Alcoholic Faith Mission : Interview
Alcoholic Faith Mission

What started as a melancholy nocturnal bedroom pop in 2006 by two high school friends, Thorben Seierø Jensen and Sune Sølund has now become a sextet, producing exhilirating, multi-dimensional tunes that would awaken any sleepyhead.  Alcoholic Faith Mission exudes energy and engages the crowd, in similar vein of their fellow countrymen, Efterklang (QRO spotlight on).  On the Danish band’s first ever stop in Portland, the lead singers, Jensen and Kristine Permild chat with us in the balmy evening at the courtyard of Jupiter Hotel, (attached to the venue, Doug Fir) and experienced a slice of Portland original – Voodoo Doughnuts.
