Biography

Founded in Copenhagen, Denmark in the summer of July 2007, Northern Portrait is a charming band dedicated to sophisticated guitar-based pop music with a musical and lyrical edge, that speaks to both the heart, body and mind. Less than two months after being established as a band, Northern Portrait was asked to join elegant record label Matinée Recordings; this is all before they had even played their first live show. The first two EPs, 'The Fallen Aristocracy" and 'Napoleon Sweetheart' are now available, and the group is currently working on their debut album 'Criminal Art Lovers'. "Northern Portrait is the sound of elegantly driving guitars, the energy of sometimes gently outrageous lyrics and the mood of late autumn afternoons in the city."
