About the event

After a busy summer of gigs Ålesund jumped straight into the studio and ran with all the energy of playing live on stage and poured it into their next offering. Their sound is always defined by Alba's soaring and striking vocals, but this EP debuts a more raw and grungier side to the alt pop Bristol band. They are excited to be bringing this new set to the stage for 2023.

Ålesund poured so much warmth and feeling into both the songs and their connection with the audience, their energy and engagement were almost tangible. - The Everyday Magazine

Epic beyond epic...It's magic, it's spiritual that music. - Sam Bonham BBC Introducing in the West

Imagine a London Grammar and Florence + The Machine hybrid. Got it? Now add ethereal, Nordic imagery similar to that of AURORA, and you’re left with the atmospheric marvel that is Ålesund - Darlingzine

There has always been something majestic about Ålesund. They’ve always had IMAX-sized widescreen sound, before which you cannot help but feel humble. Alba Torriset’s voice in itself commands a loyal and dutiful following. - Bristol In Stereo

Megan Dixon Hood is an independent artist taking inspiration from folklore, mythology, nature, and human beings. Exploring otherworldly and alternative genres, her music is written from deep, dark, enchanted woods, hinting at the fairytale world of Florence + the Machine and AURORA.

...Dark gothic storytelling and soaring spellbinding vocals provided a fittingly bewitching performance... - Belwood Music

Her artistry is an extension of her creative interests and fascination with the natural world, reflecting the vast and picturesque landscapes of the mind and of the Earth, into a musical expansiveness of vivid form. - Bittersweet Symphonies

This is dark mystical electro pop with an art pop heart that transitions between dramatic, slow burning dynamics and huge gusts of pure passion and power. - When The Horn Blows

An artist that soaks her sonics in the dark and brooding, Megan Dixon Hood is an artist creating something more than just music. - Earmilk
