Nordic Giants – Post/Rock
Brighton’s post-rock duo – Nordic Giants smashed onto the music scene little over a year ago. Influenced by the likes of Massive Attack and Cinematic Orchestra, the band have already shared the stage with Ratatat, Mogwai and headlined The World Premiere of ‘The Blot Symphony’, an inspirational visual art piece created by Ralph Steadman.
Hidden behind feathered masks and effortlessly changing between instruments, the duo performs live original soundtracks to a backdrop of award winning short films (Provided by Shorts International). From dreamy ambient swells, epic builds and huge moments of power to a combination of dark, funny and beautiful short films, which can bring tears, smiles and actually scare you at times. Imagine the visual story telling of a cinema experience mixed with the raw energy and passion of a live gig- and you’ve hit the nail on the head!
The band are managed and mentored by Ciara Nolan, who has previously worked on projects for the likes of David Bowie, Dame Shirley Bassey through to the infamous writer Hunter S.Thompson and has been a huge inspiration to the band.
