Two incredible Scandinavian acts share a stage for a special, unforgettable one-off show at London’s The Lexington.
Norwegian/Swedish trio Postiljonen return to the UK for the first time since 2013 where they stunned audiences with tracks from their impeccable debut album for Best Fit Recordings, Skyer. Mia Bøe, Daniel Sjörs and Joel Nyström Holm create music that’s as gentle as it is substantial. Light as gauze thanks to Bøe’s alluring vocals, yet heavyweight through angled arpeggios, they take inspiration from the Balearics, widescreen cinema and massive 80s pop anthems. Postiljonen are often unclassifiable, always enrapturing. March 2015 will be our first chance to hear music from their eagerly-awaited second album.
Swedish pop darling Marlene says that if the sunset would have a soundtrack it would be sampled in most of her songs, mixed with raw R&B beats, melodic keys and daydreams of skyscrapers, beach parties and a bit of homesickness. Her debut EP, released last year, includes hit singles 'Indian Summer' and 'Bon Voyage' was made in collaboration with esteemed producers Elof Loelv (Rihanna, Icona Pop), Oskar Sikow (Erik Hassle, Kate Boy), Jake Oh (Maskinen, Ansiktet) and Tepr (Yelle) & Myd (Club Cheval, Brodinski).
