lun15MODDI + FARAO
L’indie post rock de Moddi rappelle la pop noisy belge de Deus ou encore D.A.A.U et l’émotion qui se dégage de chaque concert évoque les atmosphères de Bjork et Sigur Ros !
Pourtant, ce groupe, dont le nouvel album vient de sortir chez Propeller (distribué par Pias), est 100% norvégien ! L’homme aux multiples nominations (Spellemannsprisen) depuis 2010, revient avec un nouvel album et un live aussi post rock que mélancolique créé sur son île Senja au nord de la Norvège.
« Quietly intense acoustic guitar, smoldering strings, and a haunting Norwegian-accented voice caught my ear like a tractor beam. This was Moddi, who hail from some tiny island in the north, and who nobody I spoke with knew much about but everyone seemed impressed with. » – Pitchfork
Première partie : FARAO / lien soundcloud
Norwegian singer songwriter Farao first appeared in January with a free download of haunting track ‘Forces’. Her fragile and otherworldly tone instantly connected with the media, picking up tastemaker support from The Line Of Best and radio support from Lauren Laverne.
Farao headed to Reykjavik in February to record with Mike Lindsay from experimental folk group Tunng. ‘Skin’ is the first track from this batch of recordings that is set for release as a digital-only single on May 27th. The song sets a tale of extra marital affair, on which Farao played all instrumentation on the track barring percussion. The release will include a remix from Manchester’s Ghosting Season.
There’s a busy touring schedule ahead, including appearances at this year’s The Great Escape and Secret Garden Party festivals, as well as tour dates across UK/EU with Karl Hyde (Underworld), Moddi and Paper Aeroplanes. Her first UK headline show will take place on May 29th at Sebright Arms, in association with Communion.
