Ok, so it might have been a few years since I last listened to Sivert Høyem, but as I was watching the stunning Majical Cloudz in Montreal some weeks ago, it stroke me that vocally (and not to speak about the very similar looks of the two vocalists), the new material of Majical Cloudz has a certain similarity, in of course the more time-relevant way, to the earlier tunes of Sivert Høyem. Perhaps not lyrically (and definitely not musically), but the dominant, deep vocals of Devon Welsh gives out a hint of recognition towards the Norwegian singer/songwriter, in the more psychedelic, less “radio friendly” way.
Sivert Høyem has provided some very strong performances the few times I’ve been lucky to catch him live, and as he’s heading over to London on November 11th at Bush Hall, we’ve been lucky to get a hold of 5×2 tickets to give out to a selection of you beautiful readers. He might not be as “music blog relevant” as other artists that we usually cover, but honestly speaking, I can guarantee you that this will be an unforgettable performance.
