As 2015 drifted into its opening days back in January, Ja Ja Ja headed to Austria to host a very special show at WUK in Vienna!
As part of the first Ja Ja Ja Vienna event, we invited Vök, Adna, Noah Kin, Sekuoia and Sea Change to join us for very special performances. And seeing as we all had such a great time, we’ve decided to do it all over again in 2016!
Five of the hottest acts emerging from the Nordic region will be heading to WUK in Vienna on Friday 29th January 2016, and we’ll be revealing who they are one by one over the coming weeks… Scroll down to find out who will be joining us at the show, and keep an eye on www.jajajamusic.com for more exciting news!
Júníus Meyvant [ICE]
Since the appearance of his debut single ‘Color Decay’ in the Spring of 2014, Iceland’s Júníus Meyvant – aka Unnar Gísli Sigurmundsson – has toured far and wide, receiving some serious critical acclaim both at home and abroad along the way.
A native of the remote Vestmann Islands, his bio describes his music as “a rich and afflicted take on freaky folk pop with a familiar and soulful feel” – a sound which has captured the attention and praise of radio stations throughout Europe, as well as in the US.
Back in January 2015, we highlighted Júníus Meyvant as a ‘one to watch‘ so we certainly hope you’ll take our advice and head out to catch his sure-to-be-beautiful solo acoustic set as part of Ja Ja Ja Vienna 2016!
The Scenes [FIN]
Formed in the snowy climes of Northern Finland in 2009, The Scenes create music influenced by psychedelia, hardcore punk and progressive rock. Led by singer Konsta Koivisto, the band are already developing a reputation for their shamelessly energetic, lights out and mayhem live performances.
2013 saw the release of their first album Images of Animals Crying in Public, followed by a second release entitled Beige earlier this year. Purveryors of new music and new styles, the band are now fresh from releasing a brand new single entitled ‘Hypermobility’ and we’re thrilled that they’ll be joining us at the 2016 edition of Ja Ja Ja Vienna!
