Nordic Giants left Brighton for Europe a year ago with a special farewell show at The Old Market. Now they’re back at the same venue as part of a UK tour which they’re calling ‘7 Depths of Conscious’. Fans of Sigur Rós and Godspeed You! Black Emperor should pay attention. With elaborate costumes, digital mapping and short film soundtracks a common feature of their shows, Nordic Giants are more of a multimedia experience than a band. We suggest watching the video below, not in the normal internet way of doing things, but by stopping everything, making sure your phone’s off and letting it envelop you.
Supporting them on the night are ALMA, another dramatic ambient act with local connections. The duo, named after “a really bloody powerful telescope”, was formed last year by members of Brighton post rockers Monsters Build Mean Robots and London’s Codes In The Clouds. Having just put out a mini debut album on Fierce Panda, they’re joining Nordic Giants for the tour – and are also playing at Mutations Festival at the end of the month.
