There's still a steady stream of good Nordic gigs in the UK if you look hard enough, and one band that we're particularly excited to see over in the UK are the phenomenal Icelandic band Árstíðir, who we've covered a few times, and who followed up their stunning 2015 album 'Hvel' with a new release in 2018 entitled 'Nivalis'.
They have 5 UK dates and they're pretty much following the road we took with the Nordic Music Review promoted 'Major Parkinson' gigs, but with a detour to Glasgow in the middle, and it all starts at the Exchange Bristol on Tuesday 22nd - a lovely little venue run by great people. They will also play at Manchester Rebellion, which I'm really looking forward to, having not seen a gig there myself.
'Árstíðir' will undoubtedly put on a great performance live, every live review I've seen says they are stunning musicians, so I can't recommend these gigs highly enough.
