "Gardens & Villa" (US) and "Cursive" (US).

In 2013 their debut album "Elba" will be released. - The band
describes the music as booming pop songs, with rocking choruses and
highly personal lyrics of broken dreams, previous band members and
mental illness.

Of the lyrical universe frontman Andreas Sorgenfrei explains:

- "I was working in an institution for young mentally ill people as a
nightwatchman - a job I was fond of for some years but at the end, had
to face was eating me alive. Suicide attempts and psychotic behaviour
on a daily basis, will at some point take its toll on you, when
everything else in your life is also not looking very optimistic."

"Elba" is produced by producer team - Søren Zahle Schou and Mads Holst
Tønder - Thunder & Lightning Music.
