The Northern Hemisphere brings a touch of Scandinavian cool, from indie pop, avant rock, yoik folk, nu jazz and ambient electronica artists.


The London International Festival of Exploratory Music returns to Kings Place with a fascinating line-up of Scandinavian groups, from the dark power of Norway's Deaf Center and Biosphere's arctic electronica to Gothenburg-based EF, with their epic, post-rock soundscapes. Shamanistic chant meets modern technology in Wimme Saari's yoiking, while enchanting singer-songwriter Frida Hyvönen will make you smile.


EF (Sweden) + Tomorrow We Sail (UK)
Thursday, 1 November 2012 - 7:30pm / Kings Place, Hall One
Known for their multi-instrumental music and epic soundscapes, EF's music is filled with emotion and energy; their melodies are sweet, and their dynamic compelling. Top it all off with tender vocals, and you have the unique, compelling sound that makes them such an explosive live band.

Tomorrow We Sail is a group of seven musicians based in Leeds and Sheffield. Formed in 2009 they have spent time developing and honing their sound into what is now a vast landscape of reverb-soaked guitars, orchestral strings, piano, accordion and multi-layered vocals. Their influences are as far-ranging as folk, slowcore, neoclassicism, ambience, and post-rock and their sound has been described as 'glacial', 'ethereal' and 'epic', drawing comparisons with bands such as Sigur Ros, Elbow, Her Name Is Calla and Gregor Samsa.
