JFDR, the latest project from Iceland’s Jófríður Ákadóttir [Samaris, Pascal Pinon, Gangly], is a blend of cyclical guitar parts and soft minimal soundscapes.
Drawing from classical, folk, and electronic backgrounds, JFDR amalgamates the sounds of changing seasons, her voice a current that moves through rough seas to smooth waters. But perhaps JFDR shines the most in her capacity as a wordsmith, employing rich imagery to evoke the subtle emotions embedded in each song.
Her first full–length album, co–produced by legendary multi–instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily, is set for release next year.
Support on the night will be provided by Elaine Mai, the electro singer/songwriter who this year released her latest EP, The Colour of Night.
