Yngel is a Danish experimental-guitar duo who search for the boundaries of how you can use the electric guitar through composition and improvisation. They use simple tools such as stones and metal objects to explore and interweave different approaches to the guitar and its sound. Yngel draws as much influence from free jazz and punk, as they do from classical and folklore.
The duo is born out of Copenhagen’s wide experimental underground scene. Danish magazine Jazz Special has described their music as “post-everything-you-have-heard-before. Post-composition, post-metal, post-folk and post-african music, post-avantgarde, post-funk, post-minimalism and so on”, calling their debut album among “the most interesting jazz releases from 2015”.
The Copenhagen-based duo consists of Taus Bregnhøj-Olesen & Emil Palme.
