Susanne Sundfør + Novo Amor
Susanne Sundfør is a music icon in the making. The singer/songwriter and producer combines beautiful crafted folk-songs with synth-pop, and her latest album “Music for People in Trouble,” is stark and beautiful, often stripped back to Sundfør’s wonderful voice which has an anti-pop tone. Sundfør stands out for her simplicity and remarkable talents of vocal flexibility and storytelling.
Hailing from deep in the Welsh mountains, Novo Amor is the alias of Welsh multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Ali Lacey. His emotive vocals and the sounds he uses, often formed through sonic experimentation, make for fantastically atmospheric songs that are both moving and striking.
This evening will take you on a mesmerising journey of compelling storytelling and arresting vocals.
"Sundfør’s most poignant and personal album to date, 'Music For People In Trouble' marks her out as one of the most compelling artists in the world. The album was inspired by a journey Susanne made in a bid to re-connect, travelling across continents to contrary environments and politically contrasting worlds from North Korea to the Amazon jungle".

"Novo Amor had the audience mesmerised from start to finish. Every exquisite strand of instrumentation used built to something grander, and it is clear how sonically driven every element of his music is (presumably heavily influenced by Lacey’s career as a sound designer). However, the most spellbinding sound of all comes from his delicate and fragile falsetto." For Folk's Sake
