Ja Ja Ja at The Lexington, 29 March 2012

London’s finest Nordic music showcase returns to The Lexington at the end of March.

If you’ve been addictively lapping up the return of Mark Lanegan, than you may have come across Manna guesting on ‘Wishing Well’ – or seen her debut album ‘Songs of Hope and Desire’ praised across the UK music press. Manna’s music marries psychedelic bluesy rock and dreamy folk to beautiful pop melodies

Denmark’s Freja Loeb‘s debut album ‘Odyssey’ is a catchy beast, but tinged with new-wave atmospherics and influences from The Cure and David Bowie.

Iceland’s Útidúr (pronounced ooh! detour) are a twelve-piece comprising players on double bass, drums, trumpet, violins, a second guitar and an accordion. They play joyous and ambitious chamber-pop with a dramatic streak – think Angelo Badalamenti, Beirut, Calexico and Ennio Morricone. The Line of Best Fit declared them “just incredible. Music to fall in love and get your heart broken to.”
