In episode #28, I am talking with Lau Højen (Hoyan)…lead singer and guitarist of Carpark North. Carpark North is a Danish electronic rock band and has become one of my favorite bands in the world over the course of the past few years. (I assure you that this is not hyperbole, they truly are that great.) The energy they put into their live shows…the songs they write…the dynamic way in which they produce them and present them to their audience…their unique and badass music videos…numerous albums and singles…awards…music in film, tv, and video games…please join me in welcoming to HOUSTON…THE LEAD SINGER & GUITARIST OF CARPARK NORTH…LAU!!!!!!!!!.

THE NAME

The band decided on the name of “Carpark North” because it represents their ambition for future. “Carpark”: The metallic, the rough – the rock. “North”: Northern lights, snow, stars – the electro. Carpark North – Electro Rock.
