Biography

Hunting down the elusive Nordic Giants is about as easy as tracking down the truth of the legend in the Blair Witch Project. Hidden behind feathered masks, demonic looking costumes and effortlessly changing between many instruments, nobody is fully aware of their true identity and their ritualistic pre show preparations of body painting and donning feathered masks and animal skins is nothing short of shamanistic.

The mysterious duo perform live soundtracks to a backdrop of award winning short films which do not shy away from dealing with poignant and dark subject matters. Dreamy ambient swells, epic builds and huge moments of power overwhelm their captivated audiences who describe the experience as something akin to a religious experience.

The Brighton based post-rock duo smashed onto the music scene little over a year ago. Influenced by the likes of Massive Attack and Cinematic Orchestra, the band have already shared the stage with Lamb, Ratatat, Mogwai and headlined The World Premiere of ‘The Blot Symphony’, an inspirational visual art piece created by Ralph Steadman.

‘If you have been itching to discover something entirely new and refreshing, look no further than this Brighton based duo who are set to take the indie world by storm. Writing and performing entirely between the two of them, these young talents have created some of the most beautiful and heart-wrenching songs in years.’ (Plaid Magazine Canada)

    Listening to it for the first time. I'm petrified. It's been a while since've last felt that while listening to a new band. I'm very curious about their live shows. This is epic. People must listen to it.

    Omg, saw them live with Solstafir yesterday in Sthlm, and I can say with full responsibility that it was one of the most moving gigs I have ever seen (and I have really seen some). Don't miss them anyone if they play in ur town.

    The new EP is awesome. I love the fact that you use more piano driven melodies, than guitar.

    Caught these guys supporting God is an Astronaut in London. They stole the show IMHO. Can't wait to see a full show from them.
