Fyr og Flamme (Furnace and flame) is a duo consisting of Laurits Emanuel and Jesper Groth, who present themselves as “teenage idols your parents can understand”. Laurits is known in Denmark as one of the vocalists in the group The Grenadines, while Jesper has worked as an actor. According to them, it is Laurits who is the furnace and Jesper is the flame.

About the song they said: “”Øve os på hinanden”is inspired by slightly older Grand Prix virtues and is based on the European seventies disco. The song is a scene preceding on a dance floor, where a woman and a man must try their hand at will. This session can be freely translated to how to behave when curing another, or how to correct in life down the road. Because can you practice it all at home in front of the mirror, or do you have to go out where it really matters to learn it? We have to practice on each other!
