Hot on the heels of a superb season opener last week featuring Sandra Kolstad, Phantom and The White Album, London’s finest Nordic club night Ja Ja Ja today announces a very exciting line up for its October edition.
Celebrated for bringing the finest in new Nordic sounds to London, The Line of Best Fit’s sister site and night Ja Ja Ja made a hugely successful return in September following a summer break, and has selected three great acts to head up its second edition of the season.
Ja Ja Ja will take place on Thursday 25 October at its home of The Lexington. Tickets are £5 in advance and can be purchased here, and for more information on the event, head over to Ja Ja Ja October’s Facebook page.
So, without further ado, who’ll be playing the October showcase?
Hailing from the musical hub that is Oslo, and hotly tipped thanks to his raucous blend of sultry vocals, guitar led melodic musings and full on good times, troubadour Mikhael Paskalev is one of Norway’s most touted new acts.
Having made a name for herself back in 2007 with the release of her debut album Við og Við via One Little Indian, Icelander Ólöf Arnalds is set to bring her hauntingly beautiful vocals and multi-instrumental talents back to the London stage.
As buoyant and energetic as they are pensive and gentle, Finland’s The New Tigers cover all bases with their self crafted brand of fuzzed out rock. The band are soon to release their debut album, so get a feel for what they do by checking out their video for ‘Clocks of Destruction’ below.
