Information:

Bristol dreamscape pioneers Ålesund (pronounced Aww-le-sund) released their debut EP Shift & Flux on 15th Feb 2019. Produced by Jake Bright (Mary Spender, Doeray, Kate Stapley, Svelte, Future Dub Orchestra,) Shift & Flux is a collection of beautifully crafted songs with a sparse, Nordic undercurrent. Immersive sound; rolling drums; intricate guitar work; and soaring vocals, Ålesund are an atmospheric force from the trip hop heartland that create expansive, emotive and exhilarating sound worlds.

Flawless production, exquisite vocal range and graceful atmospherics...‘Shift & Flux’ might very well be the best song we’ve listened to this year. - Tap the Feed

There’s a film not yet made, for which Ålesund haven’t yet composed the award-winning score. But it must happen in the future... - Bristol In Stereo

Haunting cinematics, total musical immersion and a beautifully Nordic twist; that’s the tour-de-force of Bristol four-piece Ålesund... - Born Music Online

Support From:
Tamasene
Tamasene is the brain child of Elliot Ellison (Cousin Kula) joined by long term musical partner William Wells, as well as Lawottim Anywar (Konketsu) & Joe Milkinson (Hotsteppas).

Ellison writes psychedelic soulful folk songs with a charmful simplicity. After years confined to the vacuum of Ellison's bedroom, this project creates a platform and outlet for these songs to breathe.

For fans of: Andy Shauf, Connan Mockasin, Nick Drake & Whitney.

Claire Northey
French violinist Claire Northey brings an air of the North African coast to the UK. Between trip hop and world music, with looped beats & vocals, Claire’s music is inspired by her time writing for theatre productions in France, Egypt and Morocco.

Humble and innovative, Northey utilised the many textures of her violin to re-mould this traditionally classic instrument. The result was delicate yet powerful.
— Cone Magazine

As far away from Western pop tradition as you can get, her jazz/ folk odysseys weave playfully between trip-hop, Eastern European and Arabic influences... For fans of Bjork, Ennio Morricone and Zero 7.
