Cartographs is a post-rock band from Copenhagen, Denmark. Originally formed in 2014, with a more metallic and atmospheric sound, the band has since grown into something more compelling with influences from black metal and folk music. It results in captivating songs that reflects the emotional musical journey the band has taken since their inception.
“Our music has always been meant to move people, help people and give them a space in which to reflect”, tells Caspar Schaap, guitar player and main songwriter. “When we first started, we were a melodic hardcore band focused more on riffs and cool beats than genuine songwriting. Lyrically the themes where personal battles and sadness. Now we have matured, and the musical approach has changed as well as our philosophy concerning lyrics. Although the core concept of wanting to move and help people has remained the same, it is now reinvigorated and reinforced due to our new mindset.”
