It’s time for the first Ja Ja Ja club night of 2015! We’ve got all the information you’ll need about it right here, and we’re once again bringing you news of more extraordinary talent from the Nordic countries!
After our 2014 Ja Ja Ja Festival, the club night is now set to return to The Lexington in London! The week starts with a gig from Rosenthal on Tuesday and ends on Sunday as Iceland’s Ólafur Arnalds takes to the stage with his acclaimed Broadchurch soundtrack. For the lovers of attitude, the week will also bring you a gig from Sweden’s Elliphant!
Tues 17th February – Rosenthal, Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen, London – Tickets
Led by Jeppe Kiel Revsbech, Danish dream-pop outfit Rosenthal are bringing their feel-good vibes to London! If you regard yourself as someone who’s up to date with all the new “the next big thing” bands then Rosenthal is worth checking out. As the gig is a support slot, make sure you are early to the Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen to catch them!
The Swedish rap scene is massive lat the moment, and the talk around Ellinor Olovsdotter – aka Elliphant – is just building the reputation of this thriving scene more and more. This one-woman powerhouse has already supported Charli XCX on tour and collaborated with the likes of MØ and Skrillex. Wednesday night will surely be mental as Elliphant is taking over XOYO, and a day after will head to the Deaf Institute in Manchester.
Weds 18th February – Team Me, Deaf Institute, Manchester – Tickets
Wherever Norwegians Team Me perform, they bring joyous energy to the live sets. The indie kids are kicking off their Blind As Night UK tour in Manchester and will be heading down south to London the next day. Also in April they will be supporting The Wombats on tour, so get into the spring spirit and let the band infect you with their glee.
Thurs 19th February – Ja Ja Ja with Jennie Abrahamson, Psyence Fiction, Mont Oliver and Project Fresh Socks, The Lexington, London – Tickets
We are thrilled to present the first Ja Ja Ja club night of 2015! The line-up is outstanding, set to bring some of the finest Nordic talent to The Lexington’s stage.
There’s a little something for everyone in store, with Mont Oliver bringing alt-rock mixed with hip-hop, Psyence Fiction expressing Americana-influenced, dark Scandinavian indie and finally the night will end with European Album Of The Year Award nominee Jennie Abrahamson’s dusky pop whirl.
Come down to The Lexington and we’ll guarantee that there won’t be a dull moment as Project Fresh Socks play in between the slots to keeping us dancing! And if you don’t feel like dancing you can still enjoy the music by just chilling in cosy corners of The Lexington.
Sun 22nd February – Ólafur Arnalds, Barbican Centre, London – SOLD OUT
It’s fair to say that Ólafur Arnalds is one of the most exciting artists in the world right now. Last year he composed the music for stage adaption of John Ajvide Lindqvist’s book and film Let the Right One In, in March his next project, The Chopin Project, is released and now he’s on an ‘Ólafur Arnalds plays Broadchurch’ tour! Anyone who’s seen Broadchurch will know how masterfully he reveals the different layers of the plot with the hauntingly alluring music. No wonder the gig in London is already sold out, as Olafur won a Bafta for the hit TV show’s music!
