This week, Iceland’s Samaris return to the UK with their dreamlike, ethereal music, while Sweden’s INVSN bring the rock – and if you’re up for some Swedish/Icelandic songs, don’t miss singer songwriter Freyr Flodgren!

Tues 9th September – INVSNThe Barfly, London – Tickets


Sweden’s INVSN is currently on a European tour and will play their first show in London on the 9th of September at The Barfly. The band has been playing and performing together for a few years now, led by Refused’s Dennis Lyxzén, and have previously released a few records in Swedish under the name Invasionen. Last year they wanted to take their post-punk/dystopic pop to more of a global level and released an album in English under the new name INVSN, so expect something refreshingly new pulled from classic elements of the past in INVSN’s music.

Weds 10th September – Samaris, Oval Space, London – Tickets


Icelanders Samaris return to the UK with their beautiful music, this time supporting The Acid on the UK dates of their European tour!  On the 10th of September, they’ll take the Oval Place in London by storm with their hypnotically fantastic tunes. They will also play in Manchester on the 8th and Brighton on the 11th of September. Make sure to listen to their latest single ‘Brennur Stjarna’ and  if you enjoy it, go see them live for a complete experience!
