Get a taste of the Nordic summer festivals at Field Day Festival in Victoria Park and be touched by the beautiful singing and songwriting of Sivert Høyem, Alice Boman and Jenny Hval. London has a lot to offer fans of Nordic music this week!
Mon 2nd June – Sivert Høyem, Oslo Hackney, London – Tickets
After releasing his latest album Endless Love, dedicated to his own late personal manager Per Eirik Johansen, Norway’s Sivert Høyem has been on tour with his band since May. After playing around Europe and the Nordic countries, he’s now set to make two stops in the UK: in Manchester and at Oslo in Hackney, London. The first single from Endless Love, ‘Inner Vision’, is a beautiful tune with a sensitive, shaky piano and despairing, Nick Cave-esque vocals. We’ve no doubt that this gig will be an intimate experience!
Tues 3rd June – Jenny Hval and Alice Boman, Sebright Arms, London – Tickets
Following her UK tour with Swans, Norway’s Jenny Hval is back in London at the Sebright Arms on the 3rd of June, together with Sweden’s Alice Boman. Alice is releasing her EP III at the same time, so be prepared for a special night! The six-track EP, on which the single ‘Over’ can also be found, is already streaming on Spotify in Scandinavia and the US, so give it a listen and then go see how the songs turn out live!
