Danish electronic musicians have topped the charts for three consecutive weeks, becoming the first European electronic musicians to top the Billboard charts since March.
The Danish electronic musician group Electronic Glitch Mob had been in the top 10 since March 6, when it placed fourth, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The group has since broken through to the top 50 in the U.S., the top 40 in Germany and the top 20 in Spain.
In its first week, Electronic Glitches topped the Billboard 200 with 6,749,000 total sales and sold 1,049,821 copies in its first month.
It is the first electronic band to top 1 million in sales since the Swedish band Rådolakt, which topped 1 million on Jan. 1, 2010.
In addition to the Danish group, several other Swedish electronic artists are also in the Top 10, including Swedish duo Thee Oh Sees and Swedish trio D.O.S. The latter is a pop-rock duo led by singer and songwriter Anna-Karin Mällefors.
Mälles group also features a Swedish keyboardist, bassist and percussionist.
Electronic Glitches has been a staple in Swedish music since the late 1990s, when its members were still playing in the club scene in the Stockholm suburb of Bergen.
Mallefors was a member of Swedish band Theeoh Sees from 2003 to 2008, and she also released a solo album, “Echos & Cries.”
Electronic Glies has also toured extensively with artists including U2 and AC/DC, and Mäls solo recordings include “Cries,” “No More Tears” and “The World Is a Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid.”
