JFDR with Live String Quartet

Oslo, Hackney

Tickets: £12 - 14.50

Times: 7pm - 10pm

Ethereal soundscapes meet brooding electronics and masterful lyricism as Icelandic prodigy, JFDR, takes over Oslo Hackney.

Iceland’s JFDR, a.k.a. Jófríður Ákadóttir, brings her soft minimal soundscapes, poetic wanderings and cyclical guitar parts to Oslo Hackney for one special evening. Accompanied by a string quartet, her full band and an array of electronics, this promises to be a captivating, enchanting and unforgettable live show from a relentlessly innovating singer-songwriter emerging in the wake of Björk.

Drawing from classical, folk, and electronic backgrounds, JFDR amalgamates the sounds of changing seasons, her voice a current that moves from rough seas to smooth waters, all-the-while evoking the beautifully minimal landscapes of her Scandinavian homeland. But perhaps JFDR shines the most in her capacity as a wordsmith, employing rich imagery to reveal the subtle emotions embedded in each song.

With JFDR’s largest live set-up to date, this promises to be a truly unique evening of poetic mastery, evocative soundscapes and sublime instrumentation. Don’t miss this opportunity to witness the Icelandic prodigy in the midst of her meteoric rise to fame.
