VILLAGE UNDERGROUND, LONDON – MAY 4th
A SÉANCE OF DARK DELUSIONS
DEBUT ALBUM RELEASED APRIL 20th
Nordic Giants have today announced their UK headline tour for May 2015. The seven-date tour kicks off at Leeds’ Brudenell on May 3rd and finalises at The Lantern, Bristol on May 10th. Nordic Giants will play their headline London show at Village Underground on May 4th.
Filled with intrigue and excitement, a Nordic Giants live show is an awe-inspiring sonic and visual spectacle. Using complex digital mapping with original short films –incorporating delicate illustration and animation as well as immersive actor-led stories from highly acclaimed directors – Nordic Giants provide the stunning soundtrack to this emotive sensual experience.
Nordic Giants are touring in support of their debut album A Séance Of Dark Delusions – due for release on April 20th on Kscope, which will provide the soundtrack to this otherworldly cinematic showcase.
Largely instrumental, A Séance Of Dark Delusions reflects the inspired musical experimentation and atmosphere of Sigur Rós, Mogwai, Björk and Pink Floyd. Nordic Giants bring a heavy orchestral brutality through progressive guitar, drum and brass, which are paired with beautiful and haunting electronics as they warp loops and end-of-the-world samples through creeping keys. Mixing dark and light with ambience and raw power, the dynamics of A Séance Of Dark Delusions mark the changing moods of the human spirit.
Nordic Giants have just finished a lengthy European tour in support of Sólstafir and are also set to play a number of European festivals this year including La Ferme Festival, Out Of The Crowd Festival and Aloud Music Festival – the latter of which Nordic Giants headline.
