Inside Tracks: ‘Nordic Noise’

By September 29, 2016 No Comments

With help from some of our favourite publications we’re bringing you a playlist packed with new Nordic tips in our ‘Inside Tracks: Nordic Noise’ newsletter edition.

Nordic countries are pretty alright at the music thing. We’re not pretending this is a new phenomenon by any stretch, we were all there when Sigur Rós appeared on the Simpsons, and we know Abba won the Eurovision Song Contest way back in 1974, but there’s still a wealth of talent flowing out of the Nordic countries and it’s showing no sign of slowing: they just won’t quit.

Alongside a number of Outpost clients like Smerz, KIll J, Sekuoia, Slowes, Felix De Luca, Baby Blood, BLØSH, we’ve also featured a host of incredible recommendations from the good people at i-D, The Line Of Best Fit, Ja Ja Ja, Nordic Style Magazine, NME / 6 Music, Alfitude and Swede & Sour.

We hope you find plenty to enjoy here, and if you’d like to know more about any of the artists included please get in touch. For any of you based in London you’ll also have a chance to catch our upcoming shows next month, see full details below…
