Childhood friends Christian Hjelm, Andreas Toft and Claus S. Johansen formed the Copenhagen, Denmark-based Figurines sometime in the mid-90s. They released an EP, The Detour in 2001, subsequently signed to Morningside Records, and were then joined by Kristian Volden to complete the band's lineup. In April 2003 they released their debut album, Shake a Mountain, followed two years later by Skeleton, from which this song is taken. The album will be available in the US and Canada from next month and you can find details on where to buy both releases on this page of Morningside's site.

The Figurines website is definitely worth visiting for news, information and a selection of songs to download; check out their MySpace page too.

I'm a creative director and I just completed an animated video for the Danish Rock Band Figurines whom you've written about. It's for their song "Back In The Day" off the "Skeleton" CD.

The band, label and management have approved the video and so I'm ready to post.
on various blogs slowly but steadily.

I haven't really posted too many other places as of yet.

Let me know if you can possibly post.

Many thanks for your time and attention.
