EYE EMMA JEDI [Norway]
Hailing from the glacial landscapes of Norway, Alexander Pavelich and Andrew Murray are the duo behind galactic indie rock outfit Eye Emma Jedi. Armed with invigorating guitars, shimmering pop melodies and dreamy soundscapes, this band’s highly energetic live act is not to be missed.
SATELLITE STORIES [Finland]
Satellite Stories are natives of the northern outpost of Oulu, Finland. Their energetic show has given them a growing reputation as an amazing party band – the audience drives the band, as the band drives the audience, through a packed can of indie pop. The summer of 2013 brought with it no less than 21 festival appearances, including a jubilant performance at their homeland’s main event, Flow in Helsinki. More news is to follow imminently on Satellite Stories next album release.
Iceland’s spectral Samaris released their eponymous debut just last month on One Little Indian. Combining disparate elements of electronics (Þórður Kári Steinþórsson), clarinet (Áslaug Rún Magnúsdóttir) and Jófríður Ákadóttir’s haunting voice, Samaris mix glacial electronica and bold, percussive beats with haunting chant-like vocals – the lyrics culled from nineteenth century Icelandic poems. The effect is simultaneously ancient and modern – an ethereal sound filled with dark spaces and alien atmosphere. Formed in 2011 in Reykjavik, within months they had won both the Icelandic Músíktilraunir (past winners include Of Monsters and Men) and Kraumur Award. The band performed at Iceland Airwaves in 2011 and 2012, and will follow their acclaimed debut with a second album in Autumn 2013.
