After a summer break, Nordic club night Ja Ja Ja is set to return to The Lexington in London for yet another showcase of Nordic talent. On Thursday September 27, Ja Ja Ja brings you a cast of must-sees: Sandra Kolstad, Phantom and The White Album.
Sandra Kolstad makes electronic pop music that’s danceable, explosive and extravagant. An established star in Norway, she’s playlist and national newspaper material on her home turf and has often been described as “Norway’s queen of electronic pop”. She was nominated at Oslo’s By:Larm festival for a new internationally-breaking artist, and early responses to her forthcoming album (Nothing Lasts) Forever – out 28th September on Trust Me Records – suggest this was as much a premonition than prediction. Known for her highly visual performances, Kolstad is a classically trained pianist with big ambitions for music’s live potential; as well as her expressive, joyful dancing and swathed in kaleidescopic projected lights, Sandra’s accompanied by noise musician Marck Fuck and long-standing collaborator Francis Petter Eldh, a Swedish jazz musician and improvisor. Kolstad’s live show has seduced audiences across Europe, including at major festivals like Roskilde, Øya, Berlin Music Week and Slottsfjell, and at Roundhouse Rising in London.
