Whether you like pineapple on your pizza or not, Death By Unga Bunga‘s latest album Pinapple Pizza is impossible not to like. After its release in March, the garage rockers have been touring their native Norway and the US, as well as releasing even more music in the shape of the Fight EP. This week the rock band from Moss is heading to the UK and we advise you to get your tickets sooner rather than later!
Death By Unga Bunga will also play this month’s Ja Ja Ja London Club Night, alongside Danish R&B duo Black Dylan and family-centric vocal house experimenters Sísý Ey! Pop down to The Lexington this Thursday for an evening with some of the best acts the Nordics have to offer! Project Fresh Socks DJs will be in charge of the off-stage tunes. Tickets are £7 for non-members, but only £5 for members. Become a member for free here!
This Friday will be filled with some serious Scandi vibes when iconic electronic duo from Norway Röyksopp and Copenhagen-based DJ maestro Kasper Bjørke head to Bankside Vaults for an evening of quality electronica. Get tickets while you still can!
The UK leg of Agnes Obel’s European tour has finally arrived! The Danish musician and producer teased us with some thrilling singles and artsy music videos before releasing her third album Citizen of Glass last month. Obel’s piano led folk melodies sound good on record, but even better live, so make sure you get ticket to a show near you!
