Hjaltalin Come To London

Rare show from Icelandic group

Icelandic group Hjaltalin are set to play a one off London show this Thursday (November 11th).

Think of the Icelandic music scene, and you tend to drift off into a world of post-rock soundscapes, glacial synths and otherworldly vocals. However that’s only a small part of the music scene, as Hjaltalin can demonstrate.

A seven piece group, Hjaltalin swap volcanic guitars for something more soulful. Debut album ‘Sleepdrunk Session’ was a cult success, while follow up ‘Terminal’ was justifiably given a more prominent release.

Soaring vocals are full of intent, with none of the quivering emotional tenderness usually associated with Icelandic music. Fresh from a show stopping performance at Iceland Airwaves, the band are set to play a number of British dates.

Hjaltalin are due to play London’s Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on November 11th, alongside a special Scandinavian bill.

Support group Mono Stereo are making a rare British excursion, venturing out from their Swedish base. Travelling to London, the bill will be completed by a number of top secret guest DJ slots.

Hjaltalin have added a second date to their short burst of UK appearances. The band will perform at the club night White Light at The Lexington in London, taking place on November 12th.

With their new download only single ‘Suitcase Man’ out now, the band will complete their British trip with a short live appearances on Radio 4’s ‘Loose Ends’ show this Saturday (November 13th).

Hjaltalin have confirmed the following show:

11 London Hoxton Bar & Kitchen
