Mikkel Holm Silkjær, the frontman of Danish indie rock combo Yung, is finally set to release his long-awaited debut solo record as Holm - the first release with this solo project since 2018""s 'Dappled' EP. Titled 'Why Don't You Dance', it's a product of three years of writing and nearly six months of recording, it's a gleefully varied guitar- pop record that veers between styles, from the fizzing energy of 'Descending' and opener 'Intelligent Moves' to the gorgeously melodic 'Like a Dog' and 'The Rope', via the stately introspection of tracks like 'K's Choice' and 'Back Home'. Recorded by Yung bandmate Tobias Guldborg Tarp (who co- produced alongside Neil Robert Young), Why Don't You Dance is the sound of Silkjær stepping away from his group's predilection for taut rock and roll and instead
embracing a different side of his musical personality, one defined by his sharp ear for a hook, as well as - crucially - his burgeoning ability as an expressive lyricist.

The record is out digitally and on black vinyl, green vinyl (indie store exclusive) & pink vinyl (Scandinavia exclusive) via PNKSLM Recordings (ShitKid, Les Big Byrd, Holy etc.). Pressed on Green Color Vinyl.

Tracks: Intelligent Moves / Valley of Dreams / The Rope / K's Choice / Intermezzo / Like a Dog / Descending / Back Home / Erase & Repeat / Why Don't You Dance?
